long shot - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
It's the long shot or certain death, your next step decides which path you walk from the fork onwards.
By the hour, by the year, by the tear... that is how we measure the long shot. Win every battle you can. We go in expecting to win. Then, regardless of the outcome, we get back to work right away.

One of the reasons it is a long shot, is not only the chance of victory (in coloquial parlour), yet because the only way to neutralise negative chaos is with positive chaos. Additionally, brains are billions of neural connections and to travel from an "aha" moment to solid and reliable change takes a long time. As we travel, folks will be at differing stages of neural healing and be negotiating challenging personal circumstances of their own.

So, if you need to pour a tall glass of something strong, now is the time. We need solid resolve. Team Hug, hands in, on three...
Welcome to Team Hug, the "Broke Avengers." There is no pay, no overtime and very little thanks. There is struggle, there is suffering and you probably won't live long enough to see the end result (the good place we are building). So, naturally, you're in. I thought so. Here is your hug, you earned it and then some.
