hi there.

Welcome to my blog. I'm spending a year capturing happiness, and I invite you to come along as I journey toward a more joyful living. I also write about travel, food, and matters of the spirit. Hope you enjoy!

Exceeding expectations

Exceeding expectations

By noon today, I'd already heard that three people were not going to make it to writers group, and by late afternoon, another person would add to that number. I know not to take such things personally, but for some reason I do. It made me really sad to think we'd be down a third of our numbers.  

Long story short: I love my group! It turned out to be as great of a discussion as always, with everyone offering such kind praise and helpful feedback. I leave every meeting feeling like I want to hug the world.  

Also, peripherally, because of writing group today, I felt like I ought to attempt the writing prompt I assigned, so I did. Granted, I wrote it in the two hours before we met, and it wasn't a grand piece or the next great American novel, but it was words on a page. Words on a page is better than no words at all. And every time I do put words on a page, it makes me feel better.
