Here’s What I Really Want To Say

I want you to be happy.

It hit. My inspiration block. Which is translating into my writer’s block.

All my drafts look like crap and nothing feels right.

Each time I work on completing a draft, I close it in frustration.

Three days of starting and stopping. And the more I try to make it work, the more blocked I feel.

I write inspirational, life coaching type pieces, but after a while they begin to sound preachy to me.

Do this. Don’t do that. You should….

What I’m really struggling to say is that I want you to have a good life.

Whatever that means for you.

I want you to be happy, to have rich experiences, and to leave your limitations in the dust.

I want you to feel good in all aspects of your life. Great health…meaningful relationships…personal peace…happiness…

I want it so much for you that I’ll get out of bed at 2:48 am when I’m struck with an idea to share.

But the words just aren’t flowing.

So I guess right now I’ll take my own advice.

It’s ok to slow down.

None of it has to be perfect.

One step at a time.

Get out and do something fun…

after you go back to bed. 😉
