The Universe Always Knows

A recent Note From The Universe:

You know, almost anything you feel you "have to" do, like cleaning and washing, can become a chore, even a drudgery; while those things that remain optional, like Disney World and Twister, can seem far more inviting, even fun.

So, as you go down the path of life, particularly when it seems you must force yourself through the motions, it just may help if you pause and give thought to the countless souls who'd give most anything for the option of even your "chores."

Life... it can sometimes be like one of those really, really "good problems," huh?

I got this in my email while slogging through what feels like the most painful and tedious and frustrating revision of my writing life. It made me realize that a year ago, I would've killed to have a finished draft of a novel complete with expert revision notes and people eagerly waiting to read it.

So... I guess it's all about perspective, huh?


  1. Great post! I'm kind of in the same boat. While I don't have expert notes (aside from the two of you, and those are pretty darn awesome) this revision is painful. Keep slogging! Can't wait to see the changes.

  2. We live the charmed life, don't we? :D I am feeling way more gratitude right now!!

  3. This Universe quote stuck w/ me this week too. I thought about it as I was complaining about grocery shopping for like the 5th time in a week, and after reading that quote, I checked myself. I'm so grateful to be able to put healthy food and clean water on the table each day for my family, when there are people all over the world that can't just run to the store and buy good food. The Universe quotes are awesome and often keep me in check! Thanks for sharing it.

  4. Great thoughts - It is a matter of perspective. And from now on, I'll have a cheerful one. :)

  5. Sometimes we all need a reminder. Don't lose sight of the goal!
