better days SOLC20 #31

In many ways this month of unanticipated changes and unsettling news has seemed to stretch forever. At last it is coming to an end.

But how can this month of writing be done? I have so much more to process. So many more ideas to consider, so much more to say.

Of course, I can still write.  The question is, will I? I am so deeply grateful for Two Writing Teachers to provide this outlet yet again, this motivation to write and share.

And in the midst of that work, it is good to find myself again. Thank you, ALL of you at Two Writing Teachers, for making this writing celebration happen yet again this year.

As the month went on it was easier – and more necessary – to write. Pieces that sometimes alluded to the strange world situation we find ourselves in, and sometimes just to escape. And as always, at the end of every March writing challenge, there’s that determination to keep writing. Perhaps the slower pace of today may help with the necessary follow-through this time.

As April starts tomorrow, I once again look forward to a new month. No one knows what this one will bring. The truth, that we often forget, is that this is true about every upcoming month and each tomorrow that we have.  No one knows.

So I will try to take every day as a gift, to celebrate the good that can always be found, to remember to be thankful for each day as it ends, and to look forward to the next tomorrow with hope.

 

Better days ARE ahead!

This is hopeful and current. I’m thankful to have read it today 🙂

    What a perfect ending to a very unsettling month! I especially love the line, “to celebrate the good that can always be found.” It is easy to get caught up in the fear and uncertainty. Now, more than ever, we need to focus on all that we have and be grateful. Your slice in a beautiful reminder of that.

  3. Your writing today is reassuring. We started out the month without knowing how much the writing would mean to us, more than other years. Let’s keep moving ahead with hope.

    It was good writing with you again. And you are right, every day is a gift and we need to appreciate each and every one of them

    Better days are ahead. I think there will be a tiny puzzle piece in our life-puzzle with the word COVID on it – and so much blue sky and color to assemble around it.
