Today I found out I need to write a 5-6-page paper in three four days. So I’ve spent most of the day alone reading the material for the paper. Then I hurt myself earlier this evening when I fell. So either one of those would be good reasons to not write. They would be legitimate and true reasons. And they would be excuses. I may be a little busier in the weeks and months ahead. I may need to be more focused. I may need to use all the small pockets of time, a few minutes here and there throughout the day, as well as large chunks of time, a couple of hours a day. The future is not now, but it’s coming and I need to be prepared.
But none of that is going to stop me from writing.
Almost anything that stops me from living out my purpose is little more than an excuse. Excuses don’t create accomplishments.
I may not always write as much as usual. I may be tired sometimes. I may even have to write faster. But I’m not going to stop. I love my Muse and this is how I tell her. She loves me in return and tells me what to write. This love will never stop, so I will keep writing, despite busyness, pain, or anything else.
That’s my message for tonight.
Tomorrow I will have a new message. And it will also be the same message: Get Started and Keep Going.
Oh…and don’t give up. Because love doesn’t quit.
