On nights like this, I am thankful for my friends. I am so lucky to have people in my life who are always going to encourage me no matter what negative crap I’m spewing. People who will find ways to encourage me even when they don’t know I need. I will always bend over backwards for the people in my life and it is nice to be reminded that those same people would do the same for me.
Tonight one of my friends sent me this picture:
He always knows how to find a way to make feel better and this night was no different. Sure he reads my blog but he had no idea at that moment I was actually sitting on the couch feeling sorry for myself because I couldn’t write. Then he sent me that and it reminded me for the thousandth time that I am not the first person to struggle with this.
I know I’ve talk about that before but it is a reoccurring thought for me. I constantly have to remind myself that everyone struggles and nothing comes easy.
I just have to hope that tomorrow will be better. Although, hoping doesn’t accomplish much. I just have to know it will get better. Hey, if you fake a smile long enough eventually it will be real…right? Is that how it works? Maybe not but I plan to fake it till I make it. Who said that?
(Side note: I am not encouraging people to fake who they are to be something other people think is better. But I am encouraging myself to fake being a writer until I actual am one.)
That’s how it works right?
