I decided I wouldn't write a blog post tonight. I had come upstairs an hour ago to write but felt uninspired. I could think of several possible stories and even knew I could muddle through a few observations to get something typed up, but I didn't feel like settling.
I went to brush my teeth and turned off the lights. I gave myself permission to crawl into bed and to write a post or two tomorrow instead. After all, my goal of writing 365 posts in 365 days doesn't mean I have to write EVERY day, right? So I made the decision. I would just go to bed. I'd fall into my pillow and let my head rest. No writing tonight.
It got me thinking about a lot more than my writing. Big things. Little things. Love. Hate. Sadness. Happiness. Life. Death. It can all be quite dizzying at times.
What a wild ride we're on. What an absolutely WILD ride. But you know what? Sometimes you just have to let the crazy stuff happen.
