Thursday Thoughts: Loving Adventure

When I sit down in the morning to write, I never know exactly what my characters are going to do or say. I don’t know if they’re going to create mayhem or make magic. I don’t know if they are going to fight me or get with the program. And sometimes, when I’m really lucky, one or more of them will divulge their deepest secret. I’ve noticed that a lot of my characters wonder if they are capable of love or even sadder, if they are worthy of being loved. Taking them on their adventure is almost as much fun as the adventure they drag me along on.

Silver, I’m hungry. Hungry for adventure.

The adventure of love.

Tell you what: The more you give of it today to the least deserving on your list, the more your life will change.

Cowabunga,

Kindness, Silver, is King.

While I immediately thought of what I do as an author, this bit of wisdom from the Universe touches on something each of us can relate to. Sometimes, I am the recipient of small kindnesses, and I try my best to pass them along–or if I’m lucky and clever, I can “pay them forward.” As I watch the news, read some of the vitriol passing through my Twitter and FB timelines, I can only shake my head. What happened to kindness? Please, my friends, do your part today. Be kind to someone, and be kind to yourself. Now go have an adventure!

  1. I’ve been moving turtles of out the road (when I can safely stop). Does that count?

    Adventure? Yeah, not so much.

    Thanks for the reminder of being kinder and more compassionate to others
