I’ve decided to join Holley Gerth for a weekly cup of Coffee for Your Heart. It’s a weekly dose of encouragement, from my heart to yours, to help get you, my lovely readers, over that mid-week hump. I’m not a coffee drinker but I love a good cup of tea so you can enjoy coffee and I will enjoy tea 🙂
As we start 2014, the year ripe with possibility and adventure, I want you to know that you can do this!
I know it can feel daunting, at times, to keep moving forward in life. Whether you are chasing a lifelong dream, working to maintain a dream, or simply living life, sometimes it gets hard and giving up feels like the best thing to do. But nothing worth having, comes without a little bit (okay a lotta bit) of hard work.
But the hard work doesn’t mean it’s not the right path for you. Instead, the hard work is there to show you what you are made of and I am here to tell you that you are made up of stronger stuff that you might realize.
So don’t you quit!
It can get as hard as it wants but giving up is not an option. Why? Because YOU GOT THIS!!
Don’t You Quit by Anonymous
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won if he’d stuck it out.
Don’t give up, though the pace seems slow –
You may succeed with another blow.
Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man;
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor’s cup,
And he learned too late, when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out –
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are –
It may be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit –
It’s when things seem worst that you mustn’t quit.
