Anything 2018 Throws At You, You Will Survive

This is you, at the start of a brilliant new year and guess what, with the new year come a whole new set of challenges. All those new years resolutions are just the start, it’s making them happen that will end up costing sacrifice and strength and other things you cannot even imagine. If this isn’t daunting enough you will bring with you some of the ongoing challenges you are facing with your health, with your job, with other things which just don’t go away because it is a new year.

Here’s the good news though. You can survive anything because you are forged by survival. Everything that makes you the you that you are today was made by survival and heartache and pain and that was all the years which have past. Since you have survived every year, all the terrible things, and made life work by depending on just yourself, you should know, you will survive this one too. In fact, this is the year you will thrive because you already know how strong you are.

Take this year and use it for your survival. Find your bliss. Run through the hardships and the heartache and find the way you will change the world, whether big or small. Find more people to love and lose more people along the way. Face massive heartaches and the greatest moments of your entire life. This is the year when you can breeze through all of that knowing this one, simple fact: I have survived before and I will survive again.

This is the year you change the world and you break out. This is the year you gain your freedom. This is the year you do not let anything or anyone stop you. This is it. Now take your first step forward into that new year.
