To anyone experiencing tough times professionally or personally – please just keep going.

No matter how stuck you feel, no matter how bad things are right now, no matter how many days you’ve spent wishing things were different, you won’t feel this way forever. Just keep going.

Things really do get better. You have an opportunity to rebuild your life. You know that saying what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger? It’s true. I’m proof of it, and I know there are many other people out there who are as well.

The most important thing is to take care of yourself and focus on you. Put one foot in front of the other.

Sometimes things don’t happen for a reason. Sometimes bad things happen to good people. Sometimes there is no sense in the nonsense.

But life will give you moments that are crystal clear that will bring you to an understanding of why things happened the way they did. Sometimes it’s a person, an experience, a realization, a change – sometimes it’s all of these.

No matter what you’ve walked through, you deserve happiness. Don’t settle for anything less. Be strong. Things have a way of working out.
