I’ve turned into a train.

Remember the childhood story about the little engine that could? He was having issues going up a hill, and out of perserverance and his motto “I think I can” on repeat he was successful at climbing said hill.

Well, I’ve become that train. I didn’t realize it until today, but I’ve been like a parrot, continuously repeating the same thing over and over and over and over

and over

and over

and over until someone shoots and eats the parrot while I’m trying to finish something. Only, I don’t say “I think I can”. I’ve moderned it up a bit. Made it a bit more valley girlish me. My mantra?

I can so totally do this.

Say it together with me now:

I can so totally do this
I can so totally do this
I can so totally do this
I can so totally do this

Pretty catchy, huh?

I’ve said it while writing proofs for my homework. I’ve said it while trying to finish working out instead of giving up and eating a gallon of ice cream. I’ve even [unforunately] done it while forcing myself to run with terrible shin splints. By terrible, I mean crying when putting the slightest pressure on my legs and having to be carried out of the work out place by the husband. I can’t not though. If I “not”, then I regress. If I regress, then all I’ve done so far is pointless. I’ve also recently said it while driving on solid ice trying not to die.

So does it work? So far, yes. Hopefully it’ll continue, because I need it to help me not only survive this semester, but survive this semester with grades I am PROUD of.

I can so totally do this.
I can so totally do this.
I can so totally do this.
I can so totally do this.
I can so totally do this.
