Making It

Ten - Taking Flight - 227

A Man’s Gotta Do What a Man’s Gotta Do - And So Does a Woman!

Well, this is it! The moment when your toes leave terra firma and you spread your wings and soar.

Well, isn’t it?

Don’t worry, I’m not going to send you out there alone. Take your friend with you, the same one I take. I discovered her in this quote: “One’s best friend is in the mirror.” Once you know that, there are really no dragons out there that you can’t go out there and slay.

But what kind of person are you, you who are about to launch yourself on the unsuspecting world. What kind of woman wants to make her mark, seek out adventure, and create a life for herself? Look in the mirror at that woman brimming with confidence, self-assured, self-reliant, and full of belief in herself and what she wants from life.

Knowing what you want, striving, sharing, working hard - life is so rich it seems impossible not to get some of the goodness if you go after it.

And your dreams are pointing the way. Your dreams are as individual as your thumbprint, so don’t let anyone tell you they are “wrong,” “crazy,” or “impractical.” Dreams can’t be controlled. Let them fly where they will. Let them tell you what is important in your world; then seek it out and fill your life with it.
