Day 50. Day 50. Day 50. I just have to say it few times so it sinks in. I feel like I’ve just started. I feel like I’ve been doing this my whole life, and there’s no end in sight.

So many contradictions. So many “both/ands” rather than “either/or”. I’m both excited and discouraged by my work. Both want to quit, take a break, and keep going well beyond the 100 days. I’m feeling both blue and bright blue (throwback to my last 30 day challenge).

But these arrived today. So I guess I’m going to see it, everything, as half full.
