Even on days when you struggle to see why,
Remember that something has carried you this far,
And you continue to show up,
Despite the unknowns.
Even when persistence looks a lot like giving up,
To open the curtains and let the sunlight in.
Sometimes the obstacles seem insurmountable,
Yet you face another day,
To continue to fight a war,
Where the enemies’ strategy is to convince you
That the battle isn’t happening.
You might loose some battles,
But you will learn.
Persistence doesn’t mean the absence of failure,
But rather our willingness to rise again in spite of it.
progress isn’t linear,
But a soft voice urging you onwards.
Hope doesn’t exist without fear,
But is a tool we use to conquer it.
