Success is falling 9 times and getting up 10

The title of this post is a quote from Winston Churchill. It's a quote I've found very useful.

I didn't wake up to a great start today... I woke up with a splitting head ache, a pile of very unwelcome bills waiting for me on the door mat. I went and checked my shops and I sold an item on etsy, and it really made my day :) I think anyone who sells things they've made them selves probabaly gets a bit of a buzz when they sell something, wether they've sold hundreds of items, or it's their second sale. To know that someone likes your item enough to spend their hard earned money on it is a great feeling. It reminds me to keep trying. To not give up on what I want to do with my life.

Since I finished university I have been looking for a day job. Something. Anything. Just to pay the bills, so I can concentrate on working towards doing something creative to earn a living, and build that up. (I specialised in Illustration) but thanks to the recession even 'basic' jobs are hard to come by, and so I'm still looking. That's where the quote in the title comes in. I hope maybe it will be useful to someone else...
