U.G.L.Y Forever

I could not wait to get here today because of how much inspiration I received over the weekend. In my recent post, Don’t Give Up, I spoke about how I wanted to give up and just say forget everything that I am trying to accomplish for myself right now. Although I was able to encourage myself to keep going, there was still some doubt in the back of my mind.
