I remember my first patient out of school. She came in bed ridden, able only to move her big toe. Today, she is one of the most active residents in the facility. She never gave up, no matter how hopeless it seemed to be.
Day after day, having to use a lift to get out of bed, she came to therapy and did the best she could. To this day, no matter what life throws at her, she puts a smile on and puts her best foot forward.
Life can be hard, as we all know. It doesn't have to be defeating. One day at a time, do your best at whatever is in front of you to do that day. Do one thing to move closer to your dream. Before you know it, you will be there.
People will try to put you down, they'll tell you every reason why you can't be/do, what you want to be or go where you want to go. I've been told, at least twice, "You're a nobody." Once when I spoke to a publisher at a writer's conference. Once when I was speaking to a man seeking speakers for a local event. "Who would listen to you? You're a nobody." exact words.
Well, guess what? I AM somebody. I AM a child of God. I AM a great therapist. I AM a wife, mother, grandmother. I AM Sharon. God has a plan for my life, a plan for good and not for evil, a plan to prosper me and not harm me.
I will be and do whatever he lays on my heart to be and do. There are no limits, not age, education, experience, platform, that can stop the plans God has for me.
I will never stop growing, never stop learning, never stop moving forward. I AM open and available for whatever opportunity opens up for me. Success is when preparation meets opportunity.
Fantasizing the freedom to be more than I can ask or think or dream!!
