Consider the possibilities
“Sometimes the place you are used to is not the place you belong.” ~William Wheeler, screenwriter
It’s not too early to start thinking about our New Year’s resolutions. Or maybe we should start reframing them as “possibilities” rather than resolutions? Maybe we could begin by simply considering something new to try — rather than resolving or correcting a problem.
Today’s quote reminds me that I’d like to explore new avenues in my writing career, just for one example. I tend to stick with “safe” markets — familiar publications in which I’m comfortable or where my work is typically published rather than rejected. These are the places I’m “used to.”
Just because something feels comfortable doesn’t mean it’s the best place for us. And sometimes staying “safe” can keep us from exploring something else. More often than not, we all can do better than “safe.” Where do you want to be in 2023? ~Cindy La Ferle
