When life gets too overwhelming and I start to feel down, I try to practice gratitude to stay positive. So, I make myself focus on the good things that happened in the past week that made me smile.
- Had a nice lunch with children's illustrator and Twitter buddy Wendy Martin. We've been trying to hook up for a while and life kept getting in the way. We did wait for each other for at least 20 minutes in different parts of the place we were meeting though!
- Met some great peeps at a Biznik meetup. Got some great encouragement and advice from another very nice graphic designer in the area.
- Got my first article published on the Biznik site – and it's featured on the home page today!
- Got another great testimonial from a happy client!
- Thought like an author and got a book idea for PiBoIdMo from an unpleasant situation.
