What's stopping you?

There are so many people that say "I wish I could...". Why can't you? If you want to travel the world, do it. If you want to go to an Ivy League school, strive for it. If you want to stand on top of the Empire State Building, eating ice cream... what's stopping you?

Far too often we fool ourselves into thinking that dreams are just that, but I believe so much more than that. There is nothing stopping you, from anything. We let ourselves care too much about what others think, especially spouses/family/close friends. If they don't like what you are wearing, who cares? You have to wear it, not them. If they don't approve of your career choice, why stop? They don't have to do it for the rest of their lives. I say this because I have seen an overload of women.... and men.... that allow their worth to be dictated by someone in their life that they believe is so important.

Don't let anyone sell you short. Be you, do you. Stop thinking of other people, and make the person you have to live with every second of your life happy- you. Make you happy. Never stop making yourself happy. You'll regret not doing it when you're 60.
