I am not a person who thrives on structure and routine. Some people would say that is a big flaw of mine, lol. I love going with the flow, letting whatever is going to happen just happen. So I would say that is my daily mantra and focus, “it is what it is” and asking myself how to handle each individual situation as it arises.
What is your biggest NDCQ moment? And/Or how does Not Dead Can’t Quit motivate you?
I am motivated by NDCQ and their live for today attitude. Everything from picking up at the end of the day instead of leaving it for tomorrow to having difficult conversations in the moment instead of leaving things left unsaid. I would say that, personally, my biggest moment of clarity came to me soon after my divorce. Making the decision not to sit around and wait for things to get good again, but trying to make it happen for myself and for my children. I made a lot of decisions out of my comfort zone, not knowing what the end result would be, but hoping and trusting that it would move me into a better place. I felt empowered again, I felt like I had purpose again, and eventually I felt proud of myself.
Given the current circumstances that my family, and all families, are facing at this time, my goals are small. I but knowing that I’ve hit larger goals in the past when I was unsure about the out come keeps me from fearing failure.
