Dancing with life has kept me from words these past weeks, it could be a month or more.
Setting out on the blogging path again this year, I was so determined not to waver. This time I would be consistent. This time I would write each week. This time I would be present and fearless. But yet again, I disappeared into a life without words. I stopped writing, stopped visiting my favourite blogs. The magic drained away as I was consumed by other things – work, especially.
Returning to my WordPress friends’ blogs today I’ve found so much to renew me and remind me to keep going. And I’m also reminded of the similarities between maintaining a writing practice and a meditation practice…that I simply need to keep returning to these practices no matter how many times I ‘fail’. The returning itself, with courage and persistence, becomes the practice itself.
With gratitude for writers and readers everywhere, today I begin again. Blessed be.
