On particularly rough days, when doubt is easily harbored and I'm certain I can't possibly go on, I like to remind myself that my record for getting through bad days so far is 100%...and that's pretty good.

At piece with you.
We touch, we talk
Leave a place to walk
For tomorrow's traveler
We turn to chalk.
