Just keep going.
Just keep swimming.
I keep getting out of bed each day, super excited to write, which is probably why I keep getting out of bed every day. I come to work and fix what I can and document what I cannot. I answer all of the emails and respond to most of the phone calls. I am ready for a new work. I am putting my feelers out.
Until it finds me or I stumble upon it, I will keep putting one foot in front of the other each day. All I know to do is to keep moving mostly forward.
My Angels will keep giving me the Steady Progress card to keep gently reminding me that even though the progress is not as fast as I would like it to be, that I am in fact moving forward.
I am a writer. I am working towards being a published writer! Each day I am taking small steps that are creating the life I desire.
I will keep looking for new work that will support me having time to write.
I will work Melissa's 12 Step Program (which Jason pointed out actually has 13 steps) as featured in A Bad Case of the Sundays and practice as much self care as I can to keep myself moving forward. I need to sleep. I need to laugh. I need to fill my head and heart with art & words & emotions that move me to empty my brain by writing.
As Joan Didion so perfectly said, " I write entirely to find out what I am thinking, what I'm looking at, what I see and what it means. What I want and what I fear."
I am embracing being a writer & storyteller. I am loving how it feels to settle into the future where I have several books written and out of my head.
Time to buckle up and just keep going.
