As the first month of 2020 gets under way, there are lots of things to think about. How do I want to spend my time? What do I want to be doing? I have a tendency to take on more projects then are likely wise.
I had a music colleague say this week “ I think that we get dragged away- we are afraid of what we really want to be doing.” This struck a chord with me. I think that I am doing what I want to be doing and then I wonder. I want to be writing is the truth of it. I enjoy lots of the other things that I do but I love writing- songs, poems, non-fiction, fiction, blogs. These thoughts did get me writing this blog this morning. Oh yes and morning pages. I journal almost every day and have been since I was about twelve. I guess I really do love to write.
What is it that you might be afraid to do? I think this is something that could be reflected upon. With this in mind I am going to commit to blog every two weeks as it has been since about 2015 – I usually take summers off.
I love to write. What do you love doing? I am going to commit to letting myself do as much writing as I want to be doing . Is there something you need to let yourself do?
For the last several years when the question was asked, what would your dream day would look like, I would say, to myself at least – music in the morning , writing in the afternoon. So from today this is what I am going to try to do. I hope I have given you some food for thought.
See you in a couple weeks! Until then:
Yours in creativity and music,
