Sometimes, we can be so buried in our troubles, we think we’re on a path to nowhere.

Not true. You’re going somewhere. If it feels like nowhere, it’s only because you are looking down.


If you don’t see your life as a journey, you will miss the scenery – the small, seemingly insignificant treasures that aren’t always noticed when we’re discouraged. But those things are there to capture our attention and make us realize life is worth living.

No one is denying the way you feel right at this moment. But on the horizon, beyond the struggle, is scenery waiting for you to explore.

It’s not an illusion. You have to believe it’s there.

And why wouldn’t you? Have you disqualified yourself?

Decide today to reject that mindset and inspire yourself with what might be.  Because even though it can get really bad .. it can get really good, too.

Maneuver around the obstacles, learn about yourself, and look forward with expectation. Your significance is not based on your circumstances. Let the rain fall where it may and make you sparkle.

You may have tried to do everything right. But despite your hard work, you are gripped with despair, disappointment, and discouragement.

Everything can change tomorrow.

Brick walls are penetrable.
