The sun sets on another day…
Snow is coming, and the days are shorter and shorter. Sunset today was, well, cold, and dark, but there is a promise of more, and that promise is one that will not be broken.
I saw a post on Facebook tonight. An author was talking about selling a million books and giving advice on how everyone should do it. No, I have not sold a million books, so I do not have the same experience. (I did compare resumes and that was interesting) Their remarks were meant to help in some way, but as I read it I thought of all the authors starting out, trying hard, working hard, that have good works, and how they just made them feel.
I would like to apply it all to life if I could for a moment. You deserve something. In my opinion the biggest thing you deserve is not to be beaten down., There are lots of other opinions but in reality we may deserve much, but many get little. There is a quote from a movie that says , “You deserve a lot, and it is likely more than you settle for…”. Tonight that resonated with me not because I deserve more, but because it is a true statement.
For the author who sold a million books, you deserve to sell a million books because you did well, but for those who sell less, you deserve your success because you took the time and effort to create something from nothing. Don’t let people take your wins away from you. Set your goals and find a way to win daily.
For me, I deserve a lot, and I settle often, but I keep pushing and find a way. For any authors, keep writing, and for everyone in general, don’t settle and instead make your world yours, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and I hope you know you are awesome…
