It takes courage to reach. You may pour your heart, soul, tears and every fiber of yourself into your ambitions and still fall short. You may take a leap of faith only to feel yourself hit the ground with a devastating blow. These falls hurt more than most stumbles because they feel like the end of a dream; the end of a part of yourself. To this I say pick yourself up.

You are the one who gets to decide. Pick yourself up. 📷 cred @brookepass
