I’ve sat on the floor of my bedroom and wondered why I’m not where I want to be in life. I’ve questioned my purpose. I’ve wondered how I’ll ever make it, how I’ll ever be what I dream to be, how I’ll ever survive. I’ve been there. Whenever I travel in Europe my heart skips a beat as the cold breeze touches my skin. I knew deep down my heart I want to stay…
I want to stay….. To find myself, my purpose and my inner strength as I go on with my journey in life.
I know you have too.
You’re probably sitting there right now doubting the journey you’re on, wondering if it’s even the right one or whether the sacrifices you’re making in life to get where you want to be are worth it.
For me, just stop worrying about failing or making mistakes. Start focusing on what it will feel like to know you could have tried and succeeded but didn’t.

As cliché as it sounds, when you stop worrying about what you can’t control, you have time to change the things you can control, and that makes a world of a difference.
Sometimes we are so focused on the transgressions of yesterday or the worries of tomorrow that we don’t stop to focus on the beauty that is today. If we are always looking ahead or looking back, we will never see what we have right beside us. It’s necessary to let yourself live just one day at a time – just today. Just right here, right now.

On your hardest days, when you feel like you can’t continue, remember that you’ve already made it through 100% of your hard days and you’re likely to make it through this one too.
