“Never give up on something that you can’t go a day without thinking about.”

―Winston Churchill

In my head, I quit on my blog at least once a month. I discourage myself. I complain. I get frustrated. I lack creativity. Then out of nowhere, someone will pop up and comment on my blog or someone will inquire about my blog and I feel that pang of excitement all over again. I think about my blog daily. I think about what to write next, I think about how to modify my blog, I love researching new words and phrases and I genuinely love formulating my thoughts for display. In the back of my mind, I do know that the magic is to continue to strive towards my passion because I’m bound to succeed in one way or another. Time to crank up this Black Girl Magic!

Never give up on your passion!!!

Sometimes we all just need a little motivation…
