We all have that voice inside us that prompts action. You know, the one that says eat that donut when we really “want” to go for a job? The one that says another slice of pizza won’t hurt your hips. Knit – don’t clean! Play with puppies. Build a house of cards. Review that book. Squirrel!
Then there’s a voice that only talks at night – long after bedtime and your head has hit the pillow, the alarm will go off in four, three, two hours. The voice pumps you full of ideas but steals them away again in the morning.
Say your passion is writing – like mine is *wink* - and you get your best ideas when you’re standing in the shower, where there’s no bloody pen or paper. If you don’t get the idea out, it festers, growing, building, surmounting the current work-in-progress and overall driving you slowly insane.
That’s how it is for me. Keeping my sanity at a manageable level drives me – keeps me going.
I know, it’s not something beautiful or inspired like the good of mankind or peace on earth, but imagine if I lost my sanity. Considering the things that I write (hint: NOT cuddly!), good of mankind and peace on earth might be in more jeopardy than we thought, if I lose it.
What do you have that inspires you? What’s your passion?
Thank you so much for having me. I appreciate the opportunity to be here and I welcome any comments or questions ya’ll might have.
Stay Alive, Survivors!
