Keep on going

Sometimes we all hit walls, whether it's in our writing, our work, our education, or our personal lives. We may come up against a decision we don't want to face, we may start regretting a decision we made, or we may feel like our lives are spiraling out of control. At times like these, it's good to remember we are not alone. Here are a few quotes that I've found inspiring and encouraging both in my writing and in my life: 

"Only when we are no longer afraid do we begin to live."
-Dorothy Thompson

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do."
-Mark Twain

"To live in this world you must be able to do three things: to love what is mortal; to hold it against your bones knowing your own life depends on it; and, when the time comes to let it go, to let it go."
-Mary Oliver

"I think somehow we learn who we really are and then live with that decision."
-Eleanor Roosevelt

"Your work is to discover your world and then, with all your heart, give yourself to it."

"Believe that life is worth living and your belief will help create the fact."
- William James

"You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream."
- C. S. Lewis

"Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase."
- Martin Luther King Jr.
Any others you would like to share?
