Cathie at charmstrongbooks.com has nominated me for this award and I am honored to try to take a crack at the question she presented to me.
Here’s the question: Do you have a quote or motto that is meaningful to you in some way, or by which you lead your life? If so, can you tell us what it is and why?
First – let’s get biblical for a second.
Mathew 6:34 has been a go to for inspiration for me.
Holman Christian Standard Bible: Therefore don’t worry about tomorrow, because tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
I am not a great Christian (who is), but I try to be. I found this quote some years back and it just sang to me. It (to me anyways) just reminds me to deal with one day at a time. Tomorrow is tomorrow and today is today. Spend your current time trying to enjoy it as much as you can.
Second – Jimmy Buffett
The song “No Plane on Sunday” speaks volumes to me. It’s all about making the best of a bad situation by not getting too strung out about things that are out of our control. So, if I get in a long line at the store or face countless rejection letters I just let this song ring in my ears. No use getting upset. Just roll with it and move on.
I want to nominate Laura, Kim, and Sherry for this award. All three of them have been a great supporter of mine and each of them have been such a positive force in my life that I wrote three character roles for them in my short story Need to Feed. It is a small way to honor each of them, but I thought it was the best way to do it. So, Laura, Kim, and Sherry. Here are your two questions.
