You’ve Come So Far — Keep Going!

Remember why you started

Just because it isn’t happening right now doesn’t mean it never will. Think back to where you were a year ago, or two or five. What struggles were you facing that you felt convinced you could never overcome — but did? Which goals did you feel certain you could never reach, but in your own time, were able to meet or even exceed? These past experiences are evidence of your capacity to heal and overcome. You may not be exactly where you would like, but you’ve come so far from where you once were. Trust that the rest will happen in its own time. You’ve disproven your doubts and fears countless times — you can trust that you will prove yourself wrong this time too.

Keep going. Regardless of your current level of skill, regardless of your current circumstances, and despite your doubt. If you love something, completely and without question, don’t give it a second thought. Head towards it with open arms.

It Will All Be Worth It

Sometimes it will hurt. Sometimes it will feel like all of your hard work is going down the drain. But that’s part of the whole experience of when you come out successful at the end. Everything will pay off, just stay patient.
The Power Within

It’s okay be to be scared sometimes. Life can be daunting, risky, and unpredictable. But you know what else? Life is full of unexpected surprises, acts of kindness, and moments to cherish. It may be scary, but it’s all definitely worth it.

Keep Pushing

I hope you keep pushing. I know it’s hard and that there are a million things going on around you but stay focused. Stay passionate about where you’re headed, even if you don’t know exactly where that is yet. At least you’re moving. Sometimes, you find where you’re supposed to be by simply choosing a direction and taking a step. Be good to the people along the way. Keep true to what you love and the kind of life you want to live. Keep pushing, you could be almost there and not even know it.
Oh The Brave

If it’s important to you, that is a good enough reason to pursue it. You do not need to justify why you fight for the things that you head towards. As long as you know why, that’s all that matters.

Don’t Ever, Ever, Ever Give Up

Never give up. It’s like breathing—once you quit, your flame dies letting total darkness extinguish every last gasp of hope. You can’t do that. You must continue taking in even the shallowest of breaths, continue putting forth even the smallest of efforts to sustain your dreams. Don’t ever, ever, ever give up.
Richelle E. Goodrich

When the day is over, let it go. Don’t dwell on what you could’ve or should’ve done. Tomorrow is another day and another chance.
