Silly Self

Dear Fellow Dreamer,

Have you ever been feeling down on yourself, or just in life? When this happened did you ever think to yourself,

'Hey, you don't have it that bad. This is silly, self. Stop it.

Silly self.

Be happy.'

Well, apparently...I have.

While it's true that we each have our own trials, I guess there's someone out there who has a trial that I wouldn't be able to handle. Maybe instead of having a personal pity party, I could seek someone out to help. Even if it seems to be a small act, it's still an act. I'll still have accomplished something.

This reminds me of a quote from Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility,

"It is not what we say, or feel, that makes us who we are; it is what we do...or fail to do."


This quote can be applied to other goals we have in life.

No failure, no matter how great, is worth dwelling upon.

We are worth more than our failures, though our failures do make up parts of who we are. It is also the courage to continue.

"...it is what we do...or fail to do."

We got have this.

  1. You have a great attitude, Erin! Every one has down days! When you do, try listing your blessings or thinking of all that you do have. Or just remember that we all have our own plan on this earth.all of our experiences are for our good. just be excited for what tomorrow might bring. that is what i do. Love you!

    and p.s. if any of your family read my blog post, i am totally fine. just so struggles at work with management. i thought it was so appropriate that it fit so well with the Horton Hears a Who story.
