Do it Anyway!

“Don’t let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use.”  — Earl Nightingale

As a drunk I was the king of excuses.  I had to learn to break the habit of excusing myself through everything.  I learned the “Excusers are Losers”!  Now that is a bit rough, yet I had to be rough on myself to get the courage to do it anyway!  I had not finished college, I had spent 6 years working on a 4 year degree.  Partying always had priority.  So after 2 years in recovery I decided to go back to school, I took a couple of classes.  But then I realized if I was gonna do it I needed to simply do it!  So I went for it full-time, and low and behold I completed.

Believe me I had every excuse imaginable to back me up.  I was married, I needed to work full-time, we had a baby on the way and I needed my recovery support.  How would I fit it all in and sleep?  Where there is a will there is a way.  Everything fell into place.  But it only aligned when I put the effort in and actually did it anyway!

Go, Go, Go…
