Thank you Yoga. My new Mantra makes dealing with reviews easier #yoga

I know.
I know.
It's Friday and I post yoga things on Thursday.
But hey, what's a little extra yoga in a week.
Nothing but joyfulness.
So what prompted this.
I'm a writer.
Yeah - you know that, but it needed to be said.
I just had a release.
It's been getting slammed.
Reviews are hard to take.
We love our books.
We know they are perfect.
When someone doesn't like it - it hurts.
I pretty much live by the code of - if you can't say anything good- don't say anything.
I - also - know - not everyone will like my books.
I don't like every book out there.
But still - it hurts.
When you are a new author- what nobody tells you is that a good review makes you feel good for a day.
But ----
One line of criticism from a stranger reverberates in your skull forever.
So where does yoga come in???
When I read - stupidly on my part - I know better - read that 1st not so good review I got angry.
I wanted to jump up and down, screaming.
I wanted to write a super long, very vicious reply.
Instead I breathe and chanted.
And it worked.
So at your next not so good review -

Breath in Strength. Breathe out bullshit.
