It's true. I did. I've been having one of those discouraging days, er, weeks, um, actually months, well, . . . anyway, you know what I mean.
So, I whined and cried to my husband and my friend and my sister. My friend empathized, my non-writing sister tried to understand, and my husband told me how to fix my discouraged feelings. Although they tried, I still felt crummy.
Then I read this amazing article that smacked me. I knew I needed it, but in the back of the head? Really?
It woke me up and didn't hurt nearly as bad as I would have thought. It actually made me feel alive again.
The words that spoke to me simply said Choose Faith. Instead of floundering in the face of doubt, fear, the unknown and unseen, and pessimism, Choose Faith.
It seemed to say, "You know what you are supposed to do, so stop wallowing and do it."
So I did. And I feel so much better.
