Dear Overcoming Girl,

One thing you can count on for sure is that hurdles are going to appear in your life. They come along in every life, and often when you least expect them, or appreciate them.

Sometimes the hurdles are too big to see over, and sometimes they’re small enough that you can just hop right over them.

But every time you come to a hurdle, you get to make a decision…no matter how big or small it is. You get to decide how you will move forward in spite of the hurdles you encounter.

Walk around them, jump over them, chip away at them with a chisel…bull-dose them with your bright smile and optimism. Turn them over and use them as a fort, build something cool and creative out of them, or sell them on ebay. But WHATEVER YOU DO…DON’T LET THEM STOP YOU. Not for one single minute.

You are stronger than all your hurdles. YOU ARE, YOU ARE, YOU ARE. Don’t let anything or anyone ever tell you anything different.

You are one extraordinary woman. Keep it up.

You are loved.
