Success is in the journey
I fell into my own personal meltdown last week. I decided to quit writing fiction because of a rejection.
Pretty stupid huh? Especially since I'm the glass-is-half-full kind of person. I even expected this particular rejection. Knew it was coming. Not a surprise at all.
So what happened?
Fortunately I'm reading one of my husband's books for school called No Excuses. I wanted to keep up with him so I read another chapter. The point?
Our success is in the journey.
As long as I keep writing, I'm already a success.
Now back up. After a nice crying jag, I tried to imagine life without writing. Really tried. Thought about taking up something easier. Something that would fulfill me.
And you know what happened. I'm still here. Trying to remember that I am successful in my trying. In my journey. And what a journey it is.
When was the last time you wanted to quit? What turned you back on the path?
