And that’s exactly what I’ve been saying to myself almost every single day “well this thing sucked today, but I’ll try again tomorrow”. Today I’ve probably said it like a hundred times, feeling pretty miserable with a bad head cold, the whole day was one long stretch of “I’ll try it again tomorrow”.
I think courage is also facing the reality and accepting the parts that are beyond your control. I’ve long ago accepted the fact that my post-cancer and chemo body will probably never feel and function at the same level and with the same energy it was pre-cancer. I can cry and stomp my feet about it and say “it ain’t so”, but it is. Even a simple cold becomes a strategic warfare of survival, so if today is pretty miserable, then maybe if I try again tomorrow, and it will be better, or the day after tomorrow…
When I signed up for this challenge, I knew it would be exactly that, challenging, to post every day. So I made up three simple rules for myself: make a daily post, make it meaningful and be sincere. The length or the complexity of the subject was not on the list.
Therefore, 1: I posted, 2: I attached a meaningful quote, and 3: I was sincere.
I’ll try again tomorrow…
