Sleeping Better at Night

When you seek out a challenging and fulfilling purpose in life, sometimes it bites you in ass. You chase your dreams, but then you end up living temporarily at your parents house and then feel the need to temporarily seek psychiatric assistance.

But it’s only for a little while.

I had forgotten this saying, because I was being pushed around by problems — major and minor ones.

Bills.

Finances.

Housing situation.

Relationships.

Kids waking up when they shouldn’t be.

Looking in the mirror and realizing that you probably now need to do facials.

Receiving the It’s-Not-You-It’s-Me polite rejection letters.

Trying to avoid the Children of the Corn Parents at my kids preschool, but sometimes not quite making it out in time.

Running out of chocolate.

But I’m glad that I got reminded of this little lesson. It helps me sleep better at night.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Dreaming

Dreaming …

 

I stand there at Barnes & Noble … dreaming.

I dream of the day that I no longer get the “it’s not you it’s me” letter from agents.

I dream of the day when I no longer get upset because I can’t believe books were published by Bravo Reality TV Stars and people buy them.

I dream of the day when I finish my second novel and someone other than myself thinks it’s awesome enough to publish.

I dream of the day when I walk out of an agent’s office as happy as Will Smith does at the end of  his Pursuit of Happyness movie.

I dream of the day I get to feel the Lero Lero Factor around those that didn’t believe I could do it.

I dream of the day that I walk into a Barnes & Noble and my book is sitting on the shelf … any shelf … even the 30% off shelf.
