Don’t ever accept anyone else’s preconceived limitations. If there’s something you want to do, there isn’t any reason you can’t do it.

Never give up on something that you can’t go a day without thinking about.

This scene and quote from The Parent Trap immediately came to mind, with my first half marathon just 7 days away! And if you’re wondering, I’m feeling a little bit of both, Hal.

Hallie: “He said he’s really anxious to see you.”

Elizabeth: “Anxious-nervous, like he’s dreading it or anxious-excited like he’s looking forward to it?”

Hallie: “Anxious-excited, definitely.”

Take pride in how far you have come, and faith in how far you can go.

As my best friend put it the other day,

"You start your ‘big girl’ life tomorrow."

Wow. Unbelievable. I’m staring at my computer screen in awe right now because I don’t even know what to say about it. It’s exciting, it’s new, it’s a first, and I’m eager to see what it’s all about. I’m starting out as a Marketing Associate and focusing on local advertising and branding. Happily I’ll admit that the job description sounds interesting…like a good match. Finally…

I know people keep saying that the job market is tough—and believe me, I wholeheartedly agree. But let me stress how different it is to be the one saying tough versus living it. Simply put, you don’t know what the economy really feels like until you’re out there on your own two feet, looking for a job yourself—or should I say, online with your own two hands. That sounds a bit more accurate for the digital age.

I think it’s in these times that we need to rely on our faith, above all else, to endure. Faith that a greater plan will carry us through the “tough” we’ve experienced or have been told about. Faith that we will never be stuck in any of our temporary uncertainties. Faith to find patience and trust, and to see the “certain” within the uncertain.

Though it may have taken a few months to get to where I am right now, I never lost hope in knowing there was a greater plan for me. Even if it meant declining several job offers along the way, why settle to be unhappy? I didn’t. So no matter what uncertainty you’re facing, I hope my story gives you hope.

And with day one of my “big” new life just hours ahead of me…I am patient, I am trusting, I am certain. Bring on these “new directions.” I have faith.
