I’m not perfect, I don’t claim to be. I’m actually so far from it, it hurts sometimes. It hurts me and it hurts others. But I will not let my imperfectness stop me, because what use is it to strive for something that does not exist? Instead, I choose to use those flaws in my character, my wrong decisions, my weakness, my shame and my hurts, to be motivation to carry on. I choose to be vulnerable about the things that make me feel less than, to serve as an encouragement to others.
The most important challenge you will face in life is the fight to stay in the game, to pick your head up when it hangs in defeat, to raise your hands in victory when you are surrounded by failures.
Friends, I’m here... I see you pushing through blood, sweat and tears. I feel your broken heart and your crushed spirit. I hear your sobs as tears fall while you’re alone and in that place of uncertainty. And I know... I know... but you are strong, you are courageous, you have a purpose, and you are an inspiration to people you have yet to meet. Carry on warriors.
