Yesterday there was a little pressure as I began my commitment to observation and writing. Was there anything to report? My day was filled with my own personal shortcomings. I had really been focusing on the negative. At the end of the evening, as I reflected, I realized that unexpected gifts can come along to fill in the gaps where I had failed. I had spoken with two friends that day who offered support when I most needed it. Both phone calls were unsolicited. Sometimes you receive an unexpected gift and it can be a reminder to try harder yourself, especially when you think you are failing miserably. Try harder because other people are trying too.
