The obstacles set before you are the guiding stones to brace yourself upon only to push you forward or up to the next level of enlightenment or success.
If you forget to breathe then surely you will drown, falling back into the past repeating the cycle you were supposed to grow and learn from. Hold onto the past with positive resonance and embrace the future with gratitude.
Every obstacle is a gift, a challenge to make your mind strong and happy.
Remaining stagnant or loosely behind is easy for anyone to achieve, you must push forward and gain speed. The further you go, the easier it is to press forward.
If you surround yourself with people who are stuck in repetition or not moving at all then surely you will fall into their patterns or not move at all. You have to surround yourself with progression, movement and positivity in order to move forward.
