Today is not a good day

Want an under-rated way to dream bigger and do bigger? Sure, continue to read. And, write about what you believe. Every. Single. Day.

Today is not a good day to put your dreams on hold.

You know what’s hard to believe?

family values
In a moment 4 years ago, we were asked to list our values. Immediately wrote mine down. Few people can write theirs immediately. Write yours down right now. See what i mean?

You know what’s hard to believe?

Couple things:

  • Haven’t had a drop of alcohol in 19 years
  • Have written 20,000 blog posts
  • Have written 5 daily blogs for 4k+ consecutive days

Even wilder, no one cares, yet the streaks seem heroic.

To me anyway.

Find your reasons to do what inspires you and brings you joy.

PS. Regarding reasons, you’ll need at least a million of them.

The list:

  1. Honesty
  2. Behave admirably
  3. Personal responsibility
  4. Self-control
  5. Initiative
  6. Fun

Unanswered Questions?

Wanna pray?

Beach sunflower.

Wanna pray, or write?

For some possessed souls, writing is praying.

Why?

Because.

i think about all the writing that has been transcribed from my head and heart onto a WordPress admin screen.

It’s incomprehensible.

(Since 1999, 20,000 posts and counting)

It begs questions like, why, for whom, for how long, and how do you keep from running out of ideas or desire?

The quick, easy answer is, i don’t know.

Perhaps i’m just a writing-mule slogging through the days as the earth circles our sun.

Perhaps a lucky mule that is accompanied by fairies or wisps or some other divine or cosmic intervention.

This TED is partially to credit for some of this post.

Three-thousand, four-hundred, sixty-nine

Catholic Priest using iPhone
Interestingly enough, i have spent many mornings writing on an iPhone.

 

The ability to write five daily, differently-themed blogs comes from somewhere.

But i honestly don’t know from where.

Maybe God.

Wherever it comes from, it’s been 9.5 years (three-thousand, four-hundred, sixty-nine consecutive days). (this includes two leap year days – Feb 29)

Is it okay to not write a lot?

Sidewalk Prophets song

 

(photo: Sidewalk Prophets song… whether you write or don’t write, God Loves You Anyway)

One of the most difficult things most writers never learn is how to say a lot without writing a lot.

God will never, ever abandon us.

Ever.
