Life can be so hard sometimes. It can emotionally take a toll on us.
Today I was hit with some disappointing news. I got to be honest, I can take things a little too emotionally, so I definitely cried today. BUT……I am going to make the choice to persevere. Yes, I am upset, and hurt. Did things go how I wanted them to? No. Am I going to stop trying because of a set back? No. A set back is a detour, a pause, an opportunity in disguise urging us to put in more work to succeed.
That’s what I’m going to do. In life, we can’t just quit because things didn’t work the first time. I definitely do not want to be a person who just quits when things get tough. I can almost here the theme song to Rocky right now, pumping me up, cheering me on. Yes, it’s not easy to get past a disappointing life event. But what’s the alternative? Quit, not try again? I don’t want to be that person. I will persevere.
