When I ask "must I be reminded?" I don't mean, "Puh-lease, I never want to see that saying again!" I mean, "I wonder how many times I have to see it before I believe it. And when will I be able to believe it without seeing it?"
WHO KEEPS TAKING THE ADVENTUROUS "LET ME TRY THAT" SPIRIT OUT OF PEOPLE? Well, I suppose there will always be detractors. I could listen to them if I wanted. Sometimes my own worst critique is me. I suppose there are times I shouldn't listen to me either.
But if there are detractors then there must also be CHEER TEAMS who encourage us forward, even when we're stumbling. There might be times when I'm my only cheer squad. I don't want to cheer myself into doing something stupid, such as going 95 mph on a slick road, but I SHOULD listen to the encouraging cheers (from self and others) who get me going in the right direction.
I CAN DO THIS!
When I do, no matter how long it takes, I will celebrate.
Just in case you need a reminder to move in a positive direction: You can do this. You got it. GO YOU!
