Reading is a rhythm of my life that has been absent. Reading is an essential part to my creative process. Reading inspires me to write.After two nights of reading, I began to write. And I loved it. I felt like myself again. As I explained this to my friend, he remarked,
Sometimes I feel like certain things we do or think about go away and we're okay with that. And then when they come back or we take them back, you gain a sense of how lost you really were without them without really knowing you were lost at all.I am still a long way off from writing for the sake of writing alone. But this week, I have taken back reading and this accomplishment feels enormous. I look forward to taking back other things that have been lost to me, including journaling, blogging, and photo journaling our lives.
What are the things in your life you want to "take back"? Let's challenge each other to create time and space for these things.
