You’ve Got This!
Sometimes we all need a boost, a reminder of what is possible. A cheerleader even.
Recently a friend was going through a bit of a challenging time – one that she couldn’t pull back from or resist, she had to keep on charging right on through this difficult time.
It sucked, but she got through it.
My friend needed encouragement.
All I could do was to listen, ask what she needed and offer any help I could provide. Funnily enough, my friend asked me to keep on reminding her that she would get through this time. Daily. So I compiled some powerful quotes and sayings that helped remind her that she would be okay and texted them to her daily. The following list is what I sent her and I know that others could also use this daily reminder.
Remember, you’ve got this!
