I love watching myself avoid sitting down to write. And yet each time I do I am given something to write and it never comes from my thinking mind. Sitting through those few moments of emptiness takes getting used to. I trust that something will appear, and I am grateful for the words that are given to me when they arrive. What I need assistance with is getting myself to do the simple act of putting my butt in the chair. I have no issue putting my butt down to watch a movie. Perhaps I can start looking at writing as a new movie Spirit will deliver to the pen in my hand if I sit. That’s a first. I actually think I can get behind that vision. How fun, a discovery in the moment that if I had not sat down I would have missed.
Martha, I so love your down-to-earth, open, honest words! You write in your authentic voice, which i makes reading your stuff fun. I can see you in them!
I’m giggling. This one is adorable! But oh my… yes, putting your butt on the chair ready for writing! You are inspirational! That’s for sure!
