we all have brick walls


(image via)
This past year has come with plenty of brick walls (trying to finish my thesis with an uncooperative advisor and job hunting, to name a few) but it has taught me, just as this wonderful print points out, that the choice is mine. I could have wallowed in the difficulty of the situations, banging my head against the immovable brick wall while crying out mantras of "poor me", or instead: persevere until the wall began to crumble (that's not to say there weren't some tears along the way.) So next time you're faced with a nasty wall blocking your way, remember that with patience, hard work, and persistence, it will eventually collapse to reveal a new path.
