Gretchen Rubin, Jamie, Writer discussed on Happier with Gretchen Rubin

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

I'm Gretchen Rubin. And this is a little happier. I love it. When people know the right thing to say and I'm fortunate because my husband Jamie is very good at this. In a few words, he often says just the right thing to put my mind at rest, for instance. He knows the right things to say to me when I hit some of the happiness, stumbling blocks that are common to writers. For instance. I might say to him my editor is suggested so many changes. I mean, I agree with most of them. But it's discouraging I thought this draft was in great shape, or maybe someone writes something about me or my work that I don't like I try never to read anything that's written about me or my work because it's not good for me or my writing. But sometimes stuff does slip through and I say to him. I don't know what this whole thing says. But I know there's at least this one part that's annoying or that's hurting my feelings or I said to him I've got to get it before. I am to catch a flight to give a talk and so on. Jamie listens. And then inevitably he says very kindly. Remember, this is what you wanted. And it's comforting because that's true. This is what I wanted. I wanted to become a writer. I wanted constructive criticism to make my work better. I wanted to put my thoughts out into the world. I wanted to engage with people about the ideas that interests me some aspects of this are difficult. But this is what I wanted so often the things that are disagreeable to us are inextricably intertwined with what we enjoy or desire most. I'm Gretchen Rubin. And I helped this makes your week a little happier..
