open invitation no. 68: try again

If something is important enough, you should try. Even if the probable outcome is failure.

[Elon Musk]

Here we go, trying again, after trying again, after trying again. Let’s write about trying again.

It’s been a long time since some of us have written. That’s okay.

Some of us don’t know what story to write. That’s okay.

Some of us don’t feel like writing. That’s okay.

Some of us feel like maybe we don’t have anything left of value to write. That’s okay.

Or maybe, it’s just one of us who feels this way (me). That’s okay.

I’m going to try again to collect moments and share them. I hope you will, too.

*Remember, you don’t have to accept this invitation…but I do hope you will accept the invitation to write. Sharing our stories is magical.

Unhurried. Finding the magic in the middle of living. Capturing a life of ridiculous grace + raw stories.
