Never Give Up

I know I will fail again, because I know I will then Succeed.
The question is not who is going to let me, but who is going to stop me.
Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain.
To those of you who laughed at me, thank you. For without you, I wouldn’t have cried.
To those of you who hurt my feelings, thank you. For without you, I wouldn’t have felt them.
To those of you who left me alone, thank you. For without you I wouldn’t have discovered myself.
But it is to those of you who thought I couldn’t do . . .  it is you I thank the most
Because without you, I wouldn’t have tried.
It’s not what happens to you, it’s what you do about it.
It’s not about how hard you get hit, it’s about how much you can get hit and get back up.
Failing is not when you fall down; it is when you refuse to get up.
Just because you can’t see the air, doesn’t mean you stop breathing.
Just because you can’t see the end of the tunnel, doesn’t mean you stop walking.
Just because you don’t see God, doesn’t mean you stop believing.
Do not regret anything, because every little detail of your life is what made you into the person you are.
Every little decision I made me the person I am today.
Do not lose hope, for when the storm ends, a rainbow sure follows; whether you can see it or not.
I was taught to love, learn and give, but never give up.
That is what I plan to do in life; Never…Give…Up!
