Journey to 135: Weeks 1-4

“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.

Never give up on your passion!!!

Sometimes we all just need a little motivation…

Everything in life is temporary. So if things are going good, enjoy it, because it wont last forever. And if things are going bad, don’t worry. It cant last forever either.
