Dear readers, I apologize for the hiatus! I've hit a rough patch the past few days that's left me feeling blue and uninspired. Whenever I get this way, I always come back to this quote. This has been my favorite quote for as long as I can remember. I'm not exactly sure of who said it or when it originated, but I love it. People often say that a picture paints a thousand words, but I like to think that for us writers, the ultimate goal is to say as much as possible in as few words as possible. It is an art. And this quote achieves that goal.
Lord knows that I'm far from perfect, but I like to think that I try to make the effort to go the extra mile everyday. I am a firm believer that sometimes the littlest things make the biggest difference. I am lucky to have a handful of people in my life who always go the extra mile, and they know exactly who they are. So whether you're down on your luck or walking on sunshine, do something today that goes the extra mile. Like they say, it's not crowded and it isn't even that far.
