I sat here thinking; What do I write? What do I say and how do I explain my absence?
My defensive self began to immediately declare all the excuses I could muster.
Here are a few for your amusement:
I was lost for weeks in a sea of love and almost drowned.
I was abducted by the French Mafia. ( but they surrendered me)
I ate amazing food and drank fine wine until I felt so filled with absolute bliss.
It was too damn hot here to write.
I laughed until four in the morning and was crazy silly.
I spent time in the hospital.
I tried to become a groupie with the Tour de France teams… ( I liked the yellow jersey)
I slept in, played hard, made love, and soaked in the beauty.
I simply forgot to do it.
I felt absolutely lazy!
I attended a workshop where no cellphones nor labtops were permitted. Is that possible in today’s world?
I went into a deep place of inner reflection. Scary sometimes!
It is his fault, her fault, the dog’s fault.
I lost my inspiration. Well, it went on vacation too! Let me know if you find it.
I felt guilty for not writing and then — you guessed it… ate more guilt and did not write.
Lists and lists came up for me… more excuses… BUT time to get real.
The most true to my heart is..I own that I just needed a break..
Do you see all the excuses that you tell yourself? The ones that keep you from being or doing what brings you love and happiness. You are worth it . Do you know that? You are! We all are!
What excuses do you tell yourself? Make a list today. Challenge your excuses. Have fun with them.
lots of love, Lo
