I remember being in a state and city I disliked and no matter how much I tried to like it, I never did and never will. It was so much different than who I was, but I made the best of it, because I always knew it was temporary. I continued to work hard on my dreams and I did achieve great things there. But when it time to go I pretty much ran to a place I wanted to be. And when I got to that new place, my mental health got better, because I was happier there. I was like a fish in water and big things started happening.
What I'm saying is that even though we may find ourselves in a mental or physical place, we don't have to resign ourselves to being there forever. We can still see the vision God has for us and we can continue doing the work to get there.
Never settle. Dream always.
