Day #14

Quote of the day:
"We are all in the gutter but some of us are looking at the stars." - Oscar Wilde

This quote was passed to us a while ago. It has become one of our favourite quotes of all time and definitely been of guidance to us.

Life is like the sea; full of ups and downs. What we must remember is nothing and nobody is perfect. There are those moments where we are at our lowest... fighting off struggles. As if there never seems to be a way out; stuck in a sudden state of hopelessness.

We've all experienced that "gutter" feeling, some may be in it now. Whatever those hardships are, there are those who decide to drown in despair and let it take over the better of them, thinking as though someone or something will change it. But there are others who, like the quote says "look up at the stars." Instead, they see ahead of their weaknesses and stretch beyond their present circumstances.

The gutter is no home to no one, its not where anyone wants to be. So, if ever you are in a rut, fix your  gaze on stars your heart desires; ones that will strengthen you. Take advantage of these stars and PERSEVERE!

Optimism is the way forward!
