“I was so afraid of becoming my father, mostly because I thought I couldn’t. Because how do you become someone that great, that brave, that selfless? I guess you just have to try.”
I could have just as easily been the one to say that, but I didn’t. In fact this quote came from How to Train Your Dragon 2 and Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III said that. I guess this kind of goes without saying that I am just like him. I’m so afraid of being my dad and I can’t understand how to do all those things, but (like Hiccup) I guess I just have to try.
I already commented the other day on how I feel Hiccup and I are a lot alike and I’m more convinced than ever. Today, or more appropriately this evening, Steven reminded me that I’m just going to have to be a leader and I’m the best person for the job. I guess that means I just have to try to be brave, selfless, and great.
I hope I don’t let anyone down in the process of trying (and possibly failing) over and over again. I pray, if you’re in the same situation as me, we will succeed together. All we have to do is try! Pray for me and I’ll pray for you. 🙂
Love and Prayers!
