“Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, I will try again tomorrow.”
~Mary Anne Radmacher

Sometimes it feels like I’m just too tired to try again. Sometimes all I want to do is sit down, veg out, and maybe watch an episode of Downton Abbey.

My clients tell me that they have times when they aren’t sure they can keep going. When they want to give up, even if just for a bit.

At times we feel this way, and often we keep trying and doing anyway. Sometimes that makes sense, but sometimes stopping, at least for now, is the smartest, and bravest, thing to do.

There is always a great deal of pressure to keep going, keep trying, keep giving it our all, and never say die. But sometimes that’s not the most courageous thing to do.

Sometimes the courageous, the most courageous, thing to do is to take a break, and try again tomorrow.

Where do you need to take a break and try again tomorrow? How will you?
