at the finish line (almost)

Today’s post is my second to last (Day 364). I’ll admit to feeling a bit relieved as I finish up, but also slightly sad. It will take a little while to adjust to my normal days again, and I will very much miss the connection with my readers and followers.

To finish is sadness to a writer, a little death. He puts the last word down and it is done. But it isn’t really done. The story goes on and leaves the writer behind, for no story is ever done. -John Steinbeck

Your spirit is the duster of any spider web. Behind every finish line, there is a start one. Behind every success, there is another challenge. While you are alive, be alive. If you miss what you once did, do it again. Don’t live in yellow photos… Continue although everyone expects you to give up…When because of years you cannot run, jog. When you cannot jog, walk. When you cannot walk, use a cane. But never stop! -Mother Teresa

There are times when you run a marathon and you wonder, Why am I doing this? But you take a drink of water, and around the next bend, you get your wind back, remember the finish line, and keep going. -Steve Jobs

There will come a time when you believe everything is finished. That will be the beginning. -Louis L’Amour

Success is empty if you arrive at the finish line alone. -Howard Schultz

Now finish the work, so that your eager willingness to do it may be matched by your completion of it, according to your means. -2 Corinthians 8:11 NIV
