I didn’t post last night for several reasons. One was that I was home. Home with Sweet Husband, and spending time with him trumps any commitments to this writing…even though he understands and supports the time I spend writing. Two was that we were having dinner with friends I haven’t seen in awhile. Being inspired and creating connections in the flesh is greater than writing about being inspired. Three is that I fear I’m getting sick. It usually happens when you begin teaching. You get among all those children and all of those germs and bugs that they carry and you combine that with a run-down immune system due to stress and lack of sleep and proper nutrition, and sickness is a likely result. So when we got home from dinner, with my head pounding and my allergy medicine, sudafed, and aleve unable to touch it, I crawled into our bed with Sweet Husband and promptly passed out. Too tired and too wiped out at 9:00 to even care that it was Friday and we hadn’t really had any time with each other in a week.
Before I went to sleep, though, I saw this post from Danielle LaPorte. I must have thought about it while I was comatose because I woke up thinking, I’ve got to do that during my morning pages. Of course, in my haze, I didn’t remember where I had seen the post and those perhaps I’d imagined it when I couldn’t find it in my email. Once I realized it was in my bloglovin app, all was right in the world.
Like Danielle recommends, I wrote it out long-hand. It felt good to be able to name those things I trust and can believe in.
What do you trust? Let me know in the comments.
