. . . try not to take anything out of it.
My friend Susan Toy of Alberta Books Canada asked me a while ago to start writing a blog about myself, and my thoughts. To my amazement, it wasn’t as pressure based as I first imagined. In fact, it is actually becoming quite easy. My thoughts just turn into words and I start typing. For those of us out there who are getting better at this, we can do it time after time—the words seem to flow, and then you read them. Hopefully what we write is meaningful, helpful, or insightful, or maybe it just helps you pass some time and think.
Today, however, I thought about you and wondered what it is you do. What do you think about? What do you get from reading blogs like mine, or my friend Rachel’s, of Faultless Finish Editing, which is very inspirational and insightful? Do you ever get the urge to write? Would you share what you were thinking? Could you, if you were asked? I find it very interesting, the responses I am getting from people, friends and their friends. You all seem to enjoy reading what we write, which in turn creates a confidence in us, the writers, so we write more.
The universe unfolds as it does without rhyme or reason; the involvement of existence is then perceived by each of us, and cast to the world as an opinion. The writers of the world share their thoughts in books; the readers of the world then create their own theories by reading the books and in turn share them with the people who don’t read the same books. And the world of words goes round and round.
I guess at this point I would like to thank you all for reading my blog, my thoughts, and the thoughts of all those who enjoy writing as an escape or a way to balance the mind. The world is full of creativity, we all share in some way, with a talent or a gift, yes, even you. Something makes you unique, sets you apart from the many or the few. Take a moment today and think of how important you are, of how much better the world is because you are a part of it. You don’t need to write it down. I will be able to tell you enjoy being you by the smile you share with me.
Don’t be afraid to spread your wings
the wind will hold you up;
Use positive energy every day
to fill your half-empty cup.
