All of us struggle. Some of us may share the same mountain while others are trudging up their own. The thing that tends to keep all of us going is…hope. I know it sounds like it belongs in a Disney movie with a princess and a song, but without it, we would give up.

For me I’d quit writing. It’s something I seriously thought about this weekend, but in the end I realized I couldn’t live my life without it. Because writing makes me…ME. I have to keep the hope that one day my writing will matter to someone else too.

I stumbled across this great article that says it better than I can. It’s long, but worth it.
