don't give up your dreams

Remember, there's a difference between giving up and taking a break.
Have the courage to pursue what ever your dreams may be. Don’t be intimidated by how big they are or how impossible they may seem; you just have to go for it. Don’t worry, you’ve got this.

Be resilient. Try again. And again. When things don’t go as planned, make a new plan. Know your strengths. Understand your weaknesses. You know what you are and what you aren’t. Use that knowledge to assess your situation. Just try again. When you fall down or come up short, know that isn’t the end of you or your journey. You can do anything. You can get through anything.

Everyone has their own goals and aspirations. Regardless of what they are or what other people say, we must pursue them with a burning passion. Whether it’s art, cooking, fitness, or what ever it may be, go after it. Don’t ever EVER give up.

Never give up on a dream because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway.

I always thought it was the saddest and most devastating ending. How you could have these enormous dreams that never get met. How without knowing it you could just make yourself smaller over time. I don’t want that to happen to me.
