And so on this eighth day, I am rather weary.  Challenges can be taxing.  I’m assessing the situation and my energy to stay for the long haul.  There are 22 more days to go.  Having made strong statements and commitments, I have to go the distance.  Doing my best each day is all I can ask of myself.

My aim from the start is to build on what I have accomplished each day.  I do not want to regress.  So far, so good.  Each day I have gotten up, dressed up and showed up.  The bed gets made.  The dishes get done.  The floors vacuumed of dog hairs.  Some days, they are done better than other days. But it is the best that I can do at the time.

Some days I feel better, have more energy, more pumped and more profound.  Other days, like today, I am not.  But I put one foot in front of the other and move.


Look at how far I have come, one step at a time.  And here I am, tap, tapping away at my keyboard, words spilling on the screen.  I’m singing a song of hope and faith.

About hafong

Hello! My name is (Leung) Hafong alias Lily Leung. You always say the last name first….that is the Chinese way. That is my partner lurking behind me. Since this is my blog, I won’t mention his name. But this is a rather cool picture. You see me and yet you don’t…sort of the way I feel about myself most of my life. So this blog is a self-exploration, an archeology dig of some sort. My tools…..words of a thousand or so at a sitting. I will try for that.

  1. Good job Lily! Keep it up. You’re doing great! 😀

  2. Blogging can be a bugger! But I like reading your blogs, you are funny, playful and just a really nice person, in spite of your own words that describe you as too serious. Keep going, you will get addicted.

    Yes, you are doing great. I love the picture that you used. I loved the picture it leaves in my mind.

      Thanks! My partner and I had gathered those shoes washed up on the beach in Ghana and made the steps before we left a couple of years ago. Memories!
