    Just Try

    The Recovering Pessimist: Just Try -- Do you really want to go through life wondering if you could've succeeded at something if you had just tried? What's the worst that could happen? You fail. But at least you'll know. | www.therecoveringpessimist.me #amwriting #recoveringpessimist #optimisticpessimistMany of my accomplishments happened because of two words:

    Just Try

    Many of those accomplishments were out of my reach for several reasons (e.g., money, skills, etc.) & not worth the effort. It would’ve been easier to wave the white flag. But that sliver of optimism encouraged me to give it a try.


    Because the worst thing that could happen is that I fail, which sucks. But there’s something worse than failure: Going through life wondering if I would’ve succeeded at something if I had tried.

    I'd rather try and fail, than not try and later realize I could've succeeded.

    Besides, if it means that much to you, it’s worth the effort, right?

    Stay ready…you know the rest,
