Truth be told, I’ve always been a bit of a ‘giver-upper’, as much as this pains me to admit. I’m blaming my genes because my Dad is the exact same, although we all know that it’s a poor excuse, soz Dad.

It’s not that I lack enthusiasm, at the beginning I have bounds of it to spare, and I get so excited about a new challenge or goal  I can’t sleep! But it’s when it doesn’t go to plan is where I start to struggle.

I can easily fall at the first hurdle, and not want to get back up and try again. It’s a lesson I’m constantly learning that perservance pays off, and if you want it, you sure have to work for it. They say nothing worth having comes easy, and maybe that’s true. Plus the reward is always sweeter after you know you really, really deserve it.

We all need reminders to not give up, so I’m using this blog post to give you your reminder.

You know how satisfying it is when you finally achieve something that has taken weeks, months, even years? Remember that feeling and know that it will happen again for you.

If we got everything we wanted handed to us on a plate, maybe we would never learn what we need to, or find our passion and resilience for what makes our hearts flutter.

Life is a journey, and one which constantly pushes us to our limits, and shows us who we really are, and who we could be if we didn’t let anything get in our way.

Even when the challenges we face seem tougher than we ever expected, hang in there. You’ve got this, I’m with you all the way.

Don’t ever give up.

You can do it.

    I love this, I’d say I’m somewhere in between depending on what mood I’m in – I can easily give up at the first hurdle if I’m feeling down and deflated then other times I don’t let it phase me and try again!

  • Definitely agree with this xx

  • Aww loved this post! It is definitely true! I thought I would never pass my driving test when I was younger but I did and it was even more rewarding when it happened! xx

  • Yes!! I wish all this for you, too. You can do it, you are worth it <3

  • Shannon

    I could not agree more! It can be so hard sometimes to persevere, but you’re right we shouldn’t give up on our goals and dreams. I definitely needed to hear this so thank you!

  • I feel exactly like this with my Driving lessons at the moment – I’m persevering as much as I can to get it all out of the way 🙂

  • Lovely post as always gal and one I needed to read today! Generally I’m not someone who gives up easily or quickly at all, but you’re right, when things seem tougher than you expected it can be tempting and that’s when it gets me. We can do it xxx
