Writing From Prompts (NaBloPoMo Day 9)

I’m having a really hard time with these December NaBloPoMo prompts. It’s not them; it’s me. It’s this time of year. It’s my life, this season, this topic- Joy.

I am trying. I’m trying to live. To be. Wife, mommy, boss, colleague, friend. Present. I’m trying to enjoy, while remembering; while missing. Constantly.
I’m trying not to cry when I hear Christmas music. Any music. To remember when it made me happy and go there instead. To dance and sing. To hug and smile. To write.

But, the majority of the December NaBloPoMo prompts just aren’t working for me. I’ll keep writing every day and I’ll try to publish my posts daily, but I’m trying not to be too hard on myself when I either don’t find/take the time or (more often) just can’t bring myself to finish or share what I write.

  1. We can’t be hard on ourselves. Life has been hard enough on us for a lifetime. We’re dancing as fast as we can. Love and Peace.

  2. Please continue to write. I’m connected to to your words and I can’t explain it. I find myself checking for something new hourly and re- reading over and over the older posts. I wanted you to know that I think I can see your heart through your words I feel every word. Thank you from someone who is trying to be a better mom because of your journey.

    • Thank you, Sheila. I’m going to try to post daily again this month, but it will probably be closer to weekly. 😉
      Best wishes for health and happiness in 2015 -M
