Each day, we can grow in wisdom and strength. Strength does not have to be limited to our physical abilities. We can grow stronger at different skills, confidence, and will power. When we say yes to the good and no to the bad, new opportunities will find their way into your life. As we find the power within us to persevere, that is where we find our silver lining after spending so much of our time in what seemed like a clouded path.
You can do anything you put your mind to. Stop worrying about what is out of your control and focus what you can change or improve. When you start making time for yourself and the things you want in life, you will become a version of yourself that you did no even believe was imaginable. Make goals, no matter how big or small they are, it is all progress. When you are tired and losing faith in your mission, persevere. To persevere means to know that you are going down a dark and uncertain path, where you may lose sight of the finish line from time to time, but if your faith remains unbroken, you will be rewarded.
Understand this, you are going to fall. More often than not, you are going to fall so hard that it seems impossible to get back up. But when we fall, we do not have to fall backwards. We can fall forwards. Always fall forwards. When you fall, it does not mean that you regressed, you are already further along than when you started. To truly fall is when you give up on yourself. Do not worry about what others think. At the end of the day, this mission is between you and you only. You are the one who has to look in the mirror at the end of the day and ask yourself, “did I make the absolute best of my time today?” Most days we cannot answer that question with an honest yes. That is ok. Just embrace the times those proud moments when you cannot wait until you can look at your reflection and feel a sense of pride. As always, fall forwards, keep your faith, and take care of you, because when you are the best version of you, everyone benefits.
