3, 2, 1 Lift Off!

Nah, it’s not as exciting as the title — for you, I suppose. For me — pretty dayum!

Yesterday was a fairly decent day as far as days go lately. Most likely because I spent most of it 2 hours away. Days out of the area almost always tend to be better. Go figure.

The culmination of it all — and the thing that most excites me — is that for the first time in a very long time, my sleepy state of relaxation allowed my brain the freedom to compose. I can’t remember the last time that’s happened to me. It was strong and clear and it made sense. So good in fact, that I grabbed my phone to jot it down in a notepad app until this morning.

It began with a single line — and at first I was like, “Eh, I’ll remember that for tomorrow’s writing session.” But when it played through a second time and added the second line, and a third — well, I realized I needed to embrace the inspiration and encourage the development and that if I thought I’d actually remember come morning I was a damn lying fool! So every time I thought I was done and put my phone aside to once again rest my head upon the pillow, another line developed and once again I was adding to the note file on my phone.  If the universe sees fit to allow this to become status quo again, you’ll hear no complaints from me!!

Even more fabulous — there was not a negative thought or expression among the entire thing. Upon review this morning, I am quite pleased with the beauty, simplicity and sheer honesty of the result. Definitely something I will want to be working on at a future point.

It might not seem like much from an outside perspective, but from where I sit and struggle, it’s a huge thing.

Maybe I’ve knocked another link off the chain 😉
