Do It Over and Over and Over Again

I really appreciated Lisa-Jo's blog post today.  Actually, I really, really appreciated the quote she shared on her blog post today.  Sometimes I get stuck thinking that what I do should be revolutionary.  It should be different, unique, something no one has thought to do or say before.  But in 2014, that's a hard feat.  Impossible, is often a word that comes to mind.

So I appreciate Elizabeth Gilbert's words today.  It's okay I write about the same themes.  It's okay to do it over and over and over again.  Each time I seem to write about the subject of step-parenthood - this incredible journey that I am on - each time I say a few words about it, it's different.  I'm constantly growing and hopefully I'm always learning.  Today my thoughts and feelings are different from last week and can't seem to even compare to last month.

So I'm going to keep on writing and keep on talking and keep on doing.  Because the practice, the perfecting of my craft, is ongoing with no definitive end.

  1. I agree--I appreciated Elizabeth Gilbert's words so much, too. It's good to feel like it's okay to just be who and what we are, to do what we do, and just try to be the best at that...we don't have to start a revolution.


I love knowing who is reading!
