Just Write Blog Entry: Life Lesson

 Just Write is written on a post-it taped to the inside of my computer. As I continue down the road of my own journey of self-development and discovery, I have challenged myself to wake-up each morning and JUST WRITE. These two words inspire me, even when I am feeling empty, to Just Write. I aim for twenty minutes each morning sometimes less, sometimes more, but I always walk away feeling better than I started. These blog entries are the product of following through on this commitment to myself. There is no rhyme or reason other than to Just Write. I am glad you are here. Perhaps I can inspire you to go more in the direction of vulnerability and curiosity  of how this simple act can play a part in your overall well-being when YOU JUST WRITE .

These last few days have been a bit heavier than I would've liked and now it is time to leave my heavy behind. Life has thrown me a curve ball I did not see coming and one that has definitely left me questioning some things. First, I need to pause and remember that I can not control what happens to me I can only control how I react to it. Like most, I do not like confrontation, nor do I like experiencing the emotions that come when someone has betrayed you. Life happens and at any moment will teach you a lesson that you may not be ready for. How will you handle that curve ball when Life throws one out at you? What do you do when someone you trust gives their word and then breaks that trust with their actions?

I challenge myself, when I write, to have a beginning, a middle and an end. The Just Write entries are one way to aide me in my creative processes and be able to have a thought and complete it. Today, I am approaching the end of my twenty minutes and am challenged in finishing today's blog entry. I often go over my twenty minute mark as words continue to flow in a way that fills me up for the rest of my day. I am sure I still feel a bit dissatisfied about today's entry because I have mixed feelings and to be honest, I am still hurting, therefore making it a bit harder for me to focus. The ball is out of my court. I have expressed my feelings, why I feel the way I do and that's all I can do. I can wait and let my mind wander and create possible scenarios of how this will ultimately play out, but that is out of my control. Relying on someone else to determine my well being is weak and playing the victim. I am no victim. I choose to not give someone else that kind of power. What I do know is that I can decide where to go from here. I know that I will be okay. We are human and ultimately we are designed to be flawed. As I have been hurt, I also know that I have been the source of someone else's pain in the past. I can do better. I will continue to work on myself, but that is all I can do. I can sit and dwell on yesterday's sorrow or I can create opportunities to fill myself back up. I can focus on what I do know. My family is healthy. I am healthy. We have a roof over our heads and we are happy, full of joy and love for each other and the world around us. Today, showing gratitude, will help me leave my heavy behind. I will challenge myself to redirect my negative energy toward gratitude. I may even say it aloud or write it down. When the heavy starts weigh me down I will not let it. I will give thanks for the experience and the lessons learned. Today is a good day.
