Listen closely. I don’t have a lot of time.
It’s a busy day and I will be engaged in the verbs of meeting, driving and teaching today. There will be lots of thinking and wishing that I had either public transportation or a personal chauffeur to carry me the three and a half hours home this afternoon. Really, what a waste of time. Just think of all the things I could get done if I were riding instead of actually being responsible for the driving.
Alas. It is just another busy day.
But I’ve written my morning pages, done a little walking on the treadmill and enjoyed a Hampton Inn breakfast. It is about time to get moving and head to the meeting o’ the day.
Like I said yesterday, some days are like that.
And while I’m enjoying the challenge of daily blogging and the self-induced stress of NaBloPoMo with the Poblano Gang and the wonderful cheer peppers, I have to say, I just don’t have a lot of time.
I enjoyed yesterday’s blog about writing and journaling. But now it is time to move on and write something else and there’s not enough time to sit back and enjoy that one from yesterday. Because I have to/get to fill up this page with other words today.
You know, since starting MommyVerbs about 3.5 years ago, I have published 448 posts. Some of them, I am totally in love with. Others, I barely remember. But 448 posts later, that’s just a lot of words. More words. Captured on pages, tucked away and hard to find. What does one do with all of those words? Do they get stored in tubs in the basement with all of those journals? Do I get them out and read them every now and then?
I don’t know. I guess, like the journals, I’m glad they are there. I’m glad that I’ve caught them with all the thinks and feels. I’m glad that they live here for whatever their purpose is.
Because really, we don’t have a lot of time. So even though I don’t have a personal driver who could save me lots of time this afternoon, I do have this. This time. Of sitting and writing and tagging and hurrying to get words typed and saved.
So, I may not have a lot of time. But I have the same 24 hours that everyone else has. I just choose to spend this time here. With the thinks and feels and the all of the words.
Lots and lots of words. Just think of how many more I’d have if I found someone to drive my car?!
Engage each day with action words to make good things happen.
Let’s all, Go. Do that.
