There was no blog posts last week, for good reason — I was on vacation. I spent last week in California with my family. I had the time of my life, and now that I’m back home the celebration still continues because… Yesterday (September 26) was my birthday!
Last year, I wrote this blog post: “25 Things I’ve Learned in 25 Years” and now that I’m a year older (and hopefully another year wiser), I wanted to add to that list.
26. Never, never, NEVER give up
We all reach times where giving up seems like the only option. If we gave up each time we wanted to, how would we learn or grow? More often than not, there’s a miracle waiting at the end of a tough season. Never give up. Keep going, keep fighting. Don’t miss the miracle.
This past year has been a whirlwind, but I’m happy to say that I’m proud of where I am in my life. There were so many times where I believed that I wouldn’t make it out of whatever hard times I was faced with, where I was convinced that there was nothing ahead. I was close to giving up, to leave behind all that I’ve worked for because it was too hard — but I kept going. If I didn’t keep moving forward, I wouldn’t have reached my miracle.
No matter what you’re going through, keep going. Your miracle is waiting for you.
