Just looked on my drafts, unwritten posts, unfinished essays, and find that I have over FOUR HUNDRED of them.
Every one who writes has a perfect situation where inspiration and creativity flows like a cool breeze or a gentle stream. No drama, no craziness, no rush, no interruptions.
Here is my Joyous Moment: Right now, here I sit, alone, in the living room of the house, all windows and doors open at this hour, music blasting, with only the light of Mama’s table, the TV, my laptop and a little flashlight, and me writing. I’ve been at it for a few hours now and haaaaaappppy!
Especially as event season is upon me, I tend to write a lot every day, but I write proposals, copy points, event timelines, etc. My mind is beyond busy with constant ‘to-do’ lists, what needs to get done, what has been done. Granted, this helps me immensely to keep things moving and in order, and while it is joyous when events go well, it does not give me enough of these kinds of joyous moments, where I am ‘me’, at peace with the world, recharging my batteries, doing things that I love to do.
It helps that the house is completely quiet this weekend, as Dad is out-of-town. Usually all of the lights are on, he’s working on some project or another, his music or TV shows blasting, and it doesn’t feel like a girl’s house LOL. This type of night reminds me of almost every night when I lived in my own place. While I still come and go as I please, it’s different with roommates and you know how it is, it’s a little harder to find those “me time” moments. Don’t get me wrong, there’s no where else I’d rather be, but sometimes, it’s the BEST to be able to do whatever you want, whenever you want.
So tonight, I will sit back and enjoy this Joyous Moment, Me Time, Girl Time, blast MY favorite music, and write until I get sleepy…or write all night like I’ve been known to do.
I must make time for these Joyous Moments (and writing) more often.
