You’ll face changes your entire life. When you encounter one that seems huge, remind yourself of all other challenges you conquered to get here. You faced mountains before – you’ll learn how to overcome this one as well.
Fear tends to come from ignorance. Once I knew what the problem was, it was just a problem, nothing to fear.
The truth is that the world is full of dragons, and none of us are as powerful or cool as we’d like to be. And that sucks. But when you’re confronted with that fact, you can either crawl into a hole and quit, or you can get out there, take off your shoes, and Bilbo it up.
You just do it. You force yourself to get up. You force yourself to put one foot before the other, and God damn it, you refuse to let it get to you. You fight. You cry. You curse. Then you go about the business of living. That’s how I’ve done it. There’s no other way.
Over every mountain there is a path, although it may not be seen from the valley.
Challenges Are What Make Life Interesting And Overcoming Them Is What Makes Life Meaningful.

I read somewhere… how important it is in life not necessarily to be strong, but to feel strong… to measure yourself at least once.
