Life is like riding a bicycle. Sometimes we sail through. Sometimes we need no hands. Sometimes we fall off. Sometimes we breakdown. Sometimes we crash. But always get back on the bicycle. It’s taking you places.

Don’t be discouraged when things don’t work out. Don’t be discouraged when you get knocked off course. Don’t be discouraged when you don’t see instant results. Just keep going. Remember why you started. Remind yourself where you’re going. It’s still possible. Where there’s a will, there’s a way.

Sticks and stones may break your bones, but don’t let it break you. Sometimes it feels like life is hitting us constantly, not even giving us time to get back up before hitting us down again. But there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. There is always a way out. There is always another path. Keep your eyes open or maybe take a look at things from a different perspective. Most of all, keep going, and you’ll get to wherever you want to be.
It can be overwhelming when all the ties holding our lives together start unravelling at once. Sometimes life throws so many curveballs we don’t even have time to recover before we’re knocked down again. But don’t give up. Don’t give up on life and don’t give up on yourself. You can handle this. You can get through this. You can’t always control what happens to you, but you can control what you do about it. You can do this. When you think the final nail is in, think again, you’ll be surprised, you will still rise.
Keep hustling. Keep going. Don’t let other people’s opinions and expectations stop you. Don’t let the fear of failure or past mistakes stop you. Take life as it comes and adjust your sails to continue in the direction you want to go. It’s never going to be an easy journey, but it will be worth it if you keep endeavouring to do what you love.
Remember why you started and keep going. Look back at how far you’ve come and keep going. Imagine where you could be and keep going. Keep going, keep trying, keep hustling. Think how much you’ll have to show for it. Whether you end up making a u-turn, staring at a crossroad, or coming to a dead-end, just keep going. Don’t sit on the fence and let life pass by.
It’s time to take control of your life. Time won’t stop ticking on. People won’t stop opening their mouths. The world won’t stop to hand everything to you. We have to dream and pursue and work and keep going. There’s no one else who can live your life for you, whether you think they do or think they can. You’re in the driver’s seat. It’s time to put your hands on the wheel.
