Get Over It

Roadblocks & Detours, But No Stopping...
Roadblocks & Detours, But No Stopping...

Isn’t that what we need to tell ourselves?

Just get over it!

But we can’t, or don’t want to. Or we’ve tried and failed repeatedly.

Instead, here’s an alternative to our old ways.

Move on. Don’t let mediocrity, or fear, stop us from following our dreams.

I mean, why would we?

Unless we are so tied to what other people will think of us.

If our dreams revolve around being of service to others, why would anything stop us?

Slow us down now and then maybe, but stop us? Rubbish.

But here’s the catch, no one will be more excited about our crazy dream than us.

  1. Jeff,

    Thanks for the continual encouragement to never give up. It comes through loud and clear in your blogs!


  2. And no one will understand our dream unless we explain it to them . . . not beat them over the head with it. Increase your support system by sharing it. Others may still call you crazy.

  3. Bob, Donna, and David (and the others too), the not giving up part is the hardest.

    Or maybe it’s the giving up part that’s the easiest.

    Writing is helping me, like many who have done it long enough, to work through some transformational things.
