I’m just going to keep reminding myself of this over and over again until I get where I’m going. Truthfully, 2018 was just a bad year for me and my family as a whole. It taught me hurtful lessons that I wasn’t sure we’d ever benefit from, but now I get it, it made me strong. Because when I look back on the last 8 months of 2019, we have faced many struggles, probably more so than last year. But it’s been good. Better.
We’ve worked together in ways that I never thought we would. We’ve figured things out, little by little, and sorted out where we’re going. The only thing that’s changed is my mindset... and I know we’re close to reaching our goals because it always gets the hardest right before it gets good. That’s where the lessons lie. This stage of our life is the steepest part of the “mountain” and we have to keep climbing to get to the top, otherwise we’ll roll right back down to the bottom where we started.
