If You’re Going Through Hell Keep Going by Valerie Cheers Brown

“NOT endeavoring may be agreeable, but rather it is an incredible indicator of one thing. You will stay where you are. Circumstances may (or may not) change, but rather by chance that you are not in real life you won’t be their engineer.”

“To roll out enduring improvement, change, is going to take every day routine of venturing out into the obscure and moving past what you believed was conceivable. In all its frightening grandness.”

“On the other side is the gold of the life you pronounced conceivable. This is the amusement we are in – would you say you are up to rolling out the improvement of a lifetime?”

“I am here to empower you to open that door of opportunity……. to carry on with the life you generally envisioned – every last bit of it…..in every sense.”

“To open that little voice inside…..you know the one…..and set it free,,,resonating,,,,blissful…… bobbing off the walls inspired!”

“I’m a qualified new entrepreneur, blessed with many mentors, published author, mom, grandmother…… all with the love of many people, life and writing. I’m lucky to have had a diverse path in life through many different job opportunities or careers, relationships meeting many new people from all walks and many different cultures……some being diverse which has taught me the secrets of success, happiness and the fastest route to fulfilment.”

“However…..you must open your heart,,,,,,,claim your will and air out your brain, body and soul to positive change. Because let me tell you,,,,when you do,,,,,,when you truly want it……incredible things will come to you.”

I love this amazing quote by Elizabeth Gilbert, best-selling novelist,  “The woman who I love and admire for their strength and grace did not get that way because shit worked out.  They got that way because shit went wrong, and they handled it.  They handled it in a thousand different ways on a thousand different days, but they handled it.  Those women are my superheroes.”

“Do you know somebody like this woman?”

“Most likely……we can say yes to our mothers who are or were those amazing and incredible women…. who both put up with their kids shitty things and ways…… and the husband they love until death due them part like they promise God.”

“Life is tough….but so are you!”

“Just remember….it never hurts to keep looking for sunshine.”

“I can recall reading Elizabeth Gilbert’s novel, Eat Pray Love, in the wake of a time of what felt like a great many challenges. A period when it felt like each one of the essential human needs…..affection, importance and assurance…had been turned on its head …..somewhat like being in a clothes washer.”

“So in case you’re wading through the test right now…….regardless of how huge or little….hold onto it tightly and continue and keep moving forward with your dreams” 🙂

Just remember…..”That sentiment of being lost is the start of an adventure journey of wisdom and if you really want it…….strength will be your best friend!”

“I often think about the legendary Maya Angelou and her childhood story which gives such hope to all young girls.”

“Maya Angelou’s early life was tarred by rape and prostitution. So disturbing was the abuse that she endured aged seven, she stopped talking for five years.”

“Despite this, she developed a love of language which saw her become a world-famous poet, civil rights activist (working with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X) and award-winning author known for her acclaimed memoir “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings”.”


I close by quoting a famous quote by Dr. Angelou and hope you will always remember just how blessed we really are when we look at those who are not so blessed as you and I. ~ Today I am blessed.

“The ship of my life may or may not be sailing on calm and amiable seas. The challenging days of my existence may or may not be bright and promising. Stormy or sunny days, glorious or lonely nights, I maintain an attitude of gratitude. If I insist on being pessimistic, there is always tomorrow. Today I am blessed.” ~ Maya Angelou

“So….if your’re going through hell keep going!”
