Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and drive through traffic in a car you are still paying for – in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it.

Ellen Goodman 

If your organization requires success before commitment, it will never have either. Part of leadership (a big part of it, actually) is the ability to stick with the dream for a long time. Long enough that the critics realize that you’re going to get there one way or another…so they follow.

― Seth Godin

Family is not always blood but the people in your life who want you in theirs, the ones who accept you. They are the ones who would do anything to see you smile and love you no matter what.
