Because I Can!

Well what many either know or don’t know is that I am committed 100% to a 2JZ GTE Swap. That’s right, and that’s not even the best part. I am going to put it in a 2011-2013 Scion tC……….


I’ll wait for you to finish laughing…………………………


Now that you are all done let me tell you why!


Most of you probably don’t know this but I lost my father 4 years ago today. My father was a man who believed he could do Anything. When I say this I am being 100% honest. He never ever backed down from a challenge, tough situation or obstacle. He was a modern day Mr.Fixit. When others saw it as impossible, he saw it as “No Big Deal”


Having lived the past 4 years without him I am starting to see more and more of him in myself, which is hard at times but it is also very comforting to me.


Over the years, my  father was a huge supporter of me. He believed that I could do anything I put my mind too. He always knew my potential and at the same time pushed me to be better than I thought I could ever be.


Part of the reason why I am embracing this challenge is to test all of my skills, all of my abilities but most importantly to help prove to myself that I am as good as my dad always thought I was.


In my life, as with everyone else, I have had many ups and many downs. I was always doubted by most of my peers, grew up with very few friends and was generally and outsider. This doesn’t really bother me today, however, it did when I was younger. Not very many people had any faith in me and it was evident more and more each day.


Doing something as crazy, wild, difficult and challenging as this will not be easy nor will it be cheap, and I am ok with that. I am going to try something that has never been done before. I am going to tackle something that many think is impossible and I am going to put everything I have into something that is really special to me. That is all that matters.


This kind of project doesn’t come by often. Many people might think about doing a project, only to put it off for years and then realize that they should have tried it when they were younger. Not me. I am not going to sit back and leave things for later on in my life when I have the ability to do them now.


Life doesn’t wait for you to make a decision so you need to make them for yourself. If you wait for the perfect time in your life, guess what, it will never happen. You need to do things for you and no one else. You don’t need the approval of others. If you want to be great go out there and be great. If you want to be spectacular BE SPECTACULAR. No one is going to do it for you. If you want someone to hold your hand and baby you for the rest of your life that’s cool as well. However, for me, that’s not the journey I want to take in my life.


We all have a purpose, what’s yours?



Anything is possible, but nothing is possible until you try!!!!
