As you face obstacles in your life, go through them. Never go around them just because you are afraid. You’re cheating yourself. Going through the obstacles you encounter will help you to garner all the richness that your character has to offer.
We do things with a lack of judgement sometimes but when we learn from those, it can make an improvement in our lives. All we hope is that the mistakes leave a positive impression rather than a permanent scar.
Despite what a terrible year 2020 has been, I’m thankful that I got a chance to strengthen my relationships with my family and friends…even connect with long lost ones. It helped me to lean on them for support and I learned that regardless of what life throws at you or what obstacles arise, if we face it together…together we will persevere.
It’s been awhile since I stopped and took time to reflect on the things happening in my life. Since this COVID-19 chaos, everything has been up in the air and all my daily routines have been thrown out of whack. But my optimistic trait has me seeing a positive side to all of this. Having this pandemic happen has given me the opportunity to actually stop my life and take into account all the good things that are around me. I am fortunate to be a lot closer with my family, both in proximity and in relationships. I value life more, regardless of all the obstacles that are in my way. I’m appreciative of being able to stop and take notice of nature and how it continues to progress regardless of what goes on in my life. And most of all, I’m just happy to be here in this moment, knowing that I have had good memories despite all of the negative aspects associated with this virus. This will pass because there cannot be darkness without light. So I continue to have hope and treasure every breath I take.
When there is darkness and stagnation in front of you… go straight When life causes extreme hardships… go straight When trouble overwhelms you… go straight When your path becomes hazy and unclear… go straight When obstacles become too difficult to manage… go straight The course you take must never waver Always have faith and never falter Forge onwards to greater heights so that your dreams and goals may come to fruition and then and only then will everything turn out better If you just… go straight
Never give up even in the face of failure, make it happen You have the strength to persevere, despite all odds Your life is precious, and you have so much to contribute in this world “There is hope!” So breathe, take that first step, and always move forward.
Don’t wish for things to happen, make it so Don’t be afraid of the outcome, have faith Don’t sell yourself short, you are worthy Cast aside all doubt, challenge yourself to be great In doing so, you open up your world to infinite possibilities where dreams become reality It all starts with you, your journey begins when you simply say, “I can!”
