|Eye on the prize. Tunnel Vision|
When I was at the early stages of starting over, I looked around and it felt like there was no one like me. None of my friends or family had gone through anything like what I was facing. No one I knew was in a similar desperate financial state. I looked for hope in things like The Secret movie but felt more frustrated because there was definitely no one like me there either. The rich and famous were already that way. Everyone but me seemed to have it all together. Seemed to have arrived. I felt like an even bigger failure. So I withdrew into my own little world with my kids and hatched a plan to make my dreams a reality. Then slowly I started sharing pieces of that here on my blog.
But what I needed so desperately then was an example of someone like me, who was making it out. Who was reinventing their life and finding some type of success. But I never really found that example. So I decided that even though I had no idea what I was doing, I'd put myself out there. I wanted to be very real and raw, so that hopefully someone else might not feel as alone. I became a chick on a mission to prove that anyone can become whatever they set their mind to. That anyone can deliberately turn their life around at any point and make dreams that seem so out of reach, come true.
The only way to do that is to document my journey so that you can see me start from nothin but hope, and turn it into somethin full of life.
I'ma call it: The Relentless Pursuit -Project
I put all this out there for one simple reason. That some how, some way I believe with all of me that those dreams will come to life. And I want this day, and this post to always remind me that I've had a plan. And to remind me that no matter how many brick walls I will run into on the way to fulfilling those dreams, that if I am relentless and stay true to myself, they will manifest. And when they do I want all of you to be part of it. I want you to take this journey. and this challenge I've given myself, with me. I want you to know, believe and see that anything really is possible.
Believe in magic.... Let the games begin!!
