"Sure, I had my tough times, but you don't sit there and say, 'Wow, I was stocking groceries five years ago, and look at me now.' You don't think about it, and when you do achieve something, you know luck has nothing to do with it."
I came across this quote from Kurt Warner, while helping my son with his state report on Iowa. Somehow it has inspired my to keep at the ol'art making while in my currently position of unpaid grocery shopper, maid, childcare provider etc. and who knows what can happen in five years, I could be playing in the NFL.
