Day 4-The Meaning of your Blog/Tumblr Name

Both of my names have a pretty easy background to them.

My Tumblr name is melrose13, which is a combination of three things. First, my first name, Melissa. Second, my favourite flower, roses. Third, the number 13, which is my lucky number. So I smushed them all together to come up with melrose13.

My blog name is Courage to Continue, which comes from my favourite Winston Churchill quote, which is:

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”

I love this quote because it reminds me that no matter what happens, no matter if I fail or succeed, the most important thing is to keep going, to learn from my mistakes, and to continue on.

Anyways, that’s the story behind both my blog names. Also, feel free to check out my Tumblr blog, I mostly just reblog things I find funny, but you might like it!
