I have come to realize that anything is possible if I work at it. It sounds so 'pollyanna' but it is so true. Just think of any hobby you have decided to do. You start off slow, you make mistakes and little by little, day by day, you get better. This is the case with my knitting. I had to pull out my knits and purls many times before I perfected the dance of the needles and the yarn.
I never gave up. There are many situations in the past when I have given up. Today, giving up is not an option. I will ask for assistance in any form before I decide to quit. This is something I never did before. I am humble. I am only human after all.
