Saturday Secrets: Keep Going

If you're going through hell, keep going
~Winston Churchill

With book 39 on the shelves and books 40, 41, 42, 43 and 44 written, I am tired. Lupus sucks, but book 45 will not write itself.

Saturday secret number 1. Keep going. Even if it's just a step. Because moving forward is better than staying in the same place, and writing one page is better than writing none.

Early morning routine. Read, write, swallow pills. Repeat.

Words of wisdom that I chant to myself : No one can do this except you (so get your head off the desk and get on with it). 

A Pilates instructor once told me that motion is lotion. Stay in one position for too long and we freeze-up and limit our ability to move. So...I'm looking very rough on this fine Saturday morning, but I'm moving. 

That's what you do when you've got a chronic illness, a great family, a good career and a sovereign God. You just keep moving.  Blessings for the day, my friends! May you find your motivation and your joy and your will to keep on going through whatever mucky mess you might find yourself in!
