The first day of a new month. It made me take a moment to consider my goals and how close I am to meeting them. Not as close as I would like to be, and so I had to take a step back and think of what I’m doing, and can put in place to get closer to meeting them, while there’s still five months left of the year.
Life’s a funny thing, just when you think you have the measure of it, it gives you a big thump to keep you in place. I’ve had a couple of those thumps recently. I think there are times we need to be kind to ourselves, not beat ourselves up over words not written, or goals not kept. HOWEVER, as I told myself this morning, there is a difference between being kind, and letting things go, or giving up.
I am a writer, and writer’s write. The best thing I can do for myself, the inner me, as well as the writer me, is to write.
How much have you written today?
