Keep working on it

You’re not perfect, but you’re getting better. Keep working on it.

You’ve had some setbacks, been disappointed by other people in your life, and sometimes have disappointed yourself. Yet you’ve learned from it all, you’ve become stronger and more determined.

Success doesn’t happen in a straight, unbroken line. Those efforts along the way that don’t work out actually do work out in the big picture.

The obstacles, false starts, setbacks and wrong turns add richness to the journey. They let you know how far you’ve come and give value to whatever you achieve.

You’re a more experienced, more resilient person than you were a couple of years ago. There’s much good you can do with that strength you’ve recently earned.

Though it hasn’t been easy, your trajectory has persistently worked its way upward. Remember why you’re doing what you do, and keep up the good work.
