I try to keep things from getting too personal, because I want to keep my writing life and personal life separate, but in this instance they are overlapping. This morning I lost someone in my family and it made me think, which is always a dangerous thing.
Why? We have so little time on this Earth, why do we spend time doing things that only make us a little happy? Why? Because, we have to in order to survive, i.e. money, food, etc. I get that I do, but it sucks sometimes. I would love to write all day and just lose myself in words, but I know right now in life that’s not feasible. For now, I have to steal moments in time to write and create and I can live with that, but it’s days like today, I remember every day that passes is another opportunity gone.
I could write a lot more, about how time is precious and to not waste it, but I’m in my head a little too much right now. I think if you’ve ever lost someone in your life you understand time is important. Whether it’s taking time to be with those you love or taking time to do something you love. Taking time, to take a risk and a chance and just go for it.
So, I’m just doing it, I’m holding onto these feelings… and I’m pushing forward. With that being said, I’m not waiting anymore, here is the link to my next book on Goodreads, please feel free to add it to your to-be-read shelves. A cover reveal is coming soon.
I’ll end with this… I always say, that we never know how many days we’re given, so be kind, love one another and be happy. <3
