I was leafing through a writing book while at the library with baby girl today.
We’d had our obligatory coffee/babycino hit, and she had gone off to, I later found out, find up to 10 dvds to borrow, while I just kept on leafing.
I was looking at something to grab my attention, and then something DID.
A quote at the top of the page. Regarding rejection:
“As the inventor Thomas Edison said, ‘Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.’ So, don’t give up too early. In fact, don’t give up at all. You may just be about to succeed.”
At a time when I’m deeply evaluating and questioning so much, in regards to writing and other parts of my life, this quote literally jumped out at me, from the most random yet perfect of pages.
So I closed it. And then I took it home. ❤✍📖
