Persist. You are writing a life. Today's not the story, but merely an episode.

If you ever feel discouraged, persist. Press on.

You are daily writing a life.

Today may have been comedy, farce, tragedy, romance, adventure, or even horror,

But today is an episode, not the story.

Even a collection of episodes that are a season of life,

May form a chapter. But not the whole book.

Unfortunately, I have found that you can’t skip the chapters you didn’t like,

But curiosity makes me want to stick around for the ending.

So much of coping is knowing the difference between an episode and the story,

The chapter and the book,

And realizing that you will continue writing a life tomorrow morning.
