I am a little late with the Writer’s Challenge this week, which is hosted by Colleen and Ronovan, but as always the prompt word is an inspirational one! We have ‘believe’ to work with, and despite finding several quotes that almost say what I wanted, they weren’t quite right, so I’ve thought up my own!
When others believe in you, it spurs you on; when you believe in yourself, then you can truly achieve your dreams
-Judy Martin 2016.
Sometimes I lacked the confidence
To try out something new
Despite a burning ambition
To make my dreams come true
With so many things, I wanted to do
Yet being afraid to try
Meant that I was getting nowhere
And time was passing me by
I couldn’t pass my driving test
No matter how many times I tried
I was stuck in a dreadful marriage
Where all I did was cried
I felt I was a failure
As I didn’t do so well at school
I was never going to be anyone
Just some silly little fool!
BUT those times are far behind me
I have turned my life around
And it is due in many ways
To all the support, I found.
I was suddenly encouraged
To take my driving test
Instead of doing it covertly
And feeling extremely stressed!
I had my lovely family to turn to
When I finally got the divorce
I actually went to University
And passed my two year course
My biggest wish came true
When I gave birth to a girl
She was a longed for baby
And brightened up my world
My blogging friends have played a part
In helping me succeed
This led to me publishing a book
Something I never thought I’d see
But the outcome of it all
is that everything I have achieved
Has been with help from others
And the fact that in myself I believed!
