Hey! Progress is occurring in the sidebar! How is everyone else doing with their own personal May Scramble?
At the bookstore on Thursday night I made a wish on that special place between Alexander and Anderson. It’s a place that I rarely let the longing carry me. But that night I had written over 2,000 words and I claimed it as my reward for the huge effort. And with a whispered wish, I said one thing, “I am strong enough.”
So many things about the publishing process are beyond the control of a writer, but one thing isn’t: attitude. Last week Elana “Just Got a Book Deal!” Johnson and Carolyn V. blogged about something near and dear to my heart: tenacity and attitude. They said, “You can do hard things.”
And this is true. If you believe in something hard enough, than you can do the work it takes. You CAN do hard things. And what’s more, you have done hard things in your life before, haven’t you? It’s just the next step to overcoming and making things HAPPEN. Of course there are days/times/moments when I think I can’t do the hard things. That the obstacles against me are insurmountable. But there is always someone out there that has a taller wall to climb than I do. I take courage from them when I need it.
Here are two I want to share:
I am strong enough. And YOU are strong enough. We CAN do hard things.
Q4U: What hard things have you done? What hard things do you want to do?
