Good morning and Happy Friday, dear one.

I’m dealing with some frustration and hurt surrounding some work-related stuff that I can’t do a lot about right now, and it got the better of me yesterday afternoon. It was beyond the normal levels of anxiety and I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that I thought about walking away from all of the stress entirely.

When I got in the car to leave my office in the afternoon, the hypnotic voices of Peter Gabriel and Kat Bush pulled me out of my head:

Don’t give up

’cause you have friends

Don’t give up

You’re not beaten yet

Don’t give up

I know you can make it good

The fact is, the work I’m doing is important. It matters to me and to others, and no one else can do it quite the way I do. Though it is difficult and painful, I am not beaten yet, and I will not give up.

Whatever challenges you’re faced with, don’t give up. Who you are is important, and you matter. If you haven’t heard, the world is a better place because of you.

And never forget that I love you.
