I adore the Wishcasting Wednesday prompts posed by the inspiring Jamie Ridler. She has a way of getting me to think in a way that cuts right to the heart of things. This week she asks, "What do you wish to change?"
I wish to change my focus. As life took over this summer (and continues to keep throwing unexpected challenges our way), my writing fell by the wayside.
I love writing. I started working on a book in the spring, but haven't added to it since the beginning of summer. My blog has been a bit sparse. I don't think I've journaled in two months.
It's time to get back to it. And yet, time is always the factor isn't it? There never seems to be enough time.
I wish to change my focus, to make writing a priority. (I initially wrote, "to make writing more of a priority," then realized that phrasing already diminished it.)
For me writing is a way to organize my thoughts, to explore a topic, to open a conversation. Writing is a way to express my questions and my truths.
When I write, I feel better about my day. My attitude changes. I feel gratitude and wonder.
I wish to make writing a priority. Because no one else can do it for me.
What do you wish to change?
