Don't Give Up

Perseverance can be a blessing and a curse.  It would be accurate to say that, at times, I don't know when to quit.  Then again, I always know that I've given something my all and in doing that I have developed strength and resilience that I may not have otherwise.

I still don't know when to quit but I have learned that sometimes I need to take a break or adjust my plans or re-evaluate my goals or let go of certain expectations.  I've learned that not giving up doesn't mean banging your head against a brick wall or forging ahead to the point of exhaustion.  Sometimes not giving up is giving up on things working out just like you wanted them to or with who you wanted them to work out with.  Sometimes not giving up is giving up just for the night and trying again the next day.

But not giving up is always not giving up on yourself and what you love.

If you give up in the middle of your struggle
You will never know what it is like to fly
