its what makes so much conversation. It makes up a great deal of our past too. The historical events that have occurred through our lifetime. For me many people may ask can you remember 9/11? or where were you when Andy Murray won Wimbledon or Usain Bolt thrashed the 100m world record?
Wales reaching the semi final of Euro 2016, princess Diana's death along with many more celebrity deaths, the result of brexit etc the list is endless. But all the above and so much more make up history in my life. The elders of my family may have historical events that happened well before I was around.
But one big event that has happened is Hilary Clinton is one step closer to becoming the first female president. So this week I thought I'd use a quote from her
'Always aim high, work hard, and care deeply about what you believe in. And, when you stumble, keep faith. And, when youre knocked down, get right back up and never listen to anyone who says you cant or shouldnt go on.'
Throughout her own journey she must have stumbled and been knocked down but her resilience has shone through. She never gave up on her dreams. She got herself back up and carried on. Learnt from the knocks and it's got her to within a step of the presidency seat.
Anyone who says you can't or shouldn't clearly doesn't believe in you but all you need to do is believe in yourself and you're half way there. As I've said before it doesn't matter if your dreams are life changing or just small and simple. You have to believe you can achieve them regardless of what others say.
Throughout life we will hit setbacks but what will make our success the more bittersweet if when we carry on throughout those setbacks.
All I can really echo is Hilary's amazing words. Work hard and when knocked down, get right back up.
Until next week
Much love :)
