Wisdom from a tough lady. :) Life isn't easy or simple. No matter how much you pretend it is. People come up with many excuses to not do the work. Unfortunately, more people ever day have real reasons not to move forward. *Society* today get's in the way of real progress. The World is stuck in reverse.
Even as the closed doors and rejections seem more prevalent than the new opportunities you’d like to see, even as you’re seeking to readjust your thinking, remember that there is an abundant need in this world for your contributions to the kingdom... your thoughts and words and artistic expressions... your exact brand of beautiful. Choose to live loved while you’re in the middle of the journey, and know that what He has in mind for you is so much more than you imagine. - Lysa TerKeurst
