Sometimes You Just Gotta Do What You CAN Do!

Updated on January 29, 2015

Writing I believe is really is a sort of vocation, even if you don't make much money or any for that matter. Something or someone (God) may be calling you to write, and writing is so relaxing.

Right now, there are a lot of things I would like to be doing. I would like to be taking care of my mom- which is not an option, not living with her anyhow, but I need to make more time to visit her because I truly enjoy her company. I also love spending time with other family. I helped take care of my elderly father for 3 years before he passed and it was very rewarding! I live with my cat and often I find I feel it is not everything I want. But for now, it is what it is. Maybe I will find a way to volunteer with the elderly. I used to go visit them in my free time.

This winter has been oppressive, just like the past couple years. So what CAN I do? I can write. I can tell people how useful writing is. I just published my fourth book. This one has over 50 poems. It's called "Love From The Heart." The poems were written in the past five years about love, God, and various random subjects like nature and music.

Looking forward to this!

Well, that was not what I had planned to do. (Sell my book!) But that's the great thing about writing, you don't always know where it will take you! I actually never thought I was capable of writing and not knowing how things will turn out because I thought that's what fiction novelists did, but I guess even if it's just a 500 word article, it's the same basically.

I'm smiling inside now, because just talking or writing rather about this has put me at ease. I've been mostly frustrated with the weather and feeling like I don't have control over a few things I just have to accept like finding a decent boyfriend who loves me and who is mature and someone I like but, that's another story in itself!

It's really been a long time since I wrote about how I feel. Sometimes I don't have much to write about. But a lot of times I have thoughts about God, and I think people may not want to read that---but I should write anyway! Writers should write!

I've been visiting a lot of hubs on here and leaving comments. It would be nice if I could make that a daily thing. I don't like to write for money. I don't think that's fun. I can just write and see what happens. That's what I've always done on here and I truly believe that writing should come from inspiration!

So, you do have to do what you can and right now for me, and maybe you-- it's writing! I will continue to do that, and whatever I can until my next opportunity arises! Have a great day!

Now For A Fun Song!
