The manuscript is going to be late. However, it’s so much better. I hope my editor thinks it’s worth it.
Holidays can be stressful. Breathe. This time next week, Thanksgiving will be over. In a month and a half, Christmas and New Year’s will be over. Take one day at a time. Be kind to you. Do something every day that makes you smile. If you’re able, do something every day that makes you laugh. I know it’s difficult sometimes. Been there. Done that. Burned the T-shirt.
You are imperfect. Good. You make mistakes. Good. You are capable of change. Good. Remember, you change every day. As you read this, you are 24 hours older than you were at this time yesterday.
Take each day one at a time, one moment at a time if necessary.
