Why shouldn’t it be you?

We often tell ourselves “it will never happened to me”.

When we entertain that type of thinking then we preclude ourselves from the possibility that the unlikely will ever happen to us.

Someone is going to accomplish each of these items on this list.

Why shouldn’t it be you?  Why can’t it be you?

What would be on your list if you dared to engage it?

I know it can be done, as many of these are not examples, they are real people’s lives.
