Try And Stop Me

Available in 8.5 x 11 print in the InEverything printshop


A few weeks ago someone asked me to describe myself in one word.

“Determined” I responded without skipping a beat. 

That evening I asked Clark the same question. “How would you describe me in one word?”

“Hmm. I don’t know. Probably, determined.” I laughed. At least I’m self aware?

: having a strong feeling that you are going to do something and that you will not allow anyone or anything to stop you : not weak or uncertain : having or showing determination to do something

One thing I know about myself for sure is that if I feel strongly that I need to do something, I won’t let anyone or anything get in my way. At least I try not to. This may occasionally rear itself as a childlike temper tantrum, but most of the time I refrain from stomping my feet and pouting my lip. My goal is to make intentional decisions on a daily basis to not quit something I feel deeply convicted about. 

If there’s one thing I’ve learned in my life it’s that there are always things that will try and get in the way of my dreams, ambitions, calling and future. We have the choice to face them with fear, and apprehension, or to face them with boldness and courage. 

There will always be set backs, obstacles, and uncertainties, but I challenge you to adopt this simple phrase today: Try And Stop Me! 

In Everything I put my mind to, try and stop me.
