Do Your “It”

There will be people who tell you you can’t do it.

Who say that it’s too hard, that you aren’t equipped, that others do it better than you, that it’s not worth your time.

The worst are those who call themselves friends and, out of concern, pat you on the head and tell you that you are so cute to attempt to accomplish anything.

Because your friends should support you, right? And if they don’t believe in you, maybe they have a point.

Then again, real friends will support your dreams. Will believe in you.


And for those who don’t know you and yet still doubt, why should their opinions matter?

They don’t know what you can and can’t do.

Maybe they can’t do what you’re trying to, but it doesn’t mean you can’t.

You have to block out those negative voices and try it.

Shoot for your dream, your goal.

Look for the people who do believe in you and let those be the ones you listen to when you need to talk to someone.

Work your ass off, put your heart in to it, and believe.

Whatever your it is that you want to do, do it.

Someone out there said no to every good idea that has ever been thought.

And maybe it won’t happen.

But isn’t it better to try than to let the negative people suck away your chances at a dream?

What is your “it,” your thing you’d love to accomplish?

Getting Older Ain’t All Bad

Today is my birthday. My 37th birthday. Sometimes I can’t believe that I’m nearing 40 because wasn’t college graduation just last year? Or didn’t I just get married? Or didn’t I just have my first baby(or even my third)? Then again, I’m perfectly content with this age. Things change, absolutely, but something that change can […]

This Is Our Autism: Pour Your Heart Out

the middle boy

Our autism is a huge collection of Angry Birds stuffed animals, carried around and slept with, even though they’re too numerous to be carried in one trip. It’s eyes that flicker to mine, but don’t linger. It’s lots and lots of peanut butter sandwiches. Sometimes it’s stares and questioning glances. Our autism is two brothers […]
