Sunday Soapbox: Where You Need to Be. 

I saw a quote by Tracee Ellis Ross that said “May the space between where I am and where I want to be inspire me and not terrify me.” And I realized I’m terrified of that space! I’m literally living right in the middle of the end of my undergrad years, and where I want to be seems so far ahead in the distance. And I keep trying to do a little bit here, and a little bit there – trying to bridge the gap but I realized that I’m probably right where I need to be.
You can’t build to your character, patience, endurance, perseverance by living a life that works out perfectly every single time. Those things don’t come from getting what you want, those things come from trials & error, suffering, getting knocked down (and standing back up). Even if you’re not where you want to be right now, you’ll end up exactly where you need to be. Day by day. Step by step. Inch by inch. little by little. You’ll get there. I promise. And I completely believe that, at the end of the day – one day I will be exactly where I want to be.
