I now know I can

Is it possible that there is nothing we can do if we put our minds to it? I am a firm believer that is definitely the case. If I had not believed it before, the last couple of months have definitely made me a believer for sure.

I have never been the type of person that was big on manual labor. I am more of a desk person. I can negotiate contracts, manage clients, keep good books and just about anything that does not involve manual labor. However, since my dad’s diagnosis with Lymphoma I have discovered that I can do just about anything I put my mind to.

Most of my friends would never believe me if I said I ran plumbing, laid tile, painted walls, changed vanities, hung blinds and a myriad of other things. As a matter of fact, if you had asked me a few months ago I probably would have told you I did not believe it myself either. However, when someone you love is in need you somehow find hidden talents and capabilities that you would not have otherwise thought you would have been able to do.

I believe that we all have an amazing amount of ability just under the surface. However, we are either never presented with the opportunity to discover it or doubt keeps us from making an attempt. Think about it. I bet each and every one of you have done something at one point in your life or another and said to yourself, “how and the world did I do that?”

My hope for each and every one of you is that you find that hidden talent that will surprise and delight you. When it comes your way, believe in yourself and give it your all. Tell yourself that you know you can. I now know I can.

Have a great day and remember to be the reason someone smiles today.


One Comment on “I now know I can

  1. Thank you once again for another important reminder. I do agree when we put our mind to it we can tackle anything. For some of us however it might just take a little bit longer. I’ve discovered that it is okay. It’s more about accomplishing the goal and doing your best effort. So with that being said, since I’m the laborer let’s just for fun give this a try. You have 3 hours to clean the entire house from top to bottom. I can sit at your desk and answer the phone, push the pencil, and type on the computer. I know I could do it. Wouldn’t that be fun. LOL. Thank you for always inspiring me. Kim
