How often do you say that?
Do you mean it?
I mean... WHY can't you do things?
Are you too old? Too thin or fat? Too many children or responsibilities?
Do you not know how to do something? Is that why you CAN'T?
Do you think people will laugh or think badly of you?
I'd like to suggest that perhaps
You've simply decided
that you CAN'T.
As I get older, it seems easier to sit back
and allow others their opportunities.
It seems easier to sit back and bemoan the FACT (?)
that I CAN'T do whatever it is.
The REAL fact is..... that it only SEEMS easier.
Because while I am busy
I am miserable.
I am depressed.
I don't understand why I'm so tired.... when I am not doing anything extra to make it so.
I feel OLD.
So.... it's not really easier to CAN'T, is it?
I will silence the internal nay-sayers
and get UP and say
Okay.... I CAN figure this out....
I CAN find a way....
I CAN try :-)
What I CAN'T do is live a life where I myself have stunted my own development and blamed it on others. What I CAN'T do is limit my own life because of fear or laziness. What I CAN'T do is settle.... close my own life to new hopes and possibilities.
I want to live a life of CANS....... not a life of CAN'Ts...
