Sometimes, gentle readers, it feels like I can never get ahead. For every step that I take forward, I'm suddenly forced to take two steps backwards. It's frustrating and dispiriting, but I endure. I keep trying to walk forward because the alternative is to stand still, to be rooted to the spot, bound in place by circumstance and fear.
That's no way to live.
So, keep walking forward. Push yourself against the wind. Even if it does knock you back, even if your progress seems glacial, know that you're still moving ahead.
