Every time I start a writing or art project I find out something about myself -- sometimes it's good, sometimes its, well... its all good, I guess.  Today, I was knee deep into my writing groove, feeling pretty good about my progress and myself when I received a phone call from a loved one needing (but, more like demanding) my help.  I won't go into details about what was discussed, but I will tell you this... If you do not use your life, the universe will use it for you.  I learned the hard way that time and energy will always be used towards your own goals or towards someone else's.  Being 50+ years, I just don't have that much excess time and energy to spare.

I had to make a difficult decision today.  It was not easy, and I did spin round and round in mental circles before I said 'yes'... Yes, that what I choose as my calling is worthy of my time and my energy.  Yes, I am worthy of my dreams. Yes, I will follow through and not compromise the goals that I have set for myself.  And 'no', I cannot assist at this time, for this time I have chosen 'me'.  And, because I am familiar with how life works, I know that my loved one will do just fine without me.  Free at last!

    Laughs..who said it was wonderful?  Naw, I jest. God is good!

    Today the phone is off and I will probably drive to one of my spots on the water and handle my writing business.  Good  luck with your writing and with the loves of your life.  Rock and a hard spot...

    Hi Melody, this call was from someone that I loved more than my life... therein lies the problem.  Too many deadlines, too many goals, too much of me was pushed aside for years and nothing ever got accomplished.  I'm glad you had a wonderful day with your loved one, though.  Good luck with your project this evening.

    What would you/do you do when the *call* is from one you love?

     

    Today, while in great stride, my own deadlines, I got a call and I had to stop, drop,and roll.  I'll try and get my grove back late tonight because now the hubby is home, the wine is open and I have to/want to be present.

     

    I did curse like a sailor as I got in the car and heeded the *call.*  Then I thanked God I had loved ones who need me and will be in my life long after the deadlines...goals...projects...
