I Surrender

Life gets to us all sometimes and I am certainly no exception to the rule.

Instead of working myself to death and worrying about things I can’t control, I’m trying a not so new technique for a few days but it’s something I’m very unaccustomed to…letting go.

Have you ever tried to screw the lid back on a jar or bottle and for some reason, the threads won’t line up and you keep unscrewing it and screwing it back on, only have to repeat this again and again?

Yeah, that’s how my head feels lately in relation to my neck.

I’ve been somewhat disappointed in the performance of my newest novel. However, I’d be an ignorant clod if I didn’t appreciate the fact that I even exist and am able to read, write and breathe at all.

  • I’m grateful to have the opportunity to publish.
  • I’m grateful for those who support me.
  • I’m thankful for those who take time out of their lives to remind me why I do the things I do and why I work so hard.
  • I’m thankful to have a day job I love and enjoy going to each day and that it keeps my lights on and puts food on my table as I pursue this crazy dream.
  • I’m grateful for those who have taken time out of their lives to read anything I have written.
  • I’m thankful for my wonderful family and friends just for being who they are.
  • I accept the fact that as long as I stay focused and work hard, my day will come. 
  • I also accept the fact that the universe is in control and regardless of what I do, this spark will ignite when the time is right. I just need to be patient and wait my turn.

Surrender

 

Today if it Rained – A Poem Showed Up Out of Somewhere

Today if it rained

I’d not be blue

I’d lose myself in a story

or write one, or two

I’d find things unimagined

and get lost in the sounds

Take an uncharted voyage, a journey

unbound.

A ship or a train

A carriage or car

Just riding the raindrops

I’d reach what’s afar

Will the rain wash away all my worries and woe,

Or simply distract me, of this, I don’t know.

What I do know is rain, hard or soft,

is a blessing.

It opens my spirit, to forget

anything pressing.

If I write or I read

the outcome is the same

I’m immersed in a voyage

All thanks to the rain
