This quote reminds me that when something’s a struggle in your life, when you have to overcome obstacles to find your dream, it makes it feel that much sweeter.
I know it’s sometimes hard to take the rejections and the no, this isn’t right for us. Looking back, if an editor would have said yes the first time I submitted a story, being a published author wouldn’t feel quite the same.
It’s more meaningful to me that I struggled for so long and then got to live my dream.
So, next time you get a rejection or a story isn’t working out like you planned, think about this quote.
