Today, I was going through some old notebooks and came across a quote
I had written a while ago. It was said by one of my favourite characters from the Divergent Series about pushing through the hard times.
‘There are many ways to be brave in this world. Sometimes bravery involves laying down your life for something bigger than yourself, or for someone else. Sometimes it involves giving up everything you have ever known, or everyone you have ever loved, for the sake of something greater.
But sometimes it doesn’t.
Sometimes it is nothing more than gritting your teeth through the pain, and the work of every day, the slow walk toward a better life.
that is the sort of bravery I must have now’.
I think being surrounded by little sayings or quotes is a great way to stay inspired and to keep your head in the game. There are always going to be people out there that will try to steal your dreams or discourage you. But having these things around and being able to encourage yourself is so important.
* I’m still not quite sure how to end these things. Give me some time and I should be able to come up with something cool.
