This was a very encourage and inspiring post to read. This is the type of stuff that we bloggers/writers need to hear. it displays the beautiful tension that exists when we bring the whole of our hearts and hard work of our hands into the harvest fields of writing and blogging. It is important for us to enter this farmland with diligence and patience on our mind as well as joy and a relaxed, calm soul. May we find victory and set backs as welcomed part of the experience as we plant and harvest the creative thoughts, desires, and ideas within.
Life has many irrefutable truths. One? We get out of life what we put into it. We will get out of our writing what we invest. We cannot expect large returns from a social media platform if we rely on robots (automation) and connect randomly and half-heartedly. Social media is about relationships and being fair-weather friends has limited effectiveness.
Sure, there are flukes, people who run face-first into blind luck. But, one thing I’ve learned is the harder (and smarter) I work, the “luckier” I get ;).
When we take hold of a dream, we are assigned a sort of spiritual plot of land. Depending on the dream will depend on the plot. If we want to grow fresh peaches for our family, we don’t need a thousand acres. But, if we wish to make a living as a peach grower? We’ll have much more land and work ahead.
