Are you having a bad day? Have you hit your limit? Are you ready to throw the towel in and just give up? Take your hand and place it over your heart. Feel that? That’s your purpose; you woke up breathing this morning for a reason. Do Not Give Up.
We have all heard that old saying, “when there’s a will there’s a way”. I know right now that’s not what you want to hear. I get that getting up and putting on that smile each and every day is almost more than you can handle. I understand.
Life is not going to be easy; if it was would it really be worth it? Live your life: the good and the bad. With every up and down on the roller-coaster of life, you will learn lessons that will make you stronger. One of the hardest decisions you will ever face is deciding if you should give up or give it one more try. I promise you – if you pick yourself and try again, one day – maybe not today or tomorrow or even within the week, but one day – things will start to get better.
Here’s what I want you to do. The minute you think of giving up, think of the reason you held on so long. Why? What? How? Answer those questions for yourself and then ask yourself honestly why suddenly you do not need to hold on for these things. I think you’ll start to see how important it is to you that you do not give up. I know it is very important to me.
