So until then, remember that you are awesome. No matter what happens, no matter what setbacks you face, no matter how you struggle - you're doing a great job! I know it's easy to get bogged down in the negatives, all the ways you feel like you fell short but that gets us nowhere. Just take it one little step at a time, one little micromovement at a time. If you wanted to write, but you didn't get to it, and you're feeling bummed out, go get a sticky note and write an idea on it, any idea no matter how silly or grand. There you did it, you did some writing. Put it on your computer or your fridge or wherever and it will help to remind you to write. Then whatever you can manage to count that as a win. Even if you just sat at your desk and banged your head on the table. You showed up, and you gave it a shot. Count every little progress as a win. Nothing is ever perfect. Things never turn out the way we think they will. And that's okay. You're doing a great job. Keep at it and stay positive. I believe in you.
Good luck and keep writing!
P.S. You can use that trick for everything, by the way - cleaning your house, paying your bills, organizing your sock drawer. Take one little step at a time and you'll get there.
