To those of you who celebrate Thanksgiving- I hope you have a wonderful holiday! Happy Thanksgiving!

If you don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, I wish you a joyous week full of great things!

For me, Thanksgiving is a day to really appreciate and feel gratitude for your life and the little blessings. I think it is always a good practice to take time during your day to think about what you are grateful for and the things you found happiness in that day.

I’ll leave you with some quotes to help inspire you in your journey this week.


From Neil Gaiman’s ‘Make Good Art’

“The things I’ve done that worked the best were the things I was the least certain about, the stories where I was sure they would either work, or more likely be the kinds of embarrassing failures people would gather together and talk about until the end of time. They always had that in common: looking back at them, people explain why they were inevitable successes. While I was doing them, I had no idea. I still don’t. And where would be the fun in making something you knew was going to work? And sometimes the things I did really didn’t work. […] But I learned as much from them as I did from the things that worked.”

“So be wise, because the world needs more wisdom, and if you cannot be wise, pretend to be someone who is wise, and then just behave like they would.”


From Chris Guillebeau’s ‘The $100 Startup’

“The most important lesson in the whole book: Don’t waste your time living someone else’s life.”


If you guys are doing NaNoWriMo this year- Just a little more to go! You can do this thing! I’m certainly struggling more this year than last year, but I have faith that I will get it done and I know you guys will, too! I’ll be sharing more about my 2014 NaNo journey in a few weeks.
