“When the world says, ‘Give up,’ Hope whispers, ‘Try it one more time.'”
No long entry this time. None of my usual inability to stop writing. No connecting a quote to this journey to get my books published. Because sometimes all those words aren’t necessary. Sometimes a quote can say it all.
So instead of writing a whole entry on this quote, I’m just going to take its words to heart … and vow again not to give up on this, even though sometimes – especially lately – it seems like circumstances and common sense would tell me I should. But I can’t – and I won’t. I’ll try it one more time – and one more time over and over again, for however long it takes. Some might say that makes me a glutton for punishment. But it doesn’t, not at all. Does it mean I’m setting myself up for disappointment? Maybe. But I prefer to think that it makes me a dreamer who’s willing to work as hard as I possibly can to make that dream come true. One more time or a thousand more times … whatever it takes.
