Hey there Shiners and Shinettes, I am so glad to be here with you once again!
Many times, we speak these hindering words of “I CAN’T”. These words are so hindering to our lives that I wish that it would just disappear. I have murmured this statement so many times in my life that I could have a small fortune if I were saving up. How many of you can admit that? Well one day I sat back and said; why am I so afraid to do something? Is it because I want validation from others or when I run an idea past another, I would not get the response that I desired. As I said, I ONCE lived that afraid-life full of “I Can’t”. Hey, as the saying goes…I’ve been there done that…but NOT ANYMORE!!
Well darlings I am here to let you know that it is time…it is time for YOU to let go of “I can’t”. I understand that there are some things that we are not able to do at that moment, and maybe we have to plan better so that we CAN accomplish some things, however, to say we CAN’T leads to I Haven’t and then giving up. Can we afford to give up on ourselves? Uhhhh NO!
We have invested so much into ourselves and many times, we just don’t follow through. Is that what we stand for? I am sure that is NOT what we stand for. I know that we have dreams, and plans. I know that WE are not weak and WE CAN do anything that WE put our minds to do.
I went from I Can’t, to I CAN, and I did. WE can do anything as long as we do not hinder ourselves with self-doubt. If we focus on US and not trying to obtain approval to see what another will say we will be able to achieve so much more.
I know that YOU can get that job.
I know that YOU can get your degree.
I know that YOU can be a homeowner.
How do I know?? I know because I could and I did just that! I stopped thinking negative and planned better. I wrote things down, made small goals, which turned into big goals, the big goals turned into accomplishments. All you have to do is STOP saying or thinking that YOU can’t and then YOU will see what YOU CAN do! Whatever it is in your life that YOU are speaking “I CAN’T over…STOP!! Step back-take a deep breath- nod, and state OH YES I CAN!
I have no doubt that YOU CAN…I am proud of you already!
Until next time…keep Positively Shining!!!
