I have taken a bit of a break from blogging over the last few months. Quiet contemplation mixed with some fishing, kayak adventures, exploration of vanlife and “just being”. The Rocky mountains are in my backyard so I spent most of the late spring and early summer roaming through the forest while trekking up some rocky trails. It was blissful.
I am a doer. Most people tend to use a lot of words that are never acted upon. I wouldn’t say I am much of a planner. I have been accused of not planning enough and some have said it’s a challenge to connect. I find that if I spend a large amount of time planning something it’s less likely to happen anytime soon.
So how do you find the words that motivate action?
Spontaneity has value and can take you on amazing adventures that are unexpected. If you aren’t careful though you can find yourself in the future wondering where all the time went. Words put to paper help track the time. Bring into focus where we have been and narrow the options of destinations yet to explore.
One of the reasons I started this blog was to help me to record my words, sort through things I am interested in and share with others ideas that we may have in common.
It’s autumn once again. This time of year the change of the seasons prompts me to reflect and take stock of how I am doing. My birthday falls in September. I only have a couple of years left of my 50s. It has been a good decade for me. I have learned many new meanings to words while finding my truths and have gained understanding of others narratives.
It’s been a challenge to detach old thinking and behavior and yet….
I own my words, thoughts or perspectives and accountability for the consequences.
I don’t own your words, thoughts or perspectives or am I accountable for the consequences that may follow you.
In these words I can trust to propel myself forward. In these words I can find a sense of self.
