A little patience

  
A little patience can go a long way. When you’re on the edge of giving up, hold on a little longer. When you’ve made a mistake, give yourself another chance. When something is harder for someone than it is for you, hold their hand tighter. Perseverance. Determination. Hustle. Endurance. They’re all rooted in patience. Keep going. Keep holding on. Keep believing. Good is coming your way.

Feeling good enough

   
As the year draws to a close, we naturally reflect on what has been and what will come, who we are and who we could be. And that is beautiful. But as we do so, I’m sure we’ll find that what has been and what will be one of our biggest challenges is the feeling of being good enough. Our dreams feel too high in the sky and our prizes too much like perfection. But the truth is we don’t need to be perfect to be happy or successful. We have a whole toolkit inside our minds, from positivity to confidence to endurance to creativity. And we can mess up, we can grow, we can embrace our flaws. We’ll always be good enough and worth so much. There’s no one like you or me. In this upcoming year, let’s not tell ourselves otherwise. Let’s not limit ourselves with self hate and self doubt. Let’s free ourselves and believe in ourselves. We’re really the only thing standing in our way of everything we want.

Thought of the Day: Scars

quote-out-of-suffering-have-emerged-the-strongest-souls-the-most-massive-characters-are-seared-with-scars

In the height of battle, we are sometimes wounded. And that can linger both physically and mentally. But we shouldn’t ever feel ashamed of our scars. Each points to a pivotal moment in our journey. Each tells a story of endurance. Each is a symbol of strength. Each marks our triumph against that which tried to pull us back and hold us down. We should feel proud of our scars as much as we are proud of our accomplishments. They make up who we are today. Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls.

Doing what you have to do

To reach the top of the mountain, we have to walk through some gruelling terrain. Sometimes that means making difficult choices. Sometimes that means enduring monotony and exhaustion. Sometimes that means falling down. Because sometimes we have to do what we have to do in order to be in the place we want to be. So take it in. Look around. Test, learn, and adapt. Keep going, because the view at the top is worth it.
