I’ve never been one to shy away from a challenge. I have lived under the premise that if it’s worth having, it’s worth fighting for, and that has served me well. Like removing the word “can’t” from my vocabulary, I also try never to utter the word “impossible”.
When my dad was still with us, not a day went by that he didn’t mention the phrase – where there’s a will, there’s a way – and I adopted that idiom rather quickly. I learned my survival skills and my desire to succeed by heeding the wisdom of that small string of words. By keeping that will fed and nourished, the two letters that may have impeded the possible slowly fall into the alphabet once again and all things are attainable.

When I begin any new task, the thought never crosses my mind that I will fail at that particular undertaking. The final product may not be the desired result, but a reasonable facsimile is still an encouraging beginning. I dive headfirst into the endeavor and face the dragon head on because the reward comes from trying. Failure can only come from not attempting the initial project.
All things are possible and the only time I will use the letters “I” and “M” are to say I’m going to try my best!
