I’m writing this Sunday night, thinking about the work week to come and the thought of all the things I need to accomplish is bordering on overwhelming.
Late for a “Monday Morning Musing” post I know, but the message is still timely. In the course of spending this month getting all my affairs in order to begin drafting my novel next month, my favorite slogan of ‘Sometimes Life Happens’ reared its ugly head again. Real world situations occurred to have me contemplate the decisions I make and how I should move forward.
It’s Thursday night while I’m writing this and I’m looking back on the previous weekend and this work week like it was a blur. Easter was on Sunday and I made the familiar sojourn back home to visit my family and enjoy their company for a few days. It was a much-needed break away from the city and from my daily routine as well. But I also hoped to use it as a creative opportunity.
As we creep closer to midnight, I’m just now getting a chance to really sit down and gather my thoughts from the very ‘trying’ day. Trying is perhaps an understatement of epic proportions but it wouldn’t be life without a curve ball thrown at you every inning or so. But now’s not the time for that. The time is for sharing another writing contest that I want to submit to.
I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that most of you reading this have either been told or have heard the following phrase:
“With enough hard work, you have the potential to become anything you want to be.”
