Hard Days


I feel as though I’m either on the verge of a panic attack, joy, tears, or greatness.

That’s the thing about hard days — they’re bipolar.

Hard days come and go in an instant.

We all experience hard days —

that’s life, and an essential part of growth.

Yet, what separates those who are brilliant, and those who are not (yet),

are the ones who keep pursuing, despite setbacks.

They’re relentless.

Things will work out, if you give space for them to.

Keep Pursing — despite setbacks.

Hard day’s forge brilliance.

Leave space for what you want.
