If you think you’re going through hell…

Monday_quotesToday’s quote has a tremendous amount of meaning to me.  After months in intensive care and other hospital facilities, and with many more months of the same to come, I was feeling at a low point.  Things were bleak, and improvements seemed minimal, if they existed at all.  It was a dark time.

One nurse I had was wonderful.  I looked forward to her days on duty, eagerly anticipating her arrival and visits to my room throughout the day.  She was one of the bright spots in the gloom.

When I confided in her that sometimes I wasn’t sure it was worth the struggle, she shared this quote with me:

If you think you're going thru hell, keep going.

I repeated those words over and over in my mind… and still do.

The only way to get out of a bad situation is to keep going.  The only way to get to where you want to be is to keep going.  As long as you keep going, you are not stopped.

If things don’t look promising where you are right now in life, keep going.

If you dream of better health, more love, a life free of lack and want…keep going.

These words had a lot to do with my very survival, and the recovery that I have been blessed with.  I hope they serve you even half as well as they have served me.
