Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up."
It was Winston Churchill who gave a speech back in the 40s to never give in! I just looked it up so I wouldn't misquote him...
The road to success is not straight
My friends are SO encouraging. They know how much of a struggle this is for me and they help me remember to rejoice over small victories and to not give up when I do get off track. I want to reach for perfection, but they remind me that setbacks do not equal failure.
