As you know, I have been less than a dedicated blogger, but the Blogging from A to Z Challenge invites everyone, even slackers like myself, to post just a short piece every day inspired by a different letter of the alphabet throughout April – every day except Sundays, that is.
Thanks to my wonderful daughter-in-law ( http://sweetteareads.blogspot.com/ ), I have boldly jumped into the fray of daily blogging – begining with the letter A. I go into this knowing that each day’s entry might not be the finest writing I’ve ever done, but it will be the basic act of writing, of posting, of sharing a snippet of life that matters most.
So share the link with friends, grab a big glass of sweet tea, stretch those fingers and type away!
A is for ACTION
Last night was wild with adventure – dreams of complicated houses and racing cars, staccato conversations and flitting characters. Those reckless dream-plots and frantic imaginary searches came from too much daily planning and too little real-life accomplishment.
But what the night lacked in peaceful slumber, it more than made up for in morning resolution.
Waking up to sunshine and fresh coffee, I vowed to walk away from stale procrastination, fuzzy intentions and someday promises that wilt away like fragile blossoms in a vase. This oath, made even before discovering Sweet Tea Reads’ link to the blogging challenge, demands an absolute shift in focus. Instead of being a ToDo person, I must become a HaveDone and WorkingOn person. Only through action is there satisfaction, pride, energy, gratitude, inspiration and yes – restful sleep.
So with that in mind, I venture forth to do something of note each day. To take action each day.
What do you plan to do today, this weekend, this Spring? Are you a procrastinator or a Oh-it’s-done-already person? What do you most want or need to accomplish? How do you plan to finish that task or complete that plan?
I wish you happy action-taking! Let me know how you’re meeting your goals!
