Courage

There is a tree I visit..... a tree that fills me with optimism. A tree that confounds and inspires. It is a beautiful example of the tenacity of life. It prevails given the tiniest opportunity.This tree is a living testament to strength and determination.
No matter where we stand on the spectrum of our time here, we are stronger than we realize. 
Everyone wants to feel safe. Nobody wants to be scared. In our lives there will always be times when we need to dig deep to discover what we are capable of. “Courage is not having the strength to go on; it is going on when you don't have the strength.” -Theodore Roosevelt
So, hold on.....when you feel you cannot hang on a minute longer......you can. xo
“If you meet the darkest moment of life, strive valiantly through it with courage and never retreat, for you shall surely meet light afterwards. If you meet the muddy stream of life, swim across it with tenacity to the very end for there is a clearer stream that shall wash your dirt away afterwards. If people reject you in the mid of the arduous race of life, dare to smile and move on for there are people who await you to embrace you in the end” - Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
