Have you ever asked yourself “Where did those 10 years go”? I have been asking myself that all day
Today marks the 10th anniversary of the 2008 Olympic Games. When I think about it, what stands out most is how it almost did not happen. Along the way we had great supporters but there were also many who gave every reason why they thought pursuing my Olympic dream was not even remotely a good idea. Their reasons were many a varied including telling me I was too young, too old, too thin, too fat, too short, too tall, too whatever. There were times that these too’s almost got to me and I considered giving up. What I realized was that those were all the reasons they were giving to themselves for not achieving their goals and dreams. What a relief that I did not listen to them. Has this ever happened to you? Has someone told you something about yourself that does not sit right but you think maybe they could be right? My hope for everyone is that you follow your own journey and give all the “too’s” back to the people who are trying to give them to you.
