I will by ErinBird I will by ErinBird
"Stop saying , 'I wish' and start saying , 'I will' ."

No one gets anywhere in life just by wishing . Successful people get where they are by trying and doing what they want/need . Some of the happiest people I know didn't sit around saying , "I wish I was happier .." they got on with their life and did whatever they wanted to do to make them happy (: I want good grades , but i'm not gonna wish for it , I will work hard by studying to get them (:
Of course there are some circumstances where saying 'I will' instead of 'I wish' doesn't always work haha .

The weather was so nice yesterday and it was perfect for this picture (: this isn't my quote . yay 2 more exams next week for me and that's it ! I'll be freeeee . I'm still really busy at the moment so I'll probably make a journal next week giving updates are stuff .
Have a nice day and don't forget to smile !

...And that is why I am taking Irish dance and swimming lessons this summer :aww:  I've always wanted to, and now I'm actually doing it!

Dancing has actually gone really well.  It's great exercise (which is good, because I'm so busy I don't always make time for that), and I love Irish music, so that's a plus, too :)  Swimming hasn't worked out as well, primarily because I haven't been able to have many lessons.  My fiance's sister is teaching me at her community pool (I'm an adult learner, and there aren't a lot of opportunities locally for that - most classes are for little kids :( ), but we keep getting rained out, or have an unexpected issue, or etc.  So I've only had 2 lessons, total...

Good to hear that dancing worked out well :aww: sorry to hear that swimming didn't go so well on the other hand - so is the first time you're learning to swim or are you trying to improve your skills?

I have never learned to swim before.  Growing up, I was never around deep enough water long enough to learn.  I am trying to gain at least a basic understanding (i.e. being able to float and/or tread water), primarily because it is a safety issue - I don't want to have to be nervous anytime I do something that involves water.  Also, my fiance likes water activities (like boating and parasailing), so if I know how to swim, I will be able to do more things with him.

Ahh I see :aww: my parents took me to swimming classes when I was little as they saw swimming a basic skills I needed to have, but even if they didn't take me, I would've learnt at school anyway as luckily we have a pool. It's nice to hear you're trying to swim now though, especially so you can do more things will your fiance (congrats on the engagement by the way!)

Never a true quote said! So many people have lost the power of dreaming and putting it into action, and so many people are told their dreams can never come true, so they don't even try, they just accept that that person knows everything, sad really.

Yep, I guess some people just lose track of them or are made to believe that things simply can't be done and are always being told, "That'll never work, so don't bother trying", and they always seem to be told this by people that have never tried themselves :(

This reminds me of the book we finished in language arts: Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson. It's a true story, and this quote matches perfectly with the book :)
