I was having such a good run, too. Managed almost two whole months without missing a day of posting and writing.

Mea culpa. The trick now is not to be defeated, to beat myself up for missing that day and turn it into a downward spiral of hopelessness that leads to a second missed day… and a third… and then a few dozen after that.

That’s always been the curse. Everything’s going great, then there’s one hiccup and it turns into the end of the world, with guilt and self-loathing conspiring to keep me away from the only things that would actually make me feel better about it.

What about those of you out there? How do you deal when you set a goal and miss it? How easy is it to climb back atop the horse, and what secret tricks do you use? Let us know down below!
