Blogember November 10 - A time when you felt unstoppable

11 year old me was cooler than I am.

I remember being 10 or so and knowing that I needed my life to change. I needed to set goals and to meet them a timeline was going to be important. I worked it out, wrote it down and got to work. At 10 I knew that I needed to graduate early, and I was determined to find a way to make that happen. I found schools that would allow me to earn credits without wasting time on filler classes. I got my grandmother to get me into them and I worked really hard. I had plans and goals to reach and no one was going to stop me.
I spent the better part of the next 5 years to graduation (which I did at 16) feeling pretty unstoppable. I had my head in the books, played one sport per season and really just kept going. I had no time to loose sight of what the end game was, but still managed to be really social and found a balance in my life that I've never again found. I was unstoppable.
Inspiration, determination and a plan was all I needed. It's actually a decent reminder to myself that when I get all of my gears working at once I can really get shit done. I should probably tap back into 10-16 year old me and get that steam back. Oh sweet self-reflection!

What about you? When was a time you felt unstoppable?
