Day 32: 365 Days of Motivation for Widows

“The best way to guarantee a loss is to quit.”      –Morgan Freeman

We all wonder what twists and turns are waiting for us. We wonder if we will ever heal and move forward. It would be great if we could predict the future, but no one knows what will come our way.

What we do know is if we never try, failure is the only result we can achieve.

Way back, when I was 17 and a new mom, I struggled emotionally and mentally. To get through, I created a mantra of sorts. I had to do something to break my cycle. For me, it worked. I found myself repeating it constantly at first–as time moved on I needed it less. Over the  years I have created several mantras and I still use them, or pieces of them at times. My favorite mantra piece that runs through my mind the most is, “I have the perseverance to achieve my dreams…”. Sometimes I need a reminder that I am not a quitter.

About Sara

My name is Sara and I am a woman with a history and a future. I am a mother of 5 and a wife to an amazing man. Being a teen mother and a widow in my mid-twenties has given me plenty of storms to weather. Writing has always been my solace, it's also a passion and a talent. Through my writing I hope to help others weather their storms and create my own path to my dreams.
