The Grind


The grind is where it’s really at.

Here there are no front runners, no cheerleaders reminding you of how great you were back at the start.

Here your only friend is the strength of your will and the steady of your conviction.

The grind is the gap between goals.

The space between, “I’m going to.” & ”I did.”

It’s the silent resolve you make on stair number 273, and all the stories between 1 and 100.

It’s learning to say, “I can’t, I’m sorry” and the loss of a friendship.

It’s having to say, “Goodbye,” to say, “Hello” to the peace of humble beginnings.

It’s the right to say, “I earned this.”
