Have you ever thrown a party where the invitations looked fabulous, you decorated the room better than you have ever decorated before, the food was on point, everything was almost picture party perfect. Then when all your party goers arrived, the door was locked up tight and the lights were off, so they left thinking there was no party there.
All the while, you are inside waiting for your guest to arrive to what you felt was the best party you have ever planned. Maybe that might not have happened to you. but it did to me, well, kind of.
I experienced a blogger’s virtual version of that. This week I really had it together with my Saturday Blog Hop (TGI Saturdays), finished on time and everything looked good. However, just by one accidental click (that I didn’t know even happened). I shut the door on my regulars and maybe even newcomers. No one was able to link-up.
I was wondering, why this blog hop was getting so many views and no one was linking up.
Shout out to a fellow sister blogger and namesake Letetia for giving me a heads up.
Anyway, that really made me feel bummed out, but my husband said things that cheered me up. He said these three things- first he said “It’s not too late to recover,” then he said,”It might work out better than you think,” but the last thing he said really made me smile, he said “Everything will be all right in the end. If it’s not all right, it is not yet the end.”
Do you remember that quote used by Dev Patel (a favorite actor of mine), who played the Hotel Manager in “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.” I can still hear those words in his voice (with accent), it makes me smile and feel hope.
The funny thing is I used that same quote to encourage a loved one that same morning. She felt discouraged and wanted to give up on something that she has been working towards for a few years.
So I want to share that quote with you, via encouragement, a free printable and pinnable pics. Don’t give up, if it is not alright, then it is not the end.
Download this free printable featuring three quotes about not giving up, including the one mentioned.
I am looking forward to seeing “The Second Best Marigold Hotel.”
By the way, that party I was talking about is still on. Come link-up this week’s TGI Saturdays # 9. There is plenty of room.
