One of the best feelings in the world is to visually see progress unfolding in your life. For a second, i couldn't see the light at the end of the tunnel, but i am now glad to say that things are happening for me just as i had planned. Make it an effort to always have something to work towards, even if small. Once you see yourself moving towards that goal, it'll give you a sense of self-worth and add a little validation to life. It feels great!
