Not giving a crap.
Seriously. If you have something going on in your life which is vexing you considerably? Just stop caring about it. It's great.
Like me? I want to be a writer. So I wrote a novel.
I've been trying to get my work published before I finished the novel. I write articles and columns and short stories and just, everything. And people just reject it all the time. Like, everyday. Constantly.
So now, I have this novel and I'm going to try to get it published. And some people I know told me that I have ovaries of steel or whatever for doing that and I you know what I realized?
I. Just. Don't. Care.
If twenty people reject it, I'll send it to twenty-one more.
If it's good enough, someone will want it. It might take ten years, but someone will want it.
If it's not good enough, I'll write something else. Know why?
BECAUSE I DON'T CARE!
Maybe the ragweed and pollen is making me high today, but seriously? I feel good. I don't care about rejection. I know I'll get rejected! I totally know it.
All I care about is that I'M FINISHED WITH THE FREAKING NOVEL and I'm sending it.
I'm sending it y'all.
And it feels good!
