I almost cried as I tried to debate what to do — what would be the best for my family? I was going through such an intense internal debate that my children noticed. They asked what was wrong. When I told them I was considering if quitting was the best thing to do, they immediately said, "Mom, you can't quit now, you have worked so hard!" As I heard those words, two of my recent columns came to mind — one about how anything is possible when you don't give up and one about letting go of the guilt we feel as mothers. It's definitely easier said than done, but it needs to be done.
