watching the show

Salut kids,

This writing business is tough and when you aren’t sure where you are standing, it’s best to rest the hands and the heart. Lately, I have felt a little lost in my writing. Where is it going? Can I do this? Am I lost? Am I losing time? Should I be trying a different angle? Like all things in life, cultivating a passion is difficult, but in the end it’s the only thing worth investing in when one is tired and broke, because it all leads back to creating one’s self. If we’re going to be broke and tired, it might as well be for the right reasons.

We don’t all have the guts to do what we love. However, there was a time when I didn’t, either. Not having the guts to do IT (or look for it) is not a permanent status. This can change, if one allows it to.

If you don’t have the guts to do something, just read about people who do. You can’t stand and watch someone shine without it spilling on to you. It will slowly begin to light a fuse inside that you won’t be able to stop— curiosity is dangerous like that. Sometimes we need to watch the show in order to want to be a part of it.

So, this goes out to the dreamers, even the ones that are not ready—we’re all in this together, my little fuses. Don’t fret—we must remember that we cannot all light up at the same time. A light show is best in parts.

Besos, Tone

Thank you for being here, for reading and commenting. I don’t own these words—they flow out of me through some unknown vessel. However, I am the one that musters the courage to release them and I thank you for your support of my doing so.
