“Square your shoulders to the world, be not the kind to quit; It’s not the load that weighs you down, but the way you carry it.” – Anonymous
I love how my friends reach out to me now and give me quotes to use that really mean a lot to them. It’s funny to see how the quotes that relate to their lives and situations are the same ones that I can relate to, that we ALL can relate to. This quote is especially powerful.
I’d be lying if I said there weren’t some days I sat here and thought to myself, ‘I just can’t do it.’ There are some days where every thing seems to be too much. When times are easy and good, they’re REALLY easy and good; and when times are tough, they seem to be REALLY tough! But, as this quote says, it’s not what hinders you but how you handle it. All things shall pass, you just have to figure out how to work through your problems step by step, one day at a time. Don’t let your struggles define you, figure out how to face and defeat them. Quitting isn’t an option.
Look at some of the things that are bringing you down right now and reevaluate how you ‘carry them,’ how you are dealing with them. If what you’re doing doesn’t currently seem to be working, try something else. But face them, don’t act like they don’t exist!
