This saying goes: the one that does something by its own will, will do it and keep on, even if that involves things that are apparently not favorable.
The one who dies out of his or her own will, will do so even if he or she has to be buried standing up.
I keep thinking about this saying in leu of our move to Guatemala. There are many things we will miss from the US and objectively we might be better off over there yet we are here and every time I found something that I am having to bear thanks to this decision I just think to myself: El que por su gusto muero aunque lo entierren parado!
