I am worth it... So are YOU!

Okay, so here goes round two of trying to post this... Ever hear someone say: you're worth it.

I hear it a lot. So much that I don't believe it.

Not one bit.

You are worth the big dreams. Whatever that dream is... Take it, grasp it, and run with it! No matter how crazy it is... You can do it!

I was talking to a man today and I found myself saying: I can't, I might fail, I can't imagine if I actually...

Yeah, I might fail. Actually, it's highly probable I would. But I am worth that failure.

Because one time... I will succeed and for that moment: every defeat will fade away. The success will conquer that failure and drive it away. And poof: just like that I will be successful.

Never-mind how many times I fell on my face...

Your parents don't talk about the 100's of times you fell on your diapered bottom. We just know that we're successful in walking now. Even as a person that learned how to walk multiple times in my life... We don't dwell in the past. They don't talk about the days that I barely could drag my feet across the floor. Or how I would get frustrated and angry.

We talk about the runs I go on and the victory I face.

So if you're scared... Just remember, your fear is holding you back from being a victor.

You have failed before, but you're on the cusp of something great!!

I have thought about quitting my blog... But something always leaves me coming back for more. Truth be known, I love writing... I love coming to the drawing board with thoughts, grievances, and my creativity. A blank canvas for words.

Little did I know people really still read this thing.

My mom called me last night to tell me that one of our relatives met some people from Ohio and they said: Thank God for Victoria Wilcox from Horseheads, NY! We printed stuff off from her blog and it helped our niece get diagnosed. This is the loose interpretation I got!

Years later, I can still look back to dark days of pain and hospital stays. I still don't quite grasp what it was all like but I know I am glad to have that in the past. Never did I dream that people still read my old entries. I had no idea they were even useful. Sometimes I feel as though I have given up hope... Somehow, my story still helps people. I don't know how.

Anyways, here I sit amazed. Hello, to the Ohio readers, and I hope your niece gets better soon!
