FIND A WAY.
If you want something bad enough, go out and get it. Keep working at it. Day after day.
Find a way.

My planner has a quote for each week (which I absolutely LOVE) and I’m really enjoying this one (besides the horrendous use of commas).
If you know me, you’ll know that I have real big aspirations when it comes to running and fitness. I prioritize exercise because it’s super important to me.
So when I broke my wrist this winter, the first thought that ran through my mind was how long I’d have to take off running. Not my photography business, not my wrist flexibility later in life — running.
I went to the doctor, I took a few days off, and then I got back to the fitness grind (slowly & safely). Running/fitness is incredibly important to me, so when I encountered a setback, I found a way around it. Even when it was hard, even when I felt ridiculous for doing a one-arm shoulder press at the gym.
I found a way.
Here I am, a few weeks post cast removal, seeing my fitness increase because I put in the work when it was hard to do. When I had a valid excuse to slack off, to lose sight of my dreams, to give up for a few weeks — I persisted. And it paid off. Heck to the freaking YES.
