The biggest thing that's stopping you is the belief that something is stopping you.

Every change is easier said than done. You've got now and from now, on. That's it, but that's a lot.

If your mind has been on repeat that there's no point in even trying then it's going to take some extra effort to change that thinking.

There is a point in trying and that point is to make the rest of your life better than the current course it's headed on. Even if you're tired...Nothing is more energizing than working towards something amazing, and that something amazing is your life.

Make it so.

Get Sowing

Focus more on the good things you are (or can be) doing and less on the bad things that others seem to be getting away with.

It's a long road ahead. Yours has no slope so you seem to be moving slower, but theirs is a big hill with a sign at the top that says, "dead end."

It'll happen. You'll see. Just don't miss your life in the meantime.

You've got great places to go and you can only reap what you sow.

So get sowing.

Every person from your past

Every person from your past lives as a shadow in your mind. 
Good or bad, they all helped you write the story of your life 
and shaped the person you are today.

Well, if it makes you feel any better...

Have you ever told someone about something bad or difficult that you are going through and without skipping a beat, they say, "Well, if it makes you feel any better..." and then tell you something really awful that their neighbor or cousin or someone else is going through?

The short answer is, "No!" it doesn't make you feel better at all.

They're trying to make you appreciate what you have by telling you about someone else who has worse things going on but their method is flawed.

You get through your pain with help and encouragement, not by having it dismissed as not being so bad compared to someone else.
