You can’t take it with you

I have been struggling to fit my writing into the daily routine. Any writing that is. By the time you get to the end of the day, it is a struggle to find the motivation. I have two day jobs and three children, a mortgage and a loveable cat. Any parent will tell you that is a heck of a lot of work and responsibility. But I usually find the time. Without your passion for life, it just becomes one long chain of drudgery. I don’t know about you, but that is not what I signed up for. I focus on the joy. My children bring me joy most of the time 🙂 Hey just keeping it real. I love teaching. I love to write. I should make time for that. I do not want to wake up in 20 years and regret my life. Sure, I lead a very busy life and I like it that way. But I also know what is important to me. I will not have any regrets on my death bed. I will look back on my life see that the relationships were important, especially the one with myself. I strive for that connection with my spiritual self, my family and my friends. The material stuff, well you can’t take it with you. Love and light to you all.

  1. I agree! Before I started blogging, I think I felt a little empty. I have two wonderful children, and they do keep me busy, but the writing is something I need to do for myself. It kind of completes me (in a non-Jerry Maguire sort of way). Happy writing!
