Shake It Off – Part 2
This morning I am doing my best to follow my own advice from Day 1 of the 40 Days of Writing project. Shake it off. Shake off the fact that I couldn’t go on the ride with my Team this morning due to the this cold I’ve been fighting. Specifically, a cough that has taken up residence in my lungs. I actually don’t feel all that bad, but I haven’t been getting enough sleep and it was more about feeling the need to not set the alarm for 5:30 this morning. My body needs rest, as does my mind.
I think there is a force beyond my control messing with my intuition. I feel like I need to arm myself with a laser gun and take pot shots at invisible green men who are blocking my super powers. Maybe it’s just the rhinovirus. Whatever it is, it’s got me feeling that I need to take a giant step back. I don’t know how to be anyone other than who I am, nor do I really want to be anyone else. I’m okay with me, but it is becoming obvious that there are times when I don’t take my own best interests to heart. The heart in question being right smack dab on my sleeve and a good friend reminded me last night that when you do that, your weaknesses are exposed. And there are tons.
I guess it’s one of those days when I need to give myself a break and shake off the rain cloud that is looming above my head. The sun is shining. I have tomatoes to plant and an awning to paint. Another friend has also challenged me to try my hand at writing fiction. Perhaps the day will bring forth an idea and I can get started on a short story. Perhaps about a girl with a laser gun.
