Just a swing away

I stole this photo off of my cousin's Facebook page and found it inspiring. Photo removed

How many of us surrender and stop trying when it might only be a few more swings of the axe that separates us from success.

You never know when you might break through that wall. It might come with your next query, your next book, your next chapter.

So just keep digging and eventually you'll reach the treasure.

Wow, that is just SO very true. You could be really close, but if you give up--you'll never know! (and then you'll always feel vaguely bad for quitting, giving up--or at least I would)

I needed that today- my family has been sick and I feel like I'm digging out of a hole- laundry, bills, laundry. I've had little time to write! Thanks for encouraging me!
