I spent about two and a half hours with my doctor the other day trying to decide what I need to do to get to "stay here". I have known for sometime I had to change my eating habits and my life style if I want to live a few more years. I realize too we all need to eat a balanced diet. There also needs to be balance in our lives.
I don't have a problem with the diet and exercise, it's the "balance in my life."
She said I need to balance work, rest and play (leisure). I remember thinking, you're kidding...right? Rest and play? Without guilt?
I'm trying. Trying to find a balance in my life. I spent several hours working out a schedule. So many hours for writing, so many hours for everything else.
When I came to writing, I couldn't put it on the "work" side. It was then I realized how important writing is to me. I don't like edits, which is where I am with one manuscript right now.
I also realized my frame of mind when I "let myself" just sit and write. I feel guilty!
Wow, what's up with that?
I decided to list writing in both columns. Work and leisure.....
What keeps you from writing? Is it really your passion?
I would love to hear from you.
