Resilience Reminder

February 28, 2015 | 9 Comments

Drinking yesterday’s coffee because I don’t feel like making today’s. Honestly, it’s shit.

The days are persistent, and I hate being dragged. Everything feels tedious, even well-worn practices like writing. I’m too weary to hear myself speak.

I saw this Charlotte Brontë quote this morning. It resonated.

Brontë Quote

When I get tired of the fight, it’s important to reflect on why I try so hard. I land on these three values-




I overcome the lump in my throat to find myself. I show up in discomfort so I won’t be alone. I’m tenacious in the pursuit of healing. I just gotta get better. 

I appear to be giving myself a talking-to via blog post. At a time when I want to quit writing, here’s a reminder of why I started.

Thanks for listening. Onward, to March.

  1. It has been a long, sucky February, on top of a long sucky winter. What has saved me, so many times, are your words. Don’t quit writing them and sharing them. Spring is coming, one word at a time! Now, go make yourself a fresh cup of today coffee! xoxo

  2. Don’t ever quit. There’s a void in this world just waiting to be filled with the words YOU and only you will write. Remember that. You have a story to tell that needs to be told, a song to sing that only you will write the lyrics to, a poem that only you can arrange the prose. Sometimes your desire to write and your inspiration will go up and down, just as anything else. Don’t ever quit.

  3. I am completely new to your blog, and somehow even when you are writing about not feeling able to write, I find your words and the way you craft them wonderful. Hope March brings with it lighter days x
