As Agent Dale Cooper from Twin Peaks puts it:
Harry, I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don’t plan it. Don’t wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men’s store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee.
If you’re ever feeling down from writing- struggling with a chapter, a rejection from a magazine you’d been hoping to get into, just a crappy day all around, give yourself a present. In my case, it was a nice brownie sundae, totally decadent, totally tasty. I shared with Angela as it was too much just for me. But I loved it =)
