I am always humbled when a reader makes
a kind comment about my blog or seeks my advice
on a piece they are writing.
I can’t help but think back to a time when
I was scared to share my writing –
so you can imagine how great of a feeling it is
when I am able to connect with my audience in a positive way.
I also sincerely feel the same great feeling when I encourage others.
Whether it be a family member, friend or a mere acquaintance –
we shouldn’t hesitate to let them know that
we appreciate what they are doing.
There is no greater satisfaction for our creative selves 🙂
Don’t save the “good stuff” for tomorrow.
I never quite understood the point of storing “the good china”
in a cabinet to collect dust or
having a fully furnished room in your home that is just for show.
So when I stumbled across a few pieces of clothing in my closet
that I was saving for a “special occasion”,
not only did I feel like a hypocrite, but extremely silly as well.
We work hard every single day for the luxuries we have –
whether it be an expensive dish set, clothes or other things
we spoil ourselves with from time to time.
And while these are just things and certainly not what life is about
there is no reason why today isn’t as good as any to enjoy them.
After all, we deserve it.
