“Listen to the mustn’ts, child.
Listen to the don’ts.
Listen to the shouldn’ts, the impossibles, the won’ts.
Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me…
Anything can happen, child.
Anything can be. “
This is one of my favorite quotes. Not only because its by one of my favorite authors, but because its something I really believe in. It doesn’t matter where you come from or who you are. It doesn’t even matter how limited your resources may be. If you really want something, anything is possible.
And with the right support system, that probability becomes even higher. Because competition is fierce, the world is cruel, and people can be mean just in spite. And often times the challenges we face most, are those negative influences festering in our own minds against us. But if I teach my children anything; I just want them to believe in what they want most. To learn to believe in themselves. And at that point, any challenge facing them is half won before they start.
