Feet first: Trip to Roland Garros, Paris

July 19, 2018

11 years, 4 months, and 12 days later

July 7, 2018

Inspirational Leader

Have you ever felt that you can no longer go on anymore? Have you tried your hardest but still can get nowhere? Or if you get someone you are thrown back into day 1?

By no means am I back to where I was 11 years, 4 months, and 12 days ago.

There are always days that I start to feel like I shouldn’t be here nor made it through that but I did. It brings me chills just to even view these photos. I don’t want to even wonder how my parents, my family, and my friends felt.

Tonight is one of those nights and I am sure my time could be better spent filling out yet another job application or following up on one.

I am tired. I am worn out. I do feel like I have failed. I feel like I just need to give up trying.
