Never Giving UP

Be not afraid of going slowly; be afraid only of standing still.

Never giving up

Do you ever get frustrated because things are moving too slowly in your life? Many people don't realize that building a foundation for success does not happen overnight. It is a slow process in which you are constantly working and learning. After all, that foundation must remain strong, even in times of failure or crisis. This takes time! You may have to remind yourself that "failing" is only failure if you quit; otherwise it's a learning opportunity. So don't worry if your life seems to be moving in slow motion. Concentrate on building a solid foundation and learning from your back steps.

I've been through a lot in the last 2 years and I'm still here, hanging in there. It's been a long recovery and a lot of emotional trauama with friends passing away but I will never give up. I will keep working at it, until the weight comes off and I'm healthier for it. I know it's a struggle, but I'll keep going.
