“Never give up. Today is hard, tomorrow will be worse, but the day after tomorrow will be sunshine.” – Jack Ma
We’ve all been there, life is not fair, mistakes happen, life happens but we are still standing. Sometimes, we feel like just throwing in the towel because we think life is meaningless and our efforts are worthless, trust me, I’ve been there. The trials, the mistakes, working in between jobs, the demands of family, the stress of relationship (it happens sometimes), life can be so frustrating, but amidst the frustration and trials, amid all the setbacks and heartbreaks, life is beautiful, so no matter what, never give up.
Take time and reflect on these quotes:
