Postscript to insecurity
I have been gone over the holidays and away from bloggydom, but just before Christmas, my writing started flowing again on my novel, so I am not feeling particularly insecure right now. I know it ebbs and flows and in the times of ebbing, I am unconsciously still working, so I've learned to relax about it.
In the wake of the tragedies that occurred just before the end of the year, I have come to understand keeping things in perspective at a much deeper level than ever before. I am learning to ask myself, how important is it in the scheme of things, when I get upset about something. I don't mean our feelings aren't valid. They are. And we are human. We will and do have feelings. But for me, keeping things in perspective helps me manage them much better.
How about you?
