Some words of wisdom from me to you, and possibly back to me in the future.
Stop giving up. I mean, just stop. Finish what you start. Give it your all.
Am I saying you’ll never fail? No way. Failure is inevitable, and mistakes will happen, but I believe that mistakes aren’t mistakes and failure is only fatal if you come out learning nothing, and not changing a thing.
I’ve heard that life is not a sprint, it’s more of a marathon, but I see it more like 752 marathons in a row. You think you can’t, but you can. You have been training for this your whole life, because everything you learn has its place and has a lesson to teach. Each lesson takes you to the next place, the next adventure, the next fall-flat-on-your-face moment. And so what you fell? So what you have to start over? At least you have that chance. I know of a few parents this year who are having to celebrate Thanksgiving without their children. Violence took them. Oppression took them. A system that disregards them took them.
And you are still here.
Don’t give up. Fall and get up. Try and practice love until you get it right. Learn from the lessons that come. Make it right when you are
wrong. Be grateful. And never, never give up.
