The Nice Thing About Strangers

All that he had now was an idea that one day something would happen. And he would be taken by a set of events to the place he should go. What he had to do was to hold himself in readiness, to recognize the moment.

    Priceless – love the quote and the image to accompany it 😉 Although, it’s probably worth mentioning that we don’t want to become so rock steady ready that we become hyper-focused on one pinpoint of opportunity, only to miss every other good one that may be passing us by 😉 Thanks Paige, as always, for the thought-provoking insights!

    • Yes, too much focus can be an issue as well, but I never want to miss how things unfold along the way. I have to remind myself that as I am in the editing phase of my novel. I need that patience and the confidence that things will fall into place. 🙂
      Thank you, Dave! You’re awesome!
