19/365: Apply Yourself

January 19

Apply yourself

Describe your last attempt to learn something that did not come easily to you.


She was the worst at patience.

The last time she attempted to learn it, it was at the bow of a ship in her soon-to-be lovers arms

She only wanted to throw herself into the frigid waters, but he told her it would feel like 100,000 knives…

She was worried that somewhere they made it up.

She stepped back from the precipice

only to endure the 100,000 knives

during the daily ritual known as

“every day”

She always bore them with a smile

on her face.
