Thanks for your beautiful words Irene.

It’s tough to go there as a writer every day. Sometimes I’ve spent all my emotions on the events of the day and the last thing I want to do is spill more when I sit in front of my computer at night.

But we must go there. Like you said — we have to look within ourselves. Some people are doctors who don’t want to see another patient for the day. Some are delivery men who want to quit at 3:30 instead of 5. And some are writers who get nautious at the thought of writing one more word.

We must find it in ourselves to do it though. Because that’s who we are.

Like what you read? Give Tom Kuegler a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
