The start of my holiday weekend was very busy and full of family obligations. On Sunday I consciously tried to rest on that seventh day. Reading and writing are two ways I rest.
So, I started with my Reader here. A blogger I follow had a quote that basically stated, “if you don’t seize opportunity, it will pass.” I’m usually inspired by this blog that includes a spiritual presence. The entry was motivating but I responded negatively. The words made me think about what I should really be doing with my time – so I went into denial and switched to Facebook to waste time.
It was there I found a very touching and inspirational video that ended by very simply stating, “If you want something in life – do it!”
I decided they were both signs to dust off my screenplay. I gave it life seven years ago and only recently resuscitated it. I started off by rereading to get back into character, editing as I went. Momentum kicked in and I added several scenes. I spent a large part of the day bringing it to a new level. I’d strung a lot together and felt really positive about my progress.
I reflected on how my writing session started by reading other people’s posts.
We’d helped one another.
I’d listened to the whispers.
While I backed up my literary work, I read my daily inspirational calendar:
“Let your faith ignite your dreams.”
