Tile with text: How did you do it?

How to answer this question? I guess it depends on what the word ‘it’ stands for. I have been asked this question before. Like when people learned that I raised my oldest from the young age of 17. How did I do it? I just did. Or when I tell them that when my oldest was a mere three months old, I went to university full time. How did I do it? I just did. Or when I tell them that for I left my home country to start a totally new life over here. How did I do it? I just did. Or when I tell them that I have written a book despite working fulltime. How did I do it? I just did. Or when I tell them that besides my work, doing household chores and spending time with family, I keep up several blogs, run a writing group and I write books and they ask how I do it all… I just do.

I am a survivor, a go-getter, an achiever… if I want something, I make it happen. And no, this doesn’t mean that I steamroll people into giving me what I want. That’s not the kind of person that I am. No, it means that when I want something and I know I am the only one who can make it happen by working hard or being dedicated, I go for it and I make it happen. I just do it.
