Yesterday was a long day. I juggled two writing assignments, paid self-employment taxes, spent hours marketing my business, walked an insurance adjuster through the house to work on our water leak claim and met with the water mitigation company.
It’s been busy.
After dinner, I sat down to tackle one last rough draft for the day. I researched the Syrian refugee crisis and was asked to put together a piece that highlights the kindness and good coming out of such a horrid situation. Whew.
The draft is simmering.
Now I’m sitting here thinking that my day was easy as pie. I ate a hot dinner. I’m sitting under a sound roof. I have electricity to power my computer and phone. I have clean clothes on my back. And, tonight I will sleep in a bed, not a makeshift cot.
Sometimes all it takes is one assignment to put things into perspective. Every single day you have something to be thankful for. Take a minute and count your blessings.
Until next time,
