In any fight for something truly worthwhile there is that moment where challenge arises, fear emerges; you are caught off guard and take a big shot against. You fall down, battled, wounded, and a little voice whispers it was a good fight but now it is over, time to pick up the pieces, fix your wounds and cut your losses. But you refuse because there is still an ember burning inside you telling you to not give in, not give up, just push forward, keep pushing forward and break through no matter how strong the resistance. The decision to not break in these moments defines us, it allow us to grow and move closer to our goal if we are willing to sacrifice everything we are for everything we will become.
… Believe this is the year. Believe this is our time. Never lose hope.
