I’m not done writing. Frankly, I hope I’m never done with it. Over the last few years, I’ve been thinking about writing, thinking about where to write, what to write about, how to turn this into more of a hobby…maybe. I guess I’ve been looking for inspiration.
When I started this blog in 2013 it was a way to get beyond the grief and loss I was still feeling a year after our grandkids moved back to Arizona with their mom. I’d read or heard that if I came from a place of gratitude I would find my way through the grief: I did. I committed to writing every day for a year. Although I stopped the daily routine of writing, I did not stop the daily thank you.
Recently, I’ve been using Audible to listen to books while I drive around for work or to run errands. It was purely accidental, an email offer in my inbox for a free trial and the book highlighted was: The Book of Joy, Lasting Happiness in a Changing World. I have been inspired and believe me, I was just as surprised as you might be. So inspired in fact that I needed to get a hard copy of the book and I ordered one after I finished listening the first time. I find myself now replaying the chapters on Forgiveness and Pillar 8: Generosity. The lessons to learn and relearn…believe me, so much inspiration to be found here, so you can expect more from me!
