"Jiayou", if translated literally, is Chinese for "add oil". However, it is taken to mean "fight on!" Sometimes in life we encounter an obstacle and want nothing more than to just give up. In those situations, I tell myself that I can and will triumph over the difficulties and I do. Life is never easy and there are always hurdles to jump over, but the best thing to do is to move forward and "jiayou"!
