Guys, I’m exhausted. I haven’t done much naked writing lately. I was totally going to, but I watched a PG Movie with the family tonight instead. This post is going to be short and sweet or maybe just short, you get to decide. It’s a free country <Let’s hope it stays that way.
Category: 31 Days of Writing (page 2 of 3)
I need a good night’s sleep. Rather than digging deep and trying to come up with something good to say, I am sharing another poem. I wrote this one about ten years ago. It’s about seeking guidance, wisdom and discernment. It is a good reminder for me to trust God, maybe it is a good reminder for you too! Am I cheating on this 31-day writing thing? Maybe, maybe not. I still got another ten days. Next, I plan to write about insecurity <an absolute favorite topic of mine. Bravery too. So stay tuned.
Tonight I’m relyin’ on a poem I wrote in 2007. It’s called The Voice. Funny thing is, I just got done binge watching the TV show. I am nearly caught up. Who do you think is going to win? I think Way [spelled We] is going all the way. I think she has an amazing voice. As for my poem, it’s about overcoming negative self talk.
I’m tired. I’m frustrated. I’m disappointed. I hate to be a downer on my birthday (it was a good day by the way) but it’s the truth. I’m tired because I haven’t been taking very good care of myself. I’m frustrated because I haven’t been able to write like I’ve been wanting to and I’m disappointed because my hope was to write an a-MA-zing blog post on my birthday and well, that’s not gonna happen.
I’ve been clicking on the ‘Save Draft’ button instead of ‘Publish’ lately. I had intentions of making my last couple blog posts better than they actually were < hmm that could be a post in itself. No more drafts allowed. I don’t have time to revisit the past anyway. Today is Day 17 and tomorrow is my birthday.
I got up. I went to work. I shed a few tears. I read with a few kids. I had lunch. I played a game. I texted my daughter. I stood in the rain. I drank Kombucha. I went to the store. I stopped at the bank. I got home at four. I made dinner. I watched TV. I listened to the rain. I have to go pee. Good night.
I have so much swirling around in my brain tonight I don’t really know where to begin. I’ve been thinking a lot about my birthday, especially today. I usually sub for the school district but today I cleaned a home, not my home, but someone else’s home. It gives me a mental break from subbing and a chance to think. So while I cleaned toilets, I did some contemplating. The next thing ya know and I’m moppin’ the kitchen floor in tears.
