Clients who ignore emails, don’t read emails, basically ignore everything … Until they want something urgently.

"Some of the most amazing people in the world were not perfect; they were scarred by suffering, hardships, losses and imperfections. But, when they recovered, they were stronger, wiser, and more loving and compassionate. Your life is going to get better in the proper time, and you will be stronger and more at peace than ever before."
Sometimes I think it would be nice to be published instead of ghostwriting all the time. Maybe not in my cards … maybe that’s just fear talking. But when I see my articles circulate around social media I have to push away that innate urge: “Hey! That’s my work!”
In the meantime, I will write to P.
"Get yourself out of the way, and let joy have more space."
"Sometimes someone will make a premature, hasty judgment without knowing all the facts, and they will say some hurtful inconsiderate things. In their own mind, they believe they are doing the right thing by “standing up” for what is right. It is sincere and they are not the villain. We can’t blame them: because they just don’t know. They have been fed certain lies from a perpetuated false narrative, or they are speaking from an incomplete paradigm that cannot empathize with the many layers of a complex situation. It does not mean he or she is a bad person, but that gossip is really intoxicating even to the best of people.
We must not be so hard on someone who doesn’t have all the information. It doesn’t help to be rude to our “enemies.” Not everyone will be happy with our decisions, even if we get to explain our side of the story. Be gracious to gossipers, be kind to those who do not understand, and stay humble. I believe that the truth will always win, that hard work pays off, and that our integrity comes from both our actions AND our reactions. Trust God, love others, keep above the drama."
Decidedly so the best part of my day. (She waits at the window for him.)
