Brush it off!

I have decided that the wallowing is finished in this house! There will be no more feeling sorry for ourselves and no more moping. There are things in life that are beyond our control. When I give workshops, we call them "the window" items. They are things that we can't change. There are just some things that have to be accepted and move on. The other type of problems that I talk about are the "mirror" problems. These are things that we can change and have direct control over them.

Teacher terminations
Waiting for publisher responses
Other people's thoughts and feelings

Daily work produced
How much I write per day
My own health (both physically and mentally)

So that's it for today. Got to get ready for work.



  1. What a cool concept. Next time I'm at wit's end and about to blow, I'm making my own Window/Mirror list. Love it. Thank you. Looks like it helped you feel better to do that too!

  2. Very cool concept. Glad it's helping you through this difficult time. Things will get better.
