Life is tough, but you must be tougher

Do you ever feel like the whole world is against you? 

Or that you are cursed or that when things are going well there is someone who watches and says: "Really? You think this is going to work? Try this." And sure enough something happens and what started like a great thing becomes a problem.

People tend to try to make you feel better and say: "Bad things come in threes." I think they missed out the zero in the end.  

Instead of listing all the horrible things that have happened recently I dug out these and try to follow their lead :)) x

“Life is tough, but you must be tougher.” 


Fall seven times, stand up eight.  

~Japanese Proverb

“In the middle of every difficulty lies opportunity.” 


“If you’re going through hell, keep going.” 

~Winston Churchill~

When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.  

~Franklin D. Roosevelt

 And isn't this last one so lovely?

When the Japanese mend broken objects, they aggrandize the damage by filling the cracks with gold.  They believe that when something's suffered damage and has a history it becomes more beautiful.
