Then I went back. And realized it was the PERFECT quote for the week.
There is so much that goes on in our day to day lives that really, we tend to forget that somewhere in there, stopping to enjoy what's going on around us is not a bad thing.
Okay, so your first draft sort of sucks - guess what? You're so totally not alone.
And you got a rejection letter too? I'm totally with you.
Car trouble? Yep.
Bad hair day? OMG, who hasn't??
But really, that's all sort of trivial in the grand scheme of things. Before you let something like uncooperative hair, a sink full of dishes or yes, even a rejection letter, ruin your whole day, week or even month, take a step back and look around.
I'm betting that after a deep breath, a hot bath and a nice cup of tea (Earl Grey for me, please), you'll see the good that's around you and you'll see how much MORE of it there is than you realized.
