Ben & Jerry’s Flashdrive:
Just as we rejoiced with those who rejoiced yesterday, today we will weep with those who weep.
So crack out your bunny slippers and bon bons, today is a day to deal with those disappointments along the writing journey.
I’ve worn those same slippers many times and lifted that scoop of Ben & Jerry’s to my lips. Something I learned from two of my treasured friends on this journey, Lisa Jordan and Beth K. Vogt, is that it is okay to take a day to grieve.
Give yourself a day or two to admit you’re discouraged and sad. It is totally normal. Your dreams are big because God gave them to you, but once in a while there are set backs on the journey.
Tomorrow, pick yourself back up and get back to work. But for today, let yourself grieve.
You have cheered others on and been a good sport, but disappointment still stings. I have great news for you.
IT WON’T LAST FOREVER!
As sure as you are wearing your bunny slippers, your day of success will come. So, today’s party is for you!
Tell us your favorite Kleenex Party Treat, Leave a Word of Encouragement or a Scripture to encourage those who are having a Kleenex Party Type of Day.
