Unlimited potential.

Some people might see this and think "So?" So what, she is a mail deliverer. She isn't an executive. What she ALSO isnt is...unemployed. She isnt...unhappy. She a job she hates. She isnt...on welfare. She isnt...negative and angry.

She is making it. She is working in a job in which she takes great pride, one she enjoys. It probably pays pretty well, and Im guessing the benefits are better than any *I* have ever had. She understands her work, knows her contribution matters. She LIKES it. Isnt that all ANY of us really want?

So, if my kid grows up and works at McDonalds, or bags groceries...will she be "less than"? Do you ever eat at McDonalds? Do you bag your own groceries? The point is, our kids can dream big, they CAN succeed in the bigger world. They CAN have jobs that fulfill them. WE are the catalyst. Raise them to believe they can be just like Joy in the video above. Then get out there and MAKE it happen.
