Happy Friday everyone!
If you’re anything like me the weekend is where you get to reboot before the week day starts again. This is the weekend I work, so I will not be doing much of anything. However, I did try something new today.
I am working on my second book! If you’re not familiar with my first one, you can check it out here. My second book raises awareness to alcoholism and drug abuse. I typically write at home on my couch or in my bed. It is one of the places where I do most of my thinking and I feel the most creative there. If you live in Michigan, you know you have to get out while the weather is good.
I decided to write the next chapter of my book in another location today. I though it would be a great idea to write outside or at my mothers house next to the balcony. To my surprise it was on of the best decisions I made today. I went to my mothers house and sat next to the balcony in the backyard. I put in my headphones and the ideas stared flowing!
I am writing this post today, to tell you all to try something new! If you become accustomed to doing the same thing every single day, you will start to drive yourself crazy. You will miss out on the beauty that life has to offer you. If I would’ve stayed home today, I don’t think I would’ve came up with a plot twist in my book (I am not going to tell you what it is. You will just have to purchase your copy when it is available). I can promise you that I would of had came up with an excuse to not write the next chapter in my book. I would’ve said something like, “I am tired and I need to relax my brain today”.
Every time I get on social media or read the news, I hear about someone passing (majority young people). If God gives you another 24 hours, try something new. Do something that your future self will thank you for. Do something that will get your creative mind flowing. If you have read any other of my posts, you will know my favorite thing to say is “you only get one life to live, so make it count!”
It is the weekend! Enjoy this time with your family and friends. Get out there and try something new (fishing, swimming, jet skiing, a new hair style, etc.). I hope you all have a great and safe weekend.
