Amazed

Do you ever stop and think Wow, I did that?  Do you ever just stop and be amazed by something you have done?  It doesn’t have to mean anything to anybody else, just you. Well I have.  I have been blessed with 5 instances  in my life that,  when ever I stop and think about them, I just can’t quite believe that I had a part in the making of it.  The first 4 are of course my children.  When I look at the people they have become – are becoming. I just am amazed by the wonder of it all. That I had a part, in their  evolution is just incredible to me.

The remaining instance is  my book.  Talk about a person stretching!  I know me and I never thought I could write – ever. Then one day I just started writing and when I finished I had a book!  The idea that I have written a book is just incredible to me.  It is like my fifth child.  There was a lot of pain, uncertainty and proud in the making of “Detour”. It may sound vain, but when ever I pass by my book, I think WOW I did that. Sometimes I just pick it up to read a paragraph.

I would encourage you to do something that amazes you. Don’t worry about what others think, do it for you.  What is that thing you have always wanted to do? Is it run a marathon, write a book, paint a picture? There is a song that says ” You can chase a dream that seems so out of reach and you know it might not ever come your way, Dream it anyway.”

So today, do something that amazes you, even if you feel you can’t. Do It Anyway.
