Irresistible urge to break the streak

As of today I have been writing in an unbreakable streak of 999 days. Tomorrow would turn into a whole new level breaking the four-digit barrier.

It goes without saying that I never thought I would make this far. But now, when I'm finally here, I'm not sure I want to break that barrier.

While keeping up the streak is good incentive to keep going, some days it might also feel a liability. I just have to write even if I don't feel like it just for the sake of not breaking he streak.

Now would be a good point for a streak. A thousand days is a lot. On the other hand, it's reachable. As I have already demonstrated. It's already a formidable achievement. And even if I break it now and do another 999 days after it I would still have written almost two thousand days in total, which also is quite a feat.

Thousand days is also a more achievable goal. And a round number that feels special enough. If I keep going, the next meaningful step would be ten thousand days. While three years might feel a long time, three decades is a completely different timespan.

So, should I keep going, or take a break and start over?
