I got an email from a friend today. She lives on the other side of the world. We chit-chat about books and writing, friends and family. We’ve never actually met. But I’m always glad to hear from her.
Attached to the bottom of her email was the last email I sent her. Idly, I read through it, wondering what I’d waffled about (it had been a while between emails).
There was a lot of waffle. Then, about halfway down, these words:
“Don’t give up. Persistence is the key to this whole mess.”
I can’t tell you how much I needed to read my own words of advice today.
