Frustration nudges you closer to your dream

My friends, chasing a dream can be exhausting. Sometimes you have good days and sometimes you have horrid moments. It's all a part of the struggle to achieve your hearts desire.

I hate admitting this but today was a bad day. You know the kind where you are so frustrated you just push aside the computer, put your head down on the table and try not to cry. I almost texted Janiel and Maegan because they are great in a time of story angst. However, my cat Lux vomited on my brand new plaid chucks so I was otherwise preoccupied, blasted cat.

I am slowly learning that the moments where you get overwhelmed by the demands on your shoulders is when a breakthrough is around the corner.

Yes, there are going to be days of struggle but accept the moments of frustration. They push you to work harder. The feeling of being overwhelmed nudges you closer to your dream and that is something beautiful.

This is so true. If things were always easy, the motivation of pushing harder to get there wouldn't be there. :)

You are sooo right. I'm down to the nitty-gritty with my MS. The beat readers are reading. My critters are still question some of last chapters to bring out more details. Two weeks ago my body is slammed with overwhelming fatigue. Not too mention, yesterday I had to have surgery. So I get closer to my finish line things start kicking me arse. Invisible gremlins?

Janiel Miller said...

Oy, Shelly. Surgery! I hope you're doing well. And I agree; the gremilns come out once we get close to doing something good. Like Kristina says, motivation. Right? :)

I've had too many bad days, when my black dog turns up and won't go away.
