Famous last words
"Writing a detective story seems quite difficult. I don't think you could do it."
- Madge Watts, in a letter to her younger sister, Agatha Christie
Have you ever become determined to succeed at something because someone told you that you weren't capable of it?
I don't know why anyone is cruel enough to tell someone else, "You'll never...", but there you are. I have taken great satisfaction in accomplishing things that I was told I could not.
Among other things, these include...
1. Finding an apartment (three, actually) in NYC.
2. Getting hired as a reporter.
3. Meeting people (more than one) who would love me for who I really am.
How about you?
