To the girl that's got a long way to go until you feel like you made it...
I just wanna say I feel you on a spiritual level.
Sometimes the mountain I am climbing seems impossible, overwhelming, exhausting & I think I made the wrong choice. But then I remember it's always a choice, isn’t it?!? Starting with how I think about my journey.
I can call this “intermediate” stage exhausting & hard -or- I can choose to call it exciting & invigorating.
I can let it all wear me down & intimidate me or I can use it to grow & strengthen me.
Here’s the deal.
Instant results are easy
Quitting is easy but neither of these will make you proud.
I think it’s easy to forgot this, that the “in-between” part of the journey is necessary too.
So, if you are in a similar scenario where you are working hard to achieve something and you feel like quitting because it’s taking too long, don’t!
Maybe all the hard work, challenges, learning & failures are necessary to be become the person we need to become to qualify us for that next part of our story.
& real talk...
even though I write this and believe it , living it is a whole different animal. That’s why I share it here from time to time because I don’t want to forget this part of my story. And maybe, just maybe, someone out there will be inspired too.
