The Climb

This song has been on my mind that last few days and in my mind has kind of become my theme song. I have found it to be motivational--part of the lyrics say " faith is shaken but I got to keep trying, got to keep my head held high."

For those of you who know what challenge I have faced lately might appreciate it. I don't want to go into much detail about what happened but I will say this, when your character is in question you need to stand your ground and you cannot be shaken, it is important to remember who you are. There is opposition in all things and although I have always known that, the struggle I have faced with school this last week, and entire semester has put that concept right in my face.

Things happen for a reason and it is frustrating at times if we don't have perspective to see why whatever the problem may be has occurred. School has been an up-hill battle and I am not expecting it to be easy but I also know that I am not breaking under the pressure or accusations. My friend Liz said, "truth always wins" and at the time it seemed cliche' but right now I would have to agree with her.

On the bright side, what I have learned through all of this that I have a wonderful network of friends and family who have my back and for that I am truly grateful-thank you.

...I got to be strong, just keep pushing on, keep the faith.

You're AMAZING Tiffani! I told you it would sound cliche when I said the truth always wins, but it's true (especially when you've done everything you can & the Lord's on your side).
