The second quote, of which I am unsure of the author, is "I thought about quitting, but then I noticed who was watching." This quote also summarizes something very important to consider when we are about to quit. We might not realize that our children or our family might be watching closely, and that our acts inspire them. I know in my case, my children admire my decision of going back to school to pursue a lifelong dream. They know it is nowhere near easy for me; they have seen all the sacrifices made, all the sleepless nights and all the difficult times. But they have also seen me keep going and choose not to quit even when I thought I couldn't do it. They have witnessed the determination of a mother who, amid all her responsibilities, has continued to look at her end goal and work toward it, and that not only makes them proud, but gives them an example to follow.
