It’s amazing how sometimes you’re filled with the desire to write, and you get ready to do so…you declutter your desk, remove distractions, settle in, finally open WordPress, all primed for a good write, only to find that you don’t know what to write! How frustrating! Well I’m having one of those moments now as you can probably tell 🙂 but I plan to keep writing regardless.
In the past couple of weeks my focus has been on life; its brevity (no matter how long), relationships; their importance, the things that can crowd them out…in short I’ve been doing some thinking. I think most of the thinking started after I read 3 books – ‘The Gift’ by Cecelia Ahern, ‘The Five People You Meet in Heaven’ by Mitch Albom, and ‘Tuesdays with Morrie’ also by Mr Albom.
[an aside: I read 3 books in 16 days! that for me is a feat beyond compare – over the past 15 years, I’ve gone from reading a book from start to finish in 2 -3 days to doing so in 2-3 months, so bear with me while I dance around and celebrate the milestone.]
I realised that I could quite easily spend my life running around, busy doing nothing; well, nothing that truly counts in the long run.
Sometimes you feel like you’re being pulled back to the core, and that’s what the past 3 weeks have felt like. “What’s inside you?” I seem to be getting asked. “Let it out, give it out, make friends…get in touch, nurture friendships and gifts and abilities” I seem to be getting told. You only get to do this place once.
**Yay! I wrote something. The power of keeping on eh? Have a lovely day :-).**
