My mom was always throwing out famous quotes to get us through our various challenges growing up.
One of my favorites: Where there’s a will, there’s a way.
Her point: if you want it enough, you’ll find a way to make it happen.
It took a while for me to really buy into this one, but it’s worked out to be true most of the time.
Without a doubt, I ended up strong-willed.
And, to this day, if I’m determined enough, and willing to work for it, I can accomplish what I set my mind to.
Except when it comes to making other people do what I want them to do.
Mom never taught me the cool quote for that.
