ABC Moving forward With Determination

Always moving forward.
Best to put one foot in front of the other. 
Change is inevitable. 
Don't stop moving forward. 
Even in dark times 
Filling your heart with hope helps. 
Good intentions aren't enough actions count. 
Happy thoughts fill your body with joy. 
Into the unknown the brave will go. 
Just because your feeling down, you don't fall down, or stay down. 
Kindness to self is important. 
Listen to your soul singing it is song of Joy.
Many will not see into your heart, yet many will. 
Nothing is impossible. 
Opt out of failure, keep going. 
People can be shallow but also good. 
Quit times help to heal 
Restless times tell us to be moving. 
Sitting in silence helps clear the mind. 
Together we thrive  by helping each other. 
Understanding we are part of a whole.
Veins of the heart beat for each other.  
With determination we step forward treading down that slippery slope. 
x-ray vision would be great for seeing the truth in other people so we don't judge one another. 
You succeed when you jump right in. 
Zero tolerance for failure. Strive! Strive! Strive!
