I planned on writing every day all month, but I don't have to because I am doing it for myself and family and friends and Ruth. I don't want to get that bad taste in my mouth of just having to come up with anything at all to write about. I don't feel comfortable with that. I want my words to count on things that pertain/speak to me.
Call it hard to keep up. Call it lost of interest. Call it you can't do it naturally. Call it you're not a real writer. Call it whatever you want. I just can't write every day. Is there something wrong with that?
I do love to write--always have. I do need to be pushed and have a deadline, but I also have to have a purpose. Posts should be uplifting but life is not always like that. I do look for the good and positive and don't like to be around people who can't manage that. Some days are just hard to be positive and SAVOR.
Teaching taught me a lot.
Don't take things personal.
Shake it off.
Make your own perks.
Can life's lessons be any better than that? As a child I was not given much guidance which I needed. I was passive because I didn't know if things were right or wrong. I knew things weren't good. Auntie Mary took me to her Baptist Church, and they taught me what was right and wrong. I clung to that. I identified with that. But I needed more. I still remained passive after college. I learned about family from my husband. I learned about family having my own three sons and having five grandchildren. I am still learning. I know now I missed a lot in my childhood. At least, I now know what family is. I am almost 67 years old and have discovered much in the last 10 years.
I am thankful to have been able to have aged and discovered what I was never taught as a child.
Life has been good to me.
Side note: Snow storm tonight. I am looking desperately for spring after a very long winter.
