Thursday Thoughts: Universal Timing

The Universe has a point today. Most writers tend to take things seriously. This is true even of those who write humor. Comedy is a serious business. Sometimes, we writers get so serious about things we get wrapped around the axle. You know what occurs when that happens, right? Things come to a screeching halt. That, in and of itself, is not necessarily a bad thing either. Sometimes, we need to stop and think things through because the big U is right.

You don’t have to take everything so seriously, Silver.

Life isn’t black and white, answers aren’t always yes or no, and absolutely nothing has to happen today.

Act when you’re ready. Be led by your feelings. And the next time someone wants to fit you into a box, just tell ’em that your jeans are in the wash, your angels are at the mall, and Oprah’s on the other line.

Fuzzy as dice,
The Universe

You’re a spiritual being, Silver, on an eternal quest in a love-adventure you get to design. Do it your way.

Yeah, not sure I wouldn’t leave Oprah on hold but whatever. And good thing I have more than one pair of jeans and that my angels like the mall because I don’t. πŸ™„ But I’ve learned this in both life and my career. The message works for both. Sometimes, the answer is maybe. Sometimes, you look at shade of gray. There’s nothing wrong with sitting still, doing nothing because if nothing happens, it doesn’t happen. As writers, we develop our own process. None of us fit in a box. But we darn sure need to feel so that our words can pass those feelings along to our readers. And now I want a karaoke machine so I can belt out that iconic Frank Sinatra hit…you know the one. C’mon, all together now. Sing it with me… πŸ˜‰

  1. Wise words from the Big U this morning. Not everything does have to be taken so seriously. Laugh when you can. Find humor here and there. And do it your way. ;o)
