I miss writing so much.  When I’m not writing, I’m thinking about what I’m going to write about when I get the chance.

Then the chance comes, and I don’t take advantage of it.  Sound familiar?

I have this constant swirl of words and ideas spinning around in my head, and don’t take the time I should to let them out.  I don’t know how I would operate without a million things to do and think and dream about.  I wonder what my life would be like if my brain was empty.  Well, maybe not empty.  Just quiet.

Would I be more productive?

Would I be a better wife/mother/friend/etc?

Would I be a better manager of my time?

I have been convicted lately that I need to focus on the task at hand.  Instead of juggling multiple things at once, I need to devote my time to the present, and live fully in it.  Live life rather than simply pass time.

That is my prayer for myself and my blog.  I need to do focus on doing a few things well, instead of lots of things adequately.

Whew.  Getting that out makes me feel so much better.  Is it the writing of the words or the attention I gave to my thoughts that brings a flood of peace over me?

Whatever it is, I’ll take it.  And try to accept the gift of peace instead of analyze why it came.

Wish me luck!

    I think a lot of us spend an inordinate amount of time in our heads cataloging all the things we need to 1) do 2) worry about 3) plan for. Which leaves IMO, not enough time to appreciate the moments we are actually *living*.


What do you think? I'd love to hear from you!
