Not Giving Up [70/365]

I’ve missed a few days of writing. To be very honest, that’s discouraging. It’s not been easy to choose to continue writing, I almost just gave up. Not because it is so hard, but because I did not stay in the challenge rules. Falling is part of life. If I stop just because I fell a few times, I’ll never properly walk, even less run.

An Evening Daily [22/365]

Today’s daily is released in the evening instead of the morning as usual. I decided yesterday to prioritize sleep over getting up to work this morning because I was starting to feel very tired. And it’s ok to twist the process a little bit. As long as it is still here. I am not the first one to say this, but it does not matter how much you fall, it matters how fast you get back up.
