The courage to try again

“Courage does not always roar. Sometimes courage is that quiet voice at the end of the day that says…I will try again tomorrow.” ~Mary Anne Radmacher

Some days are harder than others. Some days I’m stronger than others.

Some days it’s easier to just lay where I’ve fallen instead of fighting to pick myself back up to try again to get it right.

Some days it’s so tempting to let myself drown in that vast lake of self-pity that can feel like such a gentle comfort amidst the struggle, the pain, the hard.

Some days it takes all the courage I have to let go of today and be willing to try again tomorrow.

Today is one of those days. I am tired and lonely and heartsore.

But I have just enough courage to try again … tomorrow.
