Things To Remember

When your world is cracking and you are running out of duct tape, it's time to remember the important things in life...

You are an amazing person.

Okay, okay, sounds totally cheesy, but keep in mind that you are the person who set out with nothing more than a dream, and shaped the world around you into something spectacular. You left everything you had ever known, at the drop of a hat, to go somewhere new, simply because you felt the winds of Fate pulling you in that direction. You worked hard, accomplished something great, and then, when Fate pulled again, you followed without question. You worked even harder this time, and accomplished a feat far grander than anything you could have ever imagined. It was a perfect crystal of beauty, imagination, and the synthesis of so many dreams. It may have been a joint effort to create this beautiful thing, but it was
your ambition & imagination, your endless energy & hard work, and your sheer pig-headed stubbornness that got you there. Like most things in life, this crystal had a jagged edge of pain and sacrifice, but you felt the price of that was worth it for the joy of the creation.

In reality, there is always pain in creation.

And now, as if
achieving the dream wasn't reward enough, you have managed to continue to reach new goals and heights of accomplishment with each passing year. So many markers and things to be proud of - don't lose sight of that simply because there is so much background noise. You have so much to be thankful for, and so much to be proud of.

And at the end of it all, you have learned something valuable about yourself.
