I’ve never written for a blog post series, or quite frankly anywhere (not even in my beloved journal) for 31 days straight. I knew this exercise would be a challenge for me the moment I signed up, especially given the topic I’ve chosen. And while its a great thing to be moved past your point of comfort to unknown and stretchy places so you can learn and grow–the day I feared in these 31 days has surprised me by coming quicker than I anticipated…
What do I say next?
Though I’ve blogged before as a travelling actress, it really was only to narrate my specific adventures in musical theatre touring. Blogging daily not only about your life, but your thoughts, philosophies, questions, and musings is not as easy and whimsical you might first think. However, whether or not my words are read by one person, or more than a handful, I’m finding it’s surprisingly rewarding. We live in an incredible time period where we can write whatever is on our minds, and with a simple click of the button, send it out into the Internet universe for any ones eyes to see.
This daily writing exercise is not for the faint of heart….
I am most definitely still in the thick of the active waiting process in my everyday life. I must say its a wonderful opportunity to attempt to see beauty in every moment. I’m still waiting regarding my recent audition and my husband’s job prospects I blogged about a few posts ago. Usually I stew over and wonder about the outcome with worry, but I’m thrilled to say this writing adventure is making these moments I live anything but sluggish and stagnant.
Active waiting is helping me in little and big ways each day.
I’m learning to:
- continue the practice of taking in each moment as a glorious gift
- be content right where I am
- delight more in my daily devotional time
- worry less.
- be grateful for the gift of things moving slowly, instead of frantically trying to rush them and worry about the outcome…
I delight in saying….
What are you waiting for today? And what are you learning while you wait for it?
