Why Can't You?

Ahh I love big strong horses! I think that explains a lot about me in many ways.

It is how they are grounded solid, their strength, and you can see the confidence that they know who they are and no one can tell them differently or would dare mess with them. I think I've lost a bit of that since college but I think that comes from my recent injuries the last couple of years...they tend to make one feel weaker, especially when you can't do for yourself. The great thing is one can still work on it each day & progress.

"One of the greatest discoveries a man makes, one of his great
surprises, is to find he can do what he was afraid he couldn't do."
Henry Ford

Isn't this sooo true! I don't know how many students of mine think they can't do something & they haven't even tried. I remember even as a young kid I would think "Well, tell me one logical reason they can do or have this & I can't"  There never was one. I tell my students the same thing now. 

What have you been afraid you can not do or have?

Yes...! Until these illinesses...I save my strength. But I do know that I am worthy of having everything that everyone else has in life! :o) Each year I used to set goals for myself and conquer year was to conquer all my fears. I did them all except for water. Each year, I set attainable goals. Now...I'm not sure what I'm able to do...only day by day now. So I use more of the mental strength then before. :o) I know I can attain what I put my mind just takes me longer. :o) I love that quote! I hope you don't mind that I used the other quote in my journal. :o)
