This is something that I’ve been trying to read every morning before the start of the day. It is something that I think a lot of recent college graduates should think about. It is easy to get discouraged in the job-hunt when hearing several rejections. Graduates shouldn’t let the rejections/joblessness get to them. As long as a person keeps at it, they will eventually get the opportunity they need. It takes patience and persistence.  Below is a few excerpts from A Creek To Live By by Nancye Sims

Don’t undermine your worth by comparing

yourself with others.
It is because we are different that each
of us is special.
Don’t set your goals by what other people
deem important.

Only you know what is best for you.
By living your life one day at a time, you live all the
days of your life.
Don’t give up when you still have something to give.
Nothing is really over … until the moment
you stop trying.
Don’t be afraid to admit that you are less
than perfect.
It is the fragile thread that binds us to each other.

Don’t be afraid to encounter risks,
It is by taking chances that we learn how to be brave.
Don’t shut love out of your life by saying it’s
impossible to find.
The quickest way to receive love is to give love.

By Nancye Sims
