It was one of those days when I was just super happy. An extra bounce in my step. An brighter twinkle in my eye. A bit more sparkle in my smile.
I’m at yet another scene transition and to be completely honest…I suck at transitions. I think about my characters daily, I mentally check in on them, and they are developing nicely. But I can’t seem to get to the next point.
So instead of wallowing in self pity of another wall I must climb with my busted elbow…I came back to my other favorite thing to do. Ummm, my other favorite thing besides writing and reading.
Crochet! Kro-shay…the least sexiest word on the planet.
But it’s hella fun to do!
It was exactly a year ago today that I heard the commencement speech that Steve Jobs gave to Stanford in 2005. I heard the words above and something clicked. Something inside me brightened. I saw that he was absolutely correct. How happy could you be living the ideals of someone else? How could you feel at peace with yourself knowing that it’s not you that’s directing your own life?
It was that day, that epiphany, those words, that put me where I am today.
