Granola Inspiration

Just a quick thought to share with you today.  Inspiration can strike in the strangest of places.  The other day, I was opening a box of pumpkin flax granola (yes it's as good as it sounds) and something on the inner tab caught my eye.  When I took a closer look, I realized it was the following quote:

"Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds you plant."
~ Robert Louis Stevenson

Perhaps I'm getting too caught up in the daily word count race, and let myself get too discouraged by not meeting certain goals when I planned.  Instead I need to focus on what I'm building - even if it is a slow, and sometimes painful process.  Day by day, I'm planting seeds.  And I have to plant, before I can harvest.  It is the natural order of things.

I don't know why the idea struck me with such force at that moment.  It's certainly not new or original, but it was what I needed at that moment.  And from a box of granola, of all places!

  1. That is a fabulous thought! Thanks for sharing. Summer has been killer on getting anything accomplished with writing but I'm planting more important seeds with my cute boys. Good luck with your planting!
