Missy, here. How many of you have watched the show on ABC called The Middle? We just love the show. Especially the character, Sue. She's so positive and is always trying hard to follow her dreams. She never notices when people (her own family!) forget her or run her down. She's happy and loving and an eternal optimist.
I think writers have to have a little Sue Heck in them. We need to try to focus on the positive. Ignore the negative (unless, of course, we need to take feedback to heart and make some changes). And we need to jump in and try again and again even when others don't think we can do it. We need to be persistent against all odds.
Do you have a little of Sue in you?
P.S. In looking for a photo of Sue, I found they actually have a page on the website called Sue-cessories. Motivational posters of what she's learned this season! :)
