Take time to do what makes your soul happy.tapping into that part of you will nourish all other aspects of your life. Take the time. Revel in that time. And remember that time when not able to take that time ;D
If you never give up then no matter what you never really loose. Hold on, and hold on strong. No matter how bad it may hurt, how long it may take, no matter what life throws at you. Hold on to what you love.
