My Faith first and foremost, without it I'm not as strong as I need to be.

I gain a lot of courage from it, and just keep reading my Bible and the promises it has for me and my life.

It helps me pray, and then a super strength comes and I know that I'm being looked after.

My sons and my family, are also part of keeping things together, and they are always in my heart .
This question was inspired by a story about a woman who was spurred on to success by the death of her mother. For me, the living members of my family are probably my biggest spur and inspiration and also some very good close friends.
Thinking about how much I'd hate myself if I failed.
I'm in that position now, having just gotten results back from an online summer university subject, and failed the first assessment by 4 marks.

But it's been a difficult time with a mostly absent lecturer and students left to our own devices much of the time.

I do have another assessment to hopefully make up the marks though, so will wait till after that to see what happens.

My faith in God. Sometimes I want to give up but deep down I know it will get better.
