That’s the equivalent of time.
Of course we all want it to speed by at times… to get to the end of winter like all of us these last few weeks, to get out of work at the end of the day or week or to get to a vacation, moving day, new job, etc.
But, at the same time, with each day that passes, so does a day of our lives that we can’t get back. We have only memories of the days and we can take that information and move forward with the lessons we learned but we can never move backwards and we don’t get do-overs!
All of what we learn can be used to move forward and move into different roles. Maybe I don’t want to do nursing hands-on anymore but I love the teaching side of it and I am loving this new writing gig as I’m still taking from my wealth of knowledge and sharing it with the world!
I submitted my first article last week and got paid. The wonderful person I’m doing these for sent me five articles that had been written and asked if I would review and edit.
Unfortunately the flow, the sentence structure, the, well, everything, is pretty disastrous so I’m finding myself doing a lot of rewriting rather than editing. Okay, I’ll take the pay-cut on these five to do but it has also been a learning curve for her because as I send her the rewrites she has been in awe! Her words to me when I did a fast rewrite of about a paragraph and a half of one of the articles she sent me… “Honestly, it’s like I’m having an epiphany…mind blowing…”
So I work at my own edits of my Christmas Judge story and I work at her edits. I now have two complete and will push on!
So even when you push past days and times in your life to reach the better days and times make sure you take with you the experiences you gained from those days because you just never know when it’s going to crop up in your writing without you even knowing it!
Of course the last two days have passed in a flash for me and I have yet to remind you that my books have been free the last two days in celebration of SPRING! So hurry, don’t miss out on these.
