“My scars remind me that I did indeed survive my deepest wounds. That in itself is an accomplishment. And they bring to mind something else, too. They remind me that the damage life has inflicted on me has, in many places, left me stronger and more resilient. What hurt me in the past has actually made me better equipped to face the present.” – Steve Goodier
No one can push you through life except you. Life will beat the daylights out of you and drop you into the garbage of yesterday without a second glance.
This is where opportunity lies.
You can do anything you want if you’re willing to stay focused and reset your position as the world spins into the next day. The only requirement of life is that you can’t give up. You push through heartache that hurts so bad, you feel a pain in your chest. A longing soul that searches too long without knowing it’s strength can search until the end of time and never find its way when it doesn’t know who they are and what they want.
But this also comes from surrounding yourself with people that never give up on you. They cheer you on and guard you when danger is ahead; not because you need it but because that’s what a friend does. Just as you’d do for them.
But if you’re lacking that savior you’re seeking, put on your boots and hold the frame up yourself. It’s your life, it’s your power and you’ve had it all along.
