{quotable thursdays}


{steps}
As we near the end of January, we might begin to feel that all our new year's resolutions are fading away as the steps towards them become harder and harder.
I have been reflecting a lot recently on the struggles I faced on the road to where I am--job application after job application, rejected articles, mean-spirited peer review feedback etc... We often focus on the negative, but each job application was practice towards a better application, each peer review advice led me to better writing & a better argument... 
The smallest steps in research--trolling through an archive & choosing to record some insignificant detail-- are the things that shape the larger project in the end (the insignificant often becomes the significant).
So hang in there, and keep walking, even if you're only taking baby steps...
{take that step}

{Those small steps might just lead you to Pemberley!}
