A couple of quotations to inspire me to press on in the journey...

"Endure... Go through the darkness and come out the other side. When you think you can't stand another minute of this, know that you can. When you think you won't make it through another day, know that you will. When you can't take another moment of the pain and the fear and the feelings of hopelessness, take another moment anyway. Endure the heartache and come out heartstrong. Endure the tremors and the grief and the isolation and come out sturdy and robust and ready for another round. Like a diamond in the making, endure the heat and the pressure of what seems like eternity, and emerge with a new brilliance and clarity. When you think you've come to your end, dig deep and endure."

~ Rachel Snyder

"How do you make it through? You take it one day at a time. You face your fears. You keep your promises. You deal directly with your challenges. You get the best possible help and care. You turn to caring, positive people you know will be there for you.

You believe. You take steps to change what needs changing. You talk it over. You laugh. You go ahead and cry. You pray. You stay involved. You live the best life you can today. And when tomorrow comes, you do it all over again.

You hang in there. You hold on tight to your hope. You never let go. You know, deep down inside, what a special person you are. And no matter what comes along, you never forget it. You stay strong. You keep the faith. And you make room for the brighter day that, someday soon, is going to shine so much serenity back into your life."
