Enjoy the little things in life...

Like this 14" tall mini foal...

I find myself making big deals of small stuff a lot lately.  I have agonized over stuff that shouldn't amount to a hill of beans.  I have worried myself sick over stuff that should be just an "" in my daily existence.  I find that when I worry less, things seem to happen in their proper order...and sometimes they even surprise me.

It's time for me to just "get over it" and move along.  Don't sweat the small stuff, because all you do is trip over it on your road to the rest of your life.  Take the little horse above.  He can't get much done on his own, but you put a few dozen of those little babies in front of a cart and they can drag things forward a few feet.  So, you still get where you are going...just a bit slower.

I have been busy revising and resubmitting some of my previously-published novels now that I have my rights back.  I will sub them to my favorite publisher...and if they aren't accepted, then hey...I go to Kindle to self-pub them.  No sweat.  New spiffy titles...and voila!  I refuse to give up.

Take care, my dear friends...hugs and happy weekend!

  1. Great attitude to adopt!
    Best wishes Fran.

    PS I love that foal!

    1. I figured it was about time to pull me head out and start moving on...thanks!

  2. Having a positive attitude and trying not to sweat the small stuff are sure not easy to do all the time!
    "I refuse to give up" are truly great words to live by, Fran! Hugs back to ya.

    1. Thanks, dear! I am realizing that standing stagnant won't help anyone.

  3. You should've skipped the publisher and went straight for Kindle. Why give someone money when you don't have to.
    I got the rights back to 7 books and 5 are self-published. I'm working on the other 2. :)

    1. I agree. And that is still an option. I have lots more that won't fit with my publisher. I know that I would make more money, but I have a great relationship with my publisher and it's a partnership. They gave me my start, and as long as they make me money, I don't mind sharing the wealth. :)
