Keep going

Who would have guessed it?  Really.  Who would have thought that you would go back to school to finish that degree?  Who knew you were going to open up your own business?  Who knew I was going to retire from the military after so many years?  We both did.

We both knew that life was more than the comfort zones we incubated ourselves in.  We knew the constant pain of heartache and hopelessness.  When we felt like giving up and allowing our detractors to have the last word.  Saying they knew we would fail.

That was last year. That was the past.  We decided that we didn’t want to keep making the same mistakes and not learning the lesson.  We decided that we had to keep going and that nothing is achieved over night.

Today is Friday. One year later and we are not the same person at all.  You feel it and I do, too. We look back at last year this time and know we were on the right track.  But the job is not done.  Relish in your accomplishments for a few minutes.

Now let’s get back to work. We have a legacy to build.
