Quote for the Week
Here in Texas, and in many states, next week is back to school time. Tired moms and dads everywhere may be excused for a certain amount of rejoicing. Whether you are a work at home parent or one who treks to an outside place of business each day, now is a good time to take a deep breath and plan for your renewal.
You made it through a long, hot summer. Rebirth is at hand for those who want to take stock of where they want to be by year's end. The kids will be in school until Christmas so this is your last stand in the battle for that which will make you feel your year was well spent. For writers, this usually means a book manuscript.
If you fell by the wayside during the summer, now is the time to renew your commitment to the work in progress.
French dramatist Eugene Ionesco said: "I believe that in the history of art and of thought there has always been at every living moment of culture a will to renewal."
Always remember my motto: "It's never too late to live happily ever after." Happily ever after, to my way of thinking, means, in great part, working at something you love.
Rededicate. Recommit. Renew.
