"If your life was easy you wouldn't appreciate what hard work and determination can get you. That's more important than a weak character and no troubles."

This inspirational quote was said to me by my older sister, Heather.

I was having a bad day, my truck wouldn't start, a snowstorm had hit and an important trip had been cancelled due to it. I'd had a bad day at work and I'd gotten a not-so-great grade on a college paper.

I asked my sister why my life couldn't be simple or easy and she responded in an e-mail, with this motivational quote. She made me feel better and it made me realize she was right. If I had an easy life, I might not have as many problems but I would not appreciate what I've worked so hard to gain, either.

I printed out her e-mail and pinned it on the wall next to my treadmill (which is also by my computer where I do my homework) so that when I am working out or taking a test I can remember that exercising and studying are hard work but that I will appreciate what the hard work gets me (being skinnier and a college degree).
