My 5 o'clock shadow.

No I'm not developing a beard, although once in a while my tweezers would beg to differ. I am referring to the time of day when my motivation and body seems to just shut down.
It is, of course, the busiest time of the day for me, homework, dinner, quickly cleaning so as to make it appear I've been busy ALL day :) Yet my inner motivator (dressed in a striped, lycra, unitard and Reebok high tops) seems to have clocked off for the night. Maybe it's my 240 mg of caffeine I devour during the day that's worn off. I can't figure it out but it's like clockwork.
Any suggestions?

My Silent Journey Back.

It seems when we embark on something new or hard we are all excited and enthusiastic, only to find that when we meet a hiccup or road block, we quit and shy away with our tail between our legs. We feel like a failure and stop believing we can achieve things.
We know people are watching and feel embarrassed, somehow accountable to them.
I believe the journey is full of hills and bumps and the warrior is the one who gets back on the road, silently ploughing through the roadblocks.
Today I feel like that warrior, moving forward, slowly, not shouting but with head down and collar up.
I WILL MAKE IT through this journey, with only me on my side and in my shoes and will listen for the voice that constantly, but so quietly, whispers to me, "yes you can!" and I will believe him, because HE knows me.
