“Sometimes it takes a good fall to really know where you stand.”-Hayley Williams

We can make all the plans we want but life will still drop some stumbling blocks in our path that can veer us off course.

You have to be ready to switch lanes when that time comes.

So many life events can set us back. Illness, death, and financial blunders are just a few of the hurdles that can stop us in our tracks.

We have to be ready. Some things you can never fully prepare for, even when you know they are coming.

When someone close to you dies it’s like being sucker-punched and it can take some time to get back up. But the power lies in knowing that you will get back up.

We have great hopes for this new year. It’s an exciting time to be alive. Remember, some days will be incredibly wonderful and some days will be challenging.

No matter how strong a punch life hits you with remember you will recover. You will get back up and begin again.
