"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!
