Thursday Thoughts: Universal Balance

Sometimes, I only know what day of the week it is because I have a schedule of posts on this blog: Monday wrap-up, Tuesday treats or titles, Wednesday words that make up a snippet from a work in progress, today, and Friday whatever pops into my head. I remember Wednesdays and Saturdays because I feature pictures from my male model file on my author’s page on Facebook. The days just seem to blend together, one week after another and here we are halfway through May. It’s crazy. Granted, I tend to work–or try to–seven days a week. Sometimes, I end up sitting and staring but my brain twists and turns things while Iffy munches on chocolate and scans photo sites for inspiration. That’s why today’s message from the Universe makes so much sense to me. There’s a quote from musician/singer Marc Anthony: “If you do what you love, then you’ll never work a day in your life.”

That’s kinda how I feel about things. I worked a very long time and now? Now, despite the hassles, the ups and downs, the frustration, and sometimes sheer lunacy, I’m doing what I’ve always dreamed of doing. I’m writing stories about people created in my imagination that real people actually want to read. It doesn’t get better than this.

Always see work as play and play as important, Silver, and soon you won’t know the difference between them.

Let’s all take a work break!

OK, Silver, and now it’s time to take a play break…

Yeah, think I’ll take a play break–write a few words, look at a few inspirational photos… You know…the important stuff. 😉 How will you play today?

  1. I’m not sure what’s on the schedule for today. More coffee, definitely. Tonight, I’ll be making trout for our anniversary dinner (because lo and behold, they had some at Wallyworld). Other than that, no big plans. We don’t really celebrate individual days anymore, we just enjoy them all as much as we can.

    Ah, doing what we love. Maybe that’s why I can’t get motivated right now. I never have loved the editing part.

    • Silver James says:

      Happy Anniversary! And dang it, I need to get to the post office. Note to self: Self, wrap that up and get to the post office when you go to the cleaners and Ace to get bird seed. And enjoy the trout!

Got something to say?
