Dreamy Perspective

Don't give up, pursue your dreams, only you hold the key to your destiny.  Oh, sorry...broken record.

Clearly, I have been drawn to a certain theme when it comes to quotes.  As I delve deeper into recovery,  I am becoming more and more fascinated by the [undeniable] control we have of our own destiny.  It is all on us, you guys.  We cannot choose our circumstances but we can choose how we react to them.  This may not seem like a foreign concept to many of you, but are you applying it to your own life?  Am I?  No one can take your dream from you except yourself.  Want to climb Mount Everest?  Get off your ass and start training.  Fight for it.  Or perhaps you just want to get  through your next semester with a decent GPA...don't give up.

It's not supposed to be easy and it's not supposed to be comfortable.  Ultimately, it's up to how hard we are willing to work for what we want.  I think that it's extremely empowering to know that I, Elin, get to choose who I want to be and how I want to live.  I am responsible for my life.   No one else.  Just me.

Marinate that.


p.s. Yes, I am wearing my black floppy hat as I write this.  Told you I wouldn't take it off.
