It does help to have support of those closest to you as well. A personal cheering squad so-to-speak. I have a girlfriends that are here for me...I do wish some of them lived closer though! Unfortunately, some of the people "closest" to me just aren't part of that cheering squad, and I think that's what's making things feel so much harder to handle right now. But I really am thankful for the ones that are here right now. Don't know what I'd do without them!

I also get tons of inspiration from a few great authors such as Patti Digh and recently Danielle LaPorte who said in her book The Firestarter Sessions: "Intend to shine...You can be a magnet for goodness even in hard times, if you simply choose to accentuate the positive and focus on where you want to go" (p. 102). This quote is something pushing me forward right now. Hopefully you can find a little inspiration from it as well.
