The person who irks me is Mr. or Mrs. Naysayer. The nerve of them. They are like the people who once said “man will never fly.” Why, look at that jet trail in the sky. Or like the people who warned Columbus he’d sail off the edge of the world if he took off on his foolish journey. Hello, America!
Or the person who told Angela Bell to forget writing because it’s too hard to get published. Ha! Not one, but two books contracted are on the way!
How about the man who told us we’d be sorry if we adopted children. Our best decision ever!!
These naysayers want to extinguish our dreams. Are they trying to scare us away because they fear trying themselves? There's an old Chinese proverb that says, "The person who says it cannot be done should not interrupt the person doing it."
