Most of you reading this post are aware that I'm a cheerful, optimistic person who refuses to let disappointing defeats get me down. Well, given that it's Monday morning (optimal time that agents send out rejections) I decided to begin the week by watching one of my favorite episodes from Whose Line Is It Anyway. I assure you, after seeing Drew Carey's reaction at the end of this clip, I completely forgot about checking my email inbox.
And other things that make me smile...
Conner & Carlie during their pre-school graduation.
Carlie was thrilled about saying her part in the ceremony (it was about flowers, her favorite thing).
Conner was so proud of his medal and diploma!
At the ballpark, Catie did an excellent job playing shortstop! (Are those not the cutest socks you've ever seen?)
YEAH...Conner got a homerun!
And little caboose, Courtney Erin, enjoyed swinging at the playground.
Each day is full of ups and downs, including rejection letters from prospective literary agents. It's how we handle these situations that moves us forward, one step closer to reaching our goals. In other words, finding moments to smile is indeed a better option than getting in a tizzy over something completely out of our hands.
Laughter is a very powerful thing! I'd love to know what makes you smile! Tory
