Temptations

You wake up in the morning and you’re feeling really confident not to give in to temptation during the day. That’s when you’ll have to remind yourself that you might not be able to keep up these thoughts all day

What I’ve been trying to teach myself is that mistakes, wrong decisions and failures do not blur our vision of the path we’re walking.
