perserverance

Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real.. it is possible.. it’s yours.

Please, Baby, Please

A toddler’s antics keep his mother busy as she tries to feed him, watch him on the playground, give him a bath, and put him to bed.

Please, Puppy, Please

Watch two toddlers try to take care of a puppy who has no plans of letting up.

Giant Steps to Change the World

Pursuing one’s own path in life takes courage, strength, and perseverance, as demonstrated by such inspirational leaders as Barack Obama, Albert Einstein, and Muhammad Ali.

I spend a lot of my time being scared. Scared of really stupid stuff. I panic about calling people on the phone, asking for help in shops, being picked on for answers in class. And I’m working on it, I really am.

I understand that you don’t get it. Very few people do. But it’d mean the world to me if you stuck with me through it. I know it’s a lot to ask, but I’ve never met anyone who makes me feel like this. No one else has ever made me feel so determined to get better.

I will get better, I know it. And I want you to be around to see it.
