What are you telling yourself? by Barbara Cozza

Let me begin with a fact for you to ponder….

If you think you can’t do something you’re right

If you think you CAN do something you’re also right…the choice is yours.

This is something we all ponder but don’t realize until we get older (unless you’re one of the lucky ones that caught on sooner). You truly do have your fate in your hands and don’t let anyone tell you differently. Not sure what you want that fate to be?

In case no one has done this, I’m giving you permission to go out and try lots of different things, take that job that looks fun, go on that trip with your friends, drink the funky drink that looks interesting. To take a bite out of Nikes playbook…JUST DO IT! I know society says you should get a job, or start a business or get married or have babies or whatever it is you feel society is screaming in your ear. You don’t have to do any of what it says you should do. You should do what makes you feel good inside. And sometimes you have to do many different things to find out what makes you feel best. Because when you feel your best you are your best for yourself and all those in your life. So embrace your differences —in fact celebrate those differences and figure out where you fit into this crazy world

Too busy to do the things you want to do? Well I almost passed up the opportunity to be part of this group, because I was so busy. If we don’t help each other and share our knowledge then we’re all destined to repeat errors and struggle along the way. So what am I doing right now?….I’m on an exercise bike and “writing” this via voice on the notepad on my iPhone. We can all make things fit; those things just need to be your priorities. This is a priority because we need to share, and the only way I have time to share is to combine the two. So, this way I can get my workout in to get healthy and be the best me so then I can help my friends and my future friends to be the best they’re going to be.

Here’s to embracing who we are, what we want to do and having the guts to go out there and do it. Remember it only takes 5 seconds of insane courage to change your life. You control your destiny!

Know we are all here to cheer you on as you take on those big hairy goals and run for your dreams. Here’s to celebrating with you when you reach those goals.
