No matter where you are in life, celebrate it. It's either a product of your growth or a place that will help you grow. Every season serves a purpose; learn to appreciate wherever you are on your journey. - The truth is, we are all works in progress. As you strive toward your goals, remember that success is all about continued progress, not immediate perfection. You might not be exactly where you want to be yet but as long as you're moving forward, that's what's important.
One of The Best Feelings is Knowing That You Are Appreciated
Be proud of how far you've come. Some people have a tendency to want to be around to reap the rewards of your hard work without ever lifting a finger to help you get there. Some people will turn a blind eye to your struggles and pretend you don't exist until better times arrive. Then they're your best friend. Where were they during your struggles? What was their response when you asked/needed help? Don't fret yourself though...in the end you've learned many lessons. One of which is that…
"You have been doubted, hated, talked about, made fun of, hurt, lied to, broken, and at your wits end. With that being said, I commend you for the fact that you are still standing. Your courage speaks volumes. I know your struggle & the pain you've endured. You are more than a conqueror. Nothing can keep you down & no one can steal your joy. Don't give up, continue to stand tall & love yourself first. You are appreciated. ~ Anonymous
