#QuoteOfTheDay

The truth is you don't know what is going to happen tomorrow. Life is a crazy ride, and nothing is guaranteed. ~Eminem

*******

You never know what life is going to throw at you. Sometimes it's fun stuff. Sometimes not so fun stuff.

They key is to hang in there. Face off with whatever's on your path with the trust that things will work out.

Stay strong, my friends.

#QuoteOfTheDay


Patience is the companion of wisdom. ~Saint Augustine
**********
Waiting is rarely fun.

When I'm waiting for something–word from a publisher, a book review, recovering from an injury–whatever it is, my mind can wander.

And it's not always to a good place.

"I'm losing good training time."
"I'm a terrible writer."
"They're going to hate my book."

You get the point.

When your patience is getting a good workout, the key is to stay positive and focused.

When waiting for something to happen in the writing world (book deals, edits, &/or reviews), I try and write more books. Keep working on the craft. Support my fellow authors.

While healing from an injury, I do what I can to stay healthy. Like when I broke my foot, I lifted weights with my arms, worked on my core strength.

Everything we face in life, whether it's good, bad, or neutral, can teach us something.

If we let it.

Stay strong, my friends.

#QuoteOfTheDay

We don't develop courage by being happy every day. We develop it by surviving difficult times and challenging adversity. ~Barbara De Angelis

*****

Survival. Sometimes it feels like you won't or can't survive what you're facing. And that's okay to feel that. Just know that you can survive it. And then, once you're on the other side of the difficult time, you'll be a stronger person.

Stay strong, my friends.

Embrace your weirdness! ~Cara Delevingne
******
We're all different–even a little weird in our own ways. But that's exciting! If we were all the same, life would be pretty boring if you ask me!

Some people may frown on different, even bully or berate people who are "weird" in their eyes.
But they're just insecure, scared, maybe even a little threatened by those who are different.

Don't give them a second glance.

Be strong, my friends.

#QuoteOfTheDay

Life’s too short for regrets. ~Nicholas Hoult

********

Regret is only good for about a minute or two, while you’re learning from it.  

Then you have to move on.

If you stay stuck on regret, it can lead to all kinds of not fun things like anger, depression, and so on. 

Regrets will come up, it’s a fact of life. So, feel it for a second, learn from it, and then move on as a stronger more experienced person. 

Stay strong, my friends.
