“Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.” ~Brian Tracy
|"I am a writer. Here me roar!"|
If you say you're a writer, then write. See it. Do it. It's that simple.
As writers, we sometimes lose perspective along the way, slipping into the dark abyss of "what-the-heck-am-I-doing-land." Many of the great artists that have come before us are familiar with this dark place. I believe for some true artists, it may be a constant battle. It's a cold, lonely place, a place where you may feel there's no turning back. But there is.
All you have to do is coach your way back through the tangled web of negativity. As Nike would say, just do it. Turn around and walk away. Don't look back, because the negativity, which spreads like a infectious disease in artists, will suck you back down into the abyss.
In Candy's land, I too, struggle with the battle of staying positive. It's only natural IF you tend to allow your focus to stray toward the negative. Unfortunately, that's the way some of us artists are made. I'm not trying to sound preachy, please don't think that of me. I'm merely expressing a side of the artist I feel some of you may share with me.
In a world, where sometimes the possible seems impossible, writers MUST learn to focus on the positive and be thankful for all that comes their way.
“All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become.”~Buddha
