Looking back on that original post I'm amazed at what I have achieved. I am typically so hard on myself all the time about not getting to all of the goals I have made for myself that I lose sight of all the things I have done in the past. Check out the goals above lets see what I can cross off

Never give up on any of your goals because if you lose faith in them you could be missing out just when the opportunity presents itself to you. I can never give up that's the bottom line. I don't have a choice in the matter, giving up has never been an option. I've never had the luxury of simply not trying anymore and I see the blessing within that as well.
I see that through hard situations it is building my endurance, carving and shaping a better me to come out on the other side so that I'm ready to appreciate and put in the necessary work to my life. I may not have accomplished all of what I wanted in this immediate time, but I will eventually and I'm proud I haven't given up. I've played my cards the best way I specifically can. Reflecting on all the good that you've done is just the necessary motivation to do more, at least for me it is.
