Another post? Two days in a row?
Ha! Even I’m surprised.
After a year or more of sporadic activity I wasn’t sure if I should even be posting at all. I’ve been busy tutoring, working on my learning specialist certificate and and keeping up with all things family.
Yeah, great excuses. 🙂
And, maybe it’s just common sense to focus on what is in front of me. I love tutoring, taking courses to learn new strategies, and, of course, I love interacting with my family as much as possible.
But, I have this thing about writing.
No it’s not creepy. More like euphoric. Or maybe it’s more like I have these moments when I feel so deeply, see what matters in life so clearly I just want to write it down. My head fills with words that shape and form to the hidden depth of everyday moments.
It’s my passion.
But, those words seldom get written down. Days and weeks and months go by without a letter formed because I’m waiting
- for the perfect moment when I have hours of nothing to do but write.
- for the perfect idea to come into my head so I can put it down on paper.
- for someone to encourage me and let me know that my writing is perfectly acceptable and I should do it.
As if I will ever be. That’s not me, not you, not anyone.
And that’s why I”m blogging two days in a row. I”m not perfect but I am passionate. And, I have to get capture the rhythm of everyday life in words.
I want to write. Imperfectly. Any time I can. No matter what other people think of me.
What about you? Maybe you’ve been hardwired to sing, dance, write computer code, run 5ks, paint, speak, garden, sketch, knit, landscape, build, tear down, listen deeply, cook creatively, or something I don’t know how to spell, pronounce or even wrap my head around.
Maybe you’ve done it before.
Maybe it’s something you’ve longed to do but never let your self even imagine what it would be like if you did.
I say that
- No matter what people think
- even if now is not the perfect time,
- or you feel you are not good enough
The beauty is not just in the end result. It is in the process.
- carve out
- some time
- even it’s just a moment or two
to begin to bring your dream to life.
In the words of the world’s most famous footwear-
Just do it 🙂
