Sometimes you have to take a step back before you can leap forward. Whenever things feel like they’re going backwards, do not give up even if you’re feeling discouraged. Sometimes we need to be shaken awake by something unexpected happening so that we can become a greater version of ourselves or pursue something greater than what we were currently pursuing. It might not feel like a blessing in the moment but as long as you pursue everything with an open mind, who knows were life might lead you. Life might lead you on a more beautiful path then you could have ever dreamed of because you were too busy with your head down and your nose in a map.
