Stay positive no matter what

According to Tennis magazine, "Recovery takes longer than you expect. Progress isn't linear, it accelerates and stalls."

Recovery is something we all go through, some of us recover from injuries and heartache. Others recover from the scarring that life can bring. No matter who are, you have faced something freaky. Can I just say you are incredible? Everything you face strengthens your resolve.

Progress means opening your eyes and figuring out what you really need. It's the ability to carry on with patience and confidence. To progress means that you encourage yourself. You stay positive, no matter what obstacle is ahead of you. Remember this dream of yours is going to change lives.

Oh, I firmly believe EVERYTHING takes longer than you expect. Except losing muscle tone.

I like the idea that progress is the ability to carry on with patience and confidence.

I especially like the part about figuring out what we need and encouraging ourselves, no matter what. So many of us live our lives according to the expectations of others, real or perceived. It takes real bravery to figure out what really makes you happy and recognize what you alone can give the world.
