Are you working hard towards something? Keep going! Don't give up! There is a process. Welcome it, be excited about it, and learn from it! Let yourself grow in patience, and let how far you've come motivate you to go further.
The past is great to reflect on for only two things:
1. To take how far you've come in order to go further.
2. To change from the things you not longer wish to be associated with.
Be patient as you work diligently. God has a plan for you, and on His timing, you'll see the results. #TrustHisProcess
