OctPoWriMo Day 7


“That’s what keeps me going: dreaming, inventing, then hoping and dreaming some more in order to keep dreaming.”


Sometimes when you're stuck, it's so easy to stay stuck. Some of our stumbling blocks and challenges can seem insurmountable, especially at that moment. When we push through and get to the other side, it can be these very obstacles that make the win even sweeter. Finding the courage to persevere, no matter the circumstance, can be life-changing and often for the better. Thinking back to challenging times, what did you gain from stepping forward?

Poetry Prompt
Were you ever surprised by your own courage and determination? What can we learn by deciding not to give up? Where can you find the reward in the journey or is the journey its own reward? Falling is as important as soaring because these experiences help shape who we are as individuals. Tell me how your story propels your need to put one foot in front of the other.
