If you needed any reassurance, you’re going to make it happen. Dreams take time, and growing pains are part of the process. You can walk, take a step back, move forward once more, and step back again. Be patient with yourself. Be forgiving to your legs.
The tides move up and down the shore with ease and rhythm. No one ever condemns them for going low after a high. It’s the process of movement. It’s as simple and instinctive to them as breathing.
We torture ourselves over hangnails and missed deadlines and teeny tiny mistakes, not using the same energy to feel proud when we have done well. You have purpose and light, something good and special about you. You need not be upset about sinking lower. Sometimes, it takes a deeper dig to make history when you climb out.
