Every So Often

We all have dreams. But every so often, we have to take a minute to stop and wonder if those dreams are meant for us, or us for them, or whatever.

Every so often, our dreams take over our lives, and then we wonder what we were thinking when we started dreaming like that anyway.

Every so often, we decide to take a break, turn a corner, or do something differently than we planned.

And every so often, thinking outside the box helps us make more progress than anything else we’ve tried, renewing our sense of creativity, our sense of adventure, our ability to dream big.

Every so often, we are given a lesson in succeeding, rather than one in failing.

Every so often, we win.

And then it all becomes worth it.

When’s the last time you won?

Oh, that's a tough question to answer at 5:30 am. Maybe reading a few pages from a Ellen Hopkins novel in verse before I edit more own stuff (not that I'm writing a novel in verse). It's helped my writing in many ways, believe it or not.

I can't think of anything else right now. My brain is still asleep.

Oh my gosh. I don't know. When I didn't over eat. That's a tough one for me. Especially since I'm working on those last ten pounds. ;)

I'm thankful that I have the opportunity to go for my dreams- in a sense, I consider that a win.

Probably the last time someone surprised me telling me they'd read and loved my book. =) That makes it feel worth it. But even just finishing a project makes it worth it too!
