Best-inspirational-motivational-life-quotes-to-live-by-365-quotes-of-tumblr-10

I’m sure you’re probably wondering why in unicorn poop did I pick this motivational quote to see you off for the rest of the week. Well… I figured this time I was going to be a bit more realistic. Meaning, and forgive me for being blunt, not all your hard work will pay off. Sometimes it will and other times it won’t. You just have to work the cards you’ve been dealt. It doesn’t mean you’re not going to succeed. It just means it might take a little longer to get there. Some times there will be days where you will feel knocked down. Like they’ve taken your last breath. But hang in there. Keep pushing through it. You will eventually see that not only are you stronger than what you thought but you will know how to conquer anything.

So my dear Pandas… This week let’s all try and be the windshield.

P.S.- Wishing you guys a very happy week!

We would subtly go unnoticed. We tended, cared, counselled, taught, loved, sacrificed, all in the effort to hopefully one day stand beside the man. But there were some of us that were ready to break that cycle. I’m talking about the single mothers out there. The women who are working three jobs and still taking classes to better educate themselves. The ones who are raising families while having a high powered career. The ones who are entrepreneurs and motivational speakers. The ones who struggle with postpartum depression, who suffer from an eating disorder and managed to come out the other side because of their sheer strength and determination. I am talking about women in the police force, the armed services, nurses, doctor, lawyers, CEO’s, teachers, and senators. All these women had the strength to do what they had to do to make this world a better place for the rest of us. They had the nerve to show us that we can step outside the box.
