23. Welcome to the Word

27 Nov

Often times, life wraps you up in compromising circumstances. We people are stressed. Our relationships are tense. And we believe that each of us is the busiest of all. Often times, we absorb the content of our surroundings without truly seeing them. We hold back our opinions for the sake of time. We don’t try harder for fear it will command too much effort. We believe in a finite amount of life – and therefore, a finite amount of energy. And other times, we surprise ourselves with the unending energy we can muster. Our minds create reservations while our souls chant ‘get back to work’ ‘do not question your worth’ ‘do more with more for more’. As an ode to writers and creators everywhere, I quote Kathy Hepinstall. In the hum-drumness of dead week, remember this:

“THE TIMESPAN BETWEEN DROPPING THE PEN AND PICKING IT UP AGAIN IS A DIRECT REFLECTION OF YOUR MATURITY”

So pick up the damn pen, my friends. Don’t just move along.
