On Day 18 of 30 Days of Tessism gratitude grows from within.
Gratitude: Today I am grateful for the strength to keep moving forward no matter how many times I stumble or get knocked down. Theoretically, failure is a very necessary step toward success. The faster you fail, the sooner you can learn your lesson and move onto success. The only problem is that failure just doesn’t feel good. Well at least not to me. Maybe that’s something I should work on.
It hurts and many times, I’d rather just retreat somewhere and never have to deal with it again. Yet somewhere, the strength bubbles up in me to keep at it in spite of the discomfort. I am clear this is not all self-generated but comes equally from the support of people who truly believe in me. I am grateful for all these things that converge to keep me pushing past “nos” and “impossibles” to create this extraordinary life.
