Writing, Reading, and Smiling . . . It's Contagious.

Finding the Passion

OF LATE, I’ve been doubting my writing, my career, and my life. Then I had the following conversation last week with a new friend of mine:

NEW FRIEND: So, you write and design books for yourself, as well as for others?

ME: Uh-huh.

NEW FRIEND: That’s cool.

ME: Well, I don’t know if anyone else would think it’s cool. . . .

NEW FRIEND: Are you passionate about it?

ME: Yes.

NEW FRIEND: Then what does it matter what anyone else thinks?

Enough said.


As always, I love to hear from you.
If you’re in the cyber-neighborhood, drop me a line.

In the meantime, keep writing, reading, and smiling.
It’s contagious.

Yes, yes, yes yes. In the immortal words of Eminem, you only got one shot. ;-)

Thanks for the comment, Lou!

And, yes, we only have ONE shot in this life. We need to shed the self-doubt and the negative criticism of others and just BE.
