You needed to get knocked down, hard, to know how capable you were of getting back up.
Every single person has a story to tell. Whether we’ve come from humble beginnings, fallen down, lost our way, struggled with debt, or faced the unbearable—we all carry baggage from our past—and we all find a way to fight through, to push on.
We spend so much time getting ready for this future, stressing over what hasn’t happened, and setting plans for what’s next that we forget to live in the moment. We forget to celebrate how far we’ve come. We forget that life isn’t always going to unfold how we want it to—but maybe that’s the most beautiful part.
