Good Thought Eleanor

I don't think I have ever felt this tired in my life. You should be delighted that I am managing to sputter out these pointless words. I am pretty sure that I am wasting both of our times right this second. That kind of uselessness and waste should be commended. Stop. Okay.

I do have to say this much. When I get really tired, my brain always drifts to the pains in my life. My only guess as to why that happens is because someone wants me to despair. 

Despair- verb- "to lose, give up, or be without hope" (

I find it pretty interesting that giving up and being without hope mean the same as losing.

“You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do.” -Eleanor Roosevelt

So tonight I am not going to face any of the specific pains in my life. I will not try to figure out answers. I will not try to talk things out.

Tonight I am going to win. I will win because I am going to refuse to despair. I refuse to give up hope. I refuse to give up. 

Who told you life isn't worth the fight? So I am going to fight even though I have zero energy. 

Nope. I won't just settle for mediocrity. I am going to be needed in this fight called life.


  1. Thanks Andy. I needed this tonight!! ~Susan

  2. Hey you. Someone once told me "do the next right thing". Sometimes, the next right thing is going to bed. Or, eating a sandwich and then going to bed. Sometimes, that's the win. At least, that's what it can look like.

    Go you. Don't give up.
