I Guess You Just Have to Try

“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!


About Christy

I enjoy: my family, my faith life, photography, drawing; writing, working on cars, basketball, football, and baseball. These are just a few of the many things I like...you'll just have to read my blog to know me better to know more of them. Other things you may not catch on that I enjoy are: cats, angels, ballroom dancing, Christian music, camping (being one with nature and all of God's creations), traveling, cherry and apple blossoms, and the colors blue (in all shades), white, black, dark purple, and SOME shades of pink. (Rainbows are cool, too. And I'm NOT a lesbian! Although, I'm friends with some gays and lesbians as well as a few transgenders.) I am Roman Catholic. I graduated from Johnson County Community College, where I majored in Animation in hopes of fulfilling my dreams of being a computer generated animation movie maker. I also have a degree in Corporate Communication from Avila University. I'm currently employed at Nestle Toll House/Haagen-Dazs (at Oak Park Mall in Overland Park), I own my own business -- C & S Productions, L.L.C. (check it out at http://www.csproductionsllc.com), and am single. My favorite time of year is Winter and the Christmas season! It's just so...well, I can't put it into words. ^_^ Lastly, I am 36 years young!
