Many of us had new year resolutions and set goals to achieve this year, but just how many steps back have you taken from those goals already. Do you even still remember them? Or have you simply given up on them? These are basically the questions I’ve been asking myself the past couple of days.
It’s actually depressing how life just swoops in and snatches our dreams and aspirations from us – but that’s only if we let it! Just thinking about how frustrating it has been for me to keep up with my goals while I had to face some pretty tough moments, I feel victorious to be able to pick up myself and keep going forward!
Personally, I refuse to think of how many steps back I have taken. I simply want to celebrate the fact that I am still here, still moving forward, and still VERY determined to reach my goals and achieve my dream.
This year I have come so close to giving up many times already, and just dealing with the many curves life has thrown at me. I’ve told myself “What’s the point of even trying” many times – and almost believed it.
But in the end, what is important is that I didn’t quit when I thought I would. So DO NOT GIVE UP! Despite all the discouragement, and ‘reality’ trying to force its way down your throat. If you remember what you wanted for your life in the first place, and why you wanted it. If you are even just still alive, then anything is possible – So Get Back Up, Dust Yourself Off and Stay on Track!
So I’ll like to celebrate the fact that I am still in the race, and as determined as ever to keep on going! Today is a day to celebrate VICTORY! (Not just victory over death – as Christians), but also victory over life’s trials and all its lemons!
