My theme for A to Z is going to be great quotes. I'll choose quotes from books, movies, or famous people. I may or may not comment, and I plan to keep these short. Hope you enjoy!
I have a difficult time giving up. Many years ago, I graduated from college with a teaching degree. It was December, and I was job hunting. Hunting at the worst time of year for an opening in a school. I ended up taking a crazy job selling some sort of cookware. There was this intensive training program, and they made you feel very elite for making it into the program. I know you're smiling right now.
I'd never been as miserable as I was in that job. One night, my husband told me that I should quit. "Don't do it if you don't want to." He made it sound very simple. Factual. So, I did quit and worked as a substitute teacher. I went on to find a great teaching job in April.
I'll never forget that support. Even today, if I am forcing myself to continue something and I complain about it, my husband says, "You don't have to sell dishes if you don't want."
And then I smile. The fact is that it's up to me. Obviously, selling cookware didn't rate high in my master life plan. Don't give up on the things that are important to you.
