Almost

10:24 PM

I almost gave up today. Almost. 

- The thing that I'm waiting on didn't come through
- There was a bank error that was not in my favor
- People weren't where they were supposed to be

And for a moment, I was really close to saying I quit.  I can't do this anymore, I'm not going to try. For a while I allowed myself to feel the entire burden I'm carrying and didn't fight it.  For far too many minutes I let every bad thing overwhelm me.

For a little while, I was ready to do the most dramatic wall slide in the history of wall slides and then just lay on the floor twitching occasionally.  It seemed like a good idea.  I was tired. And that's what you do when you're tired.  You go sit down. 



But then.  I got it together.  I handled my business, I kept moving forward.  Failure is not an option.  Giving up is not an option.  Laying down and allowing the world to run me over isn't going to work.

Instead.
