Motivational Monday - on the journey

It was a beautiful day in Portland yesterday, so we headed to the Japanese Garden to get our fill of peace, calm and tranquility after a busy back-to-school week.

The photo above is from a plaque we found in the gift store. So often as writers, we are wishing things. Wishing to finish the book, wishing to find an agent, wishing to sell the book, wishing for big sales... always hoping and wishing.

Of course wishes and dreams are wonderful things. But not if they pull us down into a place that makes us unhappy. This week, I want to stop and enjoy the view from where I am on my journey.

There may be other places I want to go, but where I am right now is a good place. A satisfying place. A happy place.

I want to remember that all I have all I really need. And there is so much here to be thankful for.
