Wisdom Wednesday

You have to struggle no matter where you are to get to where you’re going.

Michelle Rodriguez

I feel like I’ve struggled my whole life.  With life, love, school, careers .. every milestone I have reached this far in life, I struggled with.  Then to reach the next milestone, I struggled again.

When I see quotes like the one from Michelle, it makes me feel grateful to have overcome a lot of struggles and, weirdly enough, grateful to have many more struggles to come because it’ll only lead me to the next milestone in life.

This year is coming to an end and I know, the older I get, I’ll find more obstacles thrown at me – probably each one more difficult than the last.  I see that last line I just typed and, hell yeah, it scares me quite a bit.  However, the support system I have gets me through anything, and has gotten me through everything.  As scary as it’s going to be (and as it has already been), this ride is just going to get better with every thrill.

The struggle is real, but be thankful that you’ve been given the chance to conquer them.
