I will share other people's posts that get my mind thinking too - obviously there will be a lot of Jess's writing pieces too unless of course she doesnt want me sharing.

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh.
When care is pressing you down a bit.
Rest, if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns
As every one of us sometimes learns.
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out:
Don't give up though the pace seems slow -
You may succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out -
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt.
And you never can tell how close you are.
It may be near when it seems so far:
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.
Oh this journey, this path through life
Day after day, night after night
Can't sleep it away, can't put it behind
It's there in my mind, its part of the time
This journey's the path through the stages in life
It unravels the mysteries, shows us the light
Presents to us choices from which we must decide
There's no time to think
Is there somewhere to hide?
So we use our own judgment and
pressed by time we flip a dime
Heads or Tails, we succeed or we fail
To later discover through what the journey unravels
If we only knew yesterday what we'll know tomorrow
Let's run through the journey and maybe we'll see
But this journey is wiser than you and me
So I learn from the journey and from all my mistakes
Take the wisdom and knowledge to every next day
Focus on the good things that have come my way
I have learned, I have grown
I will learn, I will grow
From every day, from every stage
Heads or Tails, I will succeed, I won't fail
