Photography by Miki In the midst of our good intentions and honest-to-goodness want to get to its, life happens. And you have to go with the flow, picking up where you left off and continuing on the journey no matter what. As I've been reiterating to my daughter recently regarding some challenges in her own life, it's not about being perfect. It's about giving your best. And when we fall short of that, which we all inevitably do, it's imperative that we continue forward anyway. Be a river, sometimes raging forward and at other times gently trickling along, not a stagnant pond. Like the arrow in the above picture, keep going forward.
