Hi everyone! Did you guys miss my posts? Of course you did!! Well, I’m very happy to be back. I am hoping that I can post for each day to hit all of my categories, Monday Musings, Top Pick Tuesday, you know the rest, but I am still pretty darn busy at work, so my goal is to post at least 3 times, well to begin with and work up from there.
So, today is Thursday, but do I feel like throwing a virtual tantrum at you guys? Nope! I feel like being slightly philosophical.
Recently, I stopped by GameStop to meet up with my friend, David. We chatted, he traded in his Kinect, Justin bought Professor Layton and the Magical Mask and then we headed to Del Taco. While We all ate and David’s son demanded french fries that were way too hot for him, David asked me why I was not writing posts. I explained my work situation and he countered with, “but what about after work or on weekends?” I told him how drained I felt and again he countered. “There will always be things that get in the way of doing what you want to do, you just have to do it.”
And I thought about that.
David is right.
There will ALWAYS be reasons to not write.
So, the answer lies with how bad do I want it? And really, for a lot of writers it’s, “how bad do I need it?”
Writing needs to be apart of my life. I feel better when I write. I need to suck it up, because as crucial as my job is for money and stability, writing is as crucial for my well being, my soul.
So, I must change my outlook on writing.
Writing is not what I want to do.
It is what I must do.
Writing is not a hobby.
It is a lifestyle.
It is my dream, my passion, my key to a happy and fulfilled life. It is just as essential as eating, breathing.
Not writing is not an option.
