Choose your words, wisely

byHenry Duthler
 
When she was 13, 
"Succeeding in school was impossible...
Finding true friends...Impossible
Believing in herself... Impossible
Trusting her instincts... Impossible
Seeing her inner beauty... Impossible
Realizing her potential... Impossible
Then living up to it... Impossible..."
She recited these words in her mind
Daily, and believed them.

Then something changed.
that changed everything.

It all started with a single word.
She replaced the word..."Impossible"
With another...
That one word that changed everything
Was "Important."

And everything became possible.
