Doubt

Today’s editing efforts deteriorated into a session of self-doubt. After a few sweaty hours of hammering at a lost cause, I forced myself to close the word processing software, turn off the light, and shut the office door tight behind me. Ever have one of those days?

      Indigo slept through most of my meltdown, woke long enough to express her confusion over leaving the office so soon, and then settled on the couch for more sleep. The cats listened as I complained about my lack of progress, then pointed out that their food bowl was empty… πŸ™‚

      Yes! And there will be sunshine, which might have been today’s missing piece.

      I don’t know why I let my inner critic take over some days, but I do. It’s nice to know that I’m not alone!

      Today I hope to regain the ground that I lost yesterday. Tomorrow, I will aim for true progress!

    Frequently! And my kitties–one in particular–will look at me like the one in the photo, as if to say, “Well, you’re better off putting your attention on me anyway!”

      Hm. I do tend to feel better after a few hours of cat time…

        Absolutely! I always have time for my kitties!
