One morning in 1982, a bright 17 year-old girl opened a rejection letter from her dream college. In the following years, she lost her mother and miscarried her first child. Her husband was abusive and after just a year of marriage, she was a divorced, single mother suffering from severe depression. She relied on welfare to make ends meet and at 30, she contemplated suicide.
But something inside her told her to keep going. She knew if she did, it would work out.
At 31? She published her very first book. That woman was J.K. Rowling, the wildly successful author and creator of the Harry Potter franchise. Feeling the full weight of the downs that life had to offer, this incredible woman kept going through it all and was able to share her talent with the world.
KEEP GOING is for the woman who is in it right now. Who feels like life just keeps piling its blows in a heap on top of her, and feels like it could just crush her if she let it.
