I'm not much for pithy little quotes. But something keeps running through my head, and it's been a strange sort of comfort to me. "The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." I took that first step over three years ago. I keep thinking I have to start over. But the person I am today is different than the one I was in 2008, physically and mentally. I keep calling the past year a backslide. But it's not. It's all part of that journey. Whatever transpired is a permanent part of my history, and something I should reflect on. Because I have to learn something from it.
One day won't make or break me. It's just another day, one of thousands of my life.
