Have You Hatched Yet?

Okay. First of all, blogging every day is a challenge. Some days don’t include enough quiet time to concentrate enough to really write a good blog. Or what I think might be a good blog. Ha! And when there is enough quiet time, there’s work to do to pay the bills. I love freelancing, and am grateful. That saying about how the grass is always greener on the other side is certainly true. Positives and negatives are part of life, connected to practically everything. If we always waited for perfect moments, nothing would get accomplished.

And I bet you have your own challenges trying to carve out extra time — or to harness time — don’t you? Well then, we’ll just have to adapt to what’s in front of us right now and concentrate on this moment, which leads to the next moment, and all the other moments that add up to finishing what we’ve started. And pretty soon, we’ll get to where we need to be, to do what we need to do, giving birth to our visions.

Could be a vision to build a house, make a cake, create a poem, weed a garden, write a letter, clean a room, paint a landscape, knit a hat, research the family tree, compose a song, plan a trip, develop a story, organize a closet, take a class, run a marathon, plant sunflower seeds… And if you’re still not sure, just pick something and start from there and see what happens.

But whatever you decide, and whatever I decide, let’s promise each other we won’t back out and just sit here. I don’t want to be “just an ordinary, decent egg” … and I bet you don’t either. There’s too much living to do. So … on to hatching!

“It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.”
— C. S. Lewis

Happy Sunday, everybody!

  1. Hi,

    I love the egg concept. Yes, I want to be a bird! So I’ll continue on the pecking involved in hatching.

    So happy to see this beautiful blog.
