"Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there some day." --A.A. Milne
More on patience. My dream goal will happen some day. As long as I work hard at it, it seems. I feel really confident, even if it takes some time, that it will happen before the end of the year. And if it doesn't, well, then there's always next year.
I get nervous, though, too, especially when I'm talking to people about my dream goal and I hear a hint of doubt in their voice. However, that just makes me want to sell the idea to them even more. I want to prove to everyone, whether I have to or not, that this is really what I want, and what is best for me to help me grow into a better and more independent person.
I've gotten over the nervousness of being rejected. I don't have time to be disappointed. I only have time to be determined and push on with force, but again, being patient.
I'll get to San Diego someday, even if I wanted to be there yesterday. It WILL happen with perseverance.
