The great pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do. - Walter Bagehot
We enjoy doing, and lately we have not been doing much of anything but waiting for NASCAR to begin, once it does we will once again be doing and feeling alive. The past few days, we have been getting calls from many of the tracks confirming our work for this season. We are excited and then at the same time…terrified…scared that we just might make our dream happen this season. We have been struggling for so long and so use to failing that having things happen for us is scary…is that strange?
Many of you will probably say it is strange, and would probably ask. How on earth can you be afraid of living your dream? Unless you have lived a life without, you will never truly know. Sure you can try to understand, but until you have walked a mile in our shoes, you will never truly get it.
It’s not always easy to let go of those old ways of dealing with challenges because it feels comfortable, even though it is not for the best outcome. We remember that the past two times we got this far into our dream and came here to Daytona, things fell apart and we had to find other work which took us away from following the circuit. We began to believe that this could not be done so it takes us rethinking our past mistakes and this time doing something totally different. And, that totally different way is to believe and follow through on all the good things, knowing and accepting that our good is finally here for us to enjoy and live.
Every time we allow ourselves to think about failing, we pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and get back in the game…that’s life!
