P is for Possible
I don't care who you are, anything is possible. If you have your heart set on doing something or being something, you can make it happen. It takes work to attain your goals. It is possible.
I think every young boy wants to be a professional athlete at some time in his life. Most don't make it. Some because they are not athletic, some because they don't believe they can. I always told my students to have a back up plan.
I wanted to be a writer from the time I was twelve years old. My parents supported that but, told me I needed a back up plan. So I went with my second option. I studied to be an English teacher. I ended up teaching special education. But I never forgot about my writing. It took longer than I'd thought but, my first book was totally self-published in 1978. I typed it, paid to have it bound. There were exactly 50 copies. I gave most of them away. It was 2004 until I published again. It is now 2012, I have several books under my belt. I am now finally coming into my own as a writer. Now, that I have retired from teaching. Anything is possible.
Follow your dreams to possible.
