As a blogger, it's easy to get caught up in the numbers. You got mid-hundred hits on a blog post but only got around 100 hits on the latest one? You made a mistake. You're supposed to create things, things that get hits, get attention, right? Wrong.
As a human, it's easy to get caught up in the next big thing. You want the A on the test, you want the cute boy, you want the raise, you want the job, you want the 2.5 kids with the white picket fence and a dog but what happens when you don't get something? Are you less of a person? Are you somehow a failure? No, you're not.
