How many people seize the moment? Do we honestly belief we have the power to create our lives? Or are we following a script? I’d like to think I had the wisdom to know I could write my destiny. I did not. What I had was dogged determination. All it took for me to rise to the occasion was someone telling me I couldn’t accomplish something. They may as well have waved a red flag in my face.
Tell me I can’t do something and I’ll prove you wrong. I remember my first rejection letter from a publisher. The letter made my day. The letter said, “Dear author…”. I didn’t care that my book got rejected, only that the publisher called me an author. The smallest glimmer of hope and I knew hard work would get me published. Rough drafts, editing, more editing, I didn’t care. I viewed it as part of the process.
I’ve always known my life was and is a work in progress. Every day is an opportunity to achieve greater peace, happiness, love or whatever my heart desires. Good morning sunshine.
