So many of us are lost in this life. Not because we have to be, but because when we put forth the half efforts that we do to transform our lives we give up.
My husband gave me the best compliment when he asked me, "Do you ever give up?"
That made me feel triumphant. I knew I had reached him whether it benefited him or not. He knew I didn't give up on him or anything else in my life. So many of us can't make others see who we are because we don't let ourselves see it either. I spent the last 26 years really working on me and it paid off in the long run.
So many of us want others to make us happy. We think by getting married and having kids that everything will fall into place. It does, years after you have built the foundation and have built upon it. Having been in a long-term relationship I can truly say things did get better with time.
If you want things in your life to be different, you have to make it happen. So many of us forget this.
