We all make mistakes, have struggles, and even regret things in our past. But you are not your mistakes, you are not your struggles, and you are here NOW with the power to shape your day and your future.
— Steve Maraboli
The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you. You just got to find the ones worth suffering for.
Being happy doesn't mean that everything is perfect. It means that you've decided to look beyond the imperfections.
What you focus on the longest, becomes the strongest, good or bad!
Until the pain of staying the same becomes more acute than the pain of change, nothing happens. We simply maintain the status quo and we convince ourselves that playing it safe is safe. The greatest risk is taking no risks at all.
~From the book Chase The Lion by Mark Batterson
