Have I ever doubted myself? Of course – I’m human! But I still believe that “Nothing’s impossible”! This is a line from Disney’s Alice in Wonderland, and it’s one that I can relate to on a daily basis.
When Alice first falls down the rabbit hole, she tries to enter Wonderland through a small door. Due to her size, she is unable to
During my mid twenties, my Doctor informed me that I would have a difficult time conceiving. I can still remember the gut-wrenching pain that I felt in the bottom of my belly as the Doctor was giving his diagnosis. I never accepted my diagnosis. I simply believed that “Nothing’s impossible”. Six years later, I gave birth to my little Princess. And three years after the birth of my little Princess, I gave birth to my little Prince – which was just a year ago. Imagine if I had just given in to “It’s Impossible”!
I always wanted to get a graduate degree, but life was just happening too fast. How in the world would I work 40 hours a week, take care of a toddler and go to school three times a week? I was asked this question by several people when they found out my intentions. Would it be difficult? Yes, it would be extremely difficult. Outside of class I would need to study, write papers and tend to my home and motherly duties. Did I give up on my dream? No!! I received my Master’s of Education degree two years after attending my first class. I had such pleasure in telling all those naysayers “Nothing’s impossible”.
In my home, the word “can’t” is not allowed – it is a bad word. I want my Princess and Prince to grow up knowing that “Nothing’s impossible” as long as they keep their dreams alive. Will there be naysayers along the way? Yes, but like the line in Alice in Wonderland, “Nothing’s impossible”.
