Linda Hill’s stream of consciousness makes my Saturday blog different than my norm. It means instead of focusing on what repeatedly popped in my head, I need to focus on what popped in my head from her topic. A subtle difference but one I enjoy.
Linda has changed it up this week. She states that this is a repeat for her and she may repeat it again as the answers are so very different each time. I have not written from this fun prompt and to be honest I was going to “cheat” a little, but I did not.
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “open book, point, write.” Pick up the closest book to you when you sit down to write your post. Close your eyes, open the book, and place your finger on the page. Whatever word or phrase your finger lands on, write about it. Enjoy!
The closest book to me is the one on top of my stack on the end table next to the couch where I write. Proximity was her request. It led me to think about choosing another book under this one, but since this is all in fun I decided to go for it. I shall be a rule follower today. (Well at this for this assignment.)
The book title is: LETTERS TO MY FUTURE SELF. This wonderful little book, a gift from a thoughtful friend, is designed to make you think what you would want to tell your future self. I opened the little book and landed on “A Pep Talk For The Future Me.” I have not filled this letter yet. So here I go.
As is my usual goal I attempt to join my blog with her parameters.
I think everybody can use a pep talk at some point in their lives. Heck, I think I could use one every day. In fact it has become my new gig to tell myself I will be OK and I can survive whatever is going on in my life. Actually that has changed a little bit. I don’t think I need to just survive. I believe I need to fly.
I would tell my future self to enjoy all the beautiful things in my life as they are there for a reason. I would tell myself you have come so far in this life and look at what marvelous changes you have made. I would tell my future self that no matter what hardships or drama was surrounding me at any time, I can choose to rise above it and be happy. I would tell my future self that I am a good person, with a big heart, and a kind soul. I would tell myself to think things through as they are sans the drama of what they seem to be. I would tell myself I am loved and in this lifetime that is very important to me. I would tell myself that my future is bright and my wings need to spread and I need to fly with joy in my heart.
