A friend called me this afternoon. She was feeling very low about her career.
But then she remembered:
Her kids were doing great.
Her new idea for a book was exciting.
She is in a great marriage. Has great friends. She is not broke. Food on the table. She can afford the new shoes (we have both) been coveting.
No matter how bleak/sad/slow things may seem, there is always something to be proud of.
Celebrate your process and your life.
