Today I will:
~ strive to be fully present in my environment, aware of opportunities and stories yearning for a voice.
~ read, digest, and then return to the buffet of beauty which depends upon us as writers to keep it refilled. This smorgasbord (really stretching the metaphor by this point!) is a meal in our family’s home, where we are gently told “You know where the fridge is, go get your refill and could you get me one, too?”
~ revise old work with a mindset of kindness, self-forgiveness, and progress. Nothing written is worthless.
~ reach out to other writers in a supportive, encouraging and encompassing spirit. Even if it is just to share a “like” on an insightful comment or lovely photo, I find it crucial to maintain and encourage each and every creative soul…and we are all creative beings.
~ pause to taste the coffee my husband lovingly brewed even though he never drinks it. I’ll remember that context, celebrate it, offer gratitude and then reciprocate the gesture.
~ encourage you, brilliant reader, to do all this and more. We are a community, and together we accomplish greatness.
