My dear,

I ask of you one thing, stop saying, “I’ll try.”

Don’t try. Trying is failing with grace. Just do your best.

Put your heart into it. And not just a bit, all of it. If you give anything less it doesn’t count. You’ve failed. And you have no one to blame but yourself.

And here’s the secret, if you do put your whole heart into it, you’ve won, no matter what the final results are.

Falsely yours,
Shameka Blake
