Here we are, day 2 of the commitment to write something, anything, every day.
Up early today to answer pressing work emails and texts. Managed to squeeze in some time for reading, and packed up my laptop and walked to the park to write. Not a bad little Tuesday… at least on the surface. More on that in another post.
PS – I’m really enjoying this book I came across Chasing Slow by Erin Loechner Easy to read. Relatable. Thought provoking. And one of those books that just fell into my lap. I believe the Universe puts people/books/quotes/lessons in your path… if we are open to receive them.
(Back to our regularly scheduled program…)
The truth is there is a lot that floats through my head. A lot I want to get down on paper.
I don’t think writing will be the problem, the problem with this venture (this blog that perhaps nobody will ever read), as with my life, will be corralling it all into something coherent for the person on the other side of the table/phone/page.
My brain has always worked a mile a minute, and often it’s been frustrating, especially in close relationships for others to keep up. Bouncing from idea to idea, always thinking 10 steps ahead. Coming up with what could be a great new business, invention, idea, trip, etc etc only to bounce to the next thing so quickly that I either lose interest, or someone beats me to the punch. Finishing a sentence for a conversation that was only going on in my mind… and looking puzzled the receiving party isn’t up to speed. And this isn’t a new phenomenon. My mother would tell you I’ve been this way since I was a toddler.
So what’s a fella to do? Keep writing I suppose. Perhaps if I can get it all out onto paper, it will help my mind slow down a bit, give me a little more peace, a little better sleep.
