How’s it going? I sat down to write this (or write something at least), and realized I have two ways I generally go about using ideas I come up with.
Anyway, let’s get to it.
Sometimes I use the first thing that pops into my head as I sit down to write, especially for the blog here. Other times, I jot down ideas as they come to me, and use those later.
Today it was more of a pop-into-my-head moment. I’m trying not to think about how August is over in two days. And do my best to be positive about what I’ve accomplished this month, no matter how much I think “other people” may be doing.
I have to realize that I’ll make mistakes, no matter what (which is a realization that’s been tough for me, because I hate making mistakes–and I mean it when I say that). That’s also why I never liked those “Erase all your past mistakes or get $1,000,000” or what-have-ya type memes on FB (but that’s the subject for another post).
Sometimes clients won’t need help right now, or may ignore me. I have to keep telling myself that their circumstances just don’t call for hiring a writer right this second, and move ahead, remembering to loop back in a week or two.
No matter what anybody says, I have the body, mind, knowledge, and circumstances that I’ve been given to make the most of.
Sure, I can add to things to make them better, but I’m the one who has to implement. Others can (and have) given me advice, which I’ll be taking, but I have to turn the knobs and click the switches in life, to a great extent.
Seems I turn philosophical toward the end of August. Must be the warm weather.
Until next time,
