Sometimes you learn.

It’s a great line that I’ve borrowed from an arty print I have hanging above my desk – “sometimes you win, sometimes you learn”. Learning is a win for me so as I absorbed that message, my view on difficulty and failure has improved hugely.

I aim to write daily, though there have been disruptions. I battle depression and have a demanding day job, so there are occasions where I don’t have it in me to write. If there’s a thing for me to remember and that I try to convey, it’s this – “kindly, keep going”.

Sometimes you win.
