What’s Your Miracle Dust?

That stuff you sprinkle when you need to move on and smile?
I saw this picture and I laughed out-loud. I think I was sitting at my desk about to take lunch and I’m not the quietest person in the world. My coworker must believe I’m nuts at times, mumbling to myself, singing to myself, whistling, oh well. He’s probably used to it by now.
But, miracle dust is a great thought. How some days we can feel overwhelmed with emotion, feeling like we’re getting no where and we wonder at times, is it worth it? Should I give up? Should I just be okay with where I am?
Miracle dust is the stuff in our lives that breaks up a train of bad thoughts. A really great memory from the past. A moment you did something great. Maybe a song you heard, words from a friend, and a hug works too. It’s easy to go backwards. It’s easy to let our minds get the best of us. I can get down when I think about where I want to be and how I’m not quite there and I’m working so hard.

When I write, I feel like I’m reaching into this million piece puzzle box, and I stick my hand in the box, and I pull out something pretty and perfect. But then I wonder, what do I do with this piece? Where do I place it so someone else will see it too? And some days, you just have to try, even if you end up throwing the whole thing back in the box.  

I don’t think I’m alone in feeling like I have to start over some days.  I learn each time I do start over, I actually move faster and get ahead before I know I moving past where I once stood. It’s a mix of crazy determination and belief.  Every writer, or dreamer, or entrepreneur who’s ever lived their dreams says, you have to keep going. So keep going, pull out a little miracle dust if you have to and sprinkle as necessary.
