Every day I face a dilemma which I must address.
I have a dream.
I want to write my book. When will it happen? Every day my fingers itch towards the power button of the computer. Every day I ponder on the progress of my web designer who needs to fix my niggles of a no-comment blog system which isn’t serving me well. Every day I silence the frustration in me and Focus On What Is Important.
Every day I read.
Every day I read the words of The Inspiring Women Of My Life, and I am oh-so-inspired and wistful. I want to write. It is what my heart yearns for, Yet I need to focus on what’s important. My home, my kids, my Cortisol level.
The other day I pulled out my little book of Letters to a Young Poet to inspire my son on how to end a letter poetically, with a German flavour. And I smiled as I read him my favourite bit with tears welling in my eyes and a lump catching my throat.
‘Acknowledge to yourself whether you would have to die if it were denied you to write. This above all – ask yourself in the stillest hour of the night: must I write? Delve into yourself for a deep answer. And if this should be the affirmative, if you may meet this earnest question with a strong and simple “I must.” then build your life according to this necessity.”
Pursuing my dream of writing is to honour my Leader and Lover. And I am going to need the help of my Wise-Woman to get rapport with my little one, who will be really annoyed when she sees Mummy sitting at her computer clicking away. Just as she is now! I will also need the help of my Warrior, who will ensure I manage my time effectively, and also wont allow me to become so obsessed with writing that I forget What Is Important.
All good wishes for you, and may you be inspired to follow your dreams, too!
