The Middle

The middle of a thing is the worst part.

The beginning is fresh and packed with possibility. The end has a feeling of accomplishment and the potential for praise.

But the middle just strings you along. The middle is where you stop practicing the guitar, stop writing your essay, give up on learning to program.

The middle is where you can get lost. If you can get through the middle, you can get to the end.
