“Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail Better.” -Samuel Beckett
I almost didn’t post today. I am beyond sick right now. I seriously considered taking a sick day, but this blog is important to me. It’s like my job, but one that I love. I enjoy it. It’s fun for me, and I adore the thought that my writing may somehow touch other people and encourage them.
So, here I am, clinging to my keyboard for dear life. I’m a big fan of today’s quote. I feel like it perfectly embodies my writing career so far, and I find it appropriate for others who may be struggling in the pursuit of their respective callings.
We try. We fail. We try again. When you love something and feel called to do it, that’s what you do. You keep trying no matter what obstacles crop up. I want to encourage you to remind yourself of what draws you to your calling, and make a promise to yourself that you won’t give up until you succeed.
