Believe

I believe in beginnings.

I believe in love,

I believe in hate,

I believe in satisfaction,

I believe in greed,

I believe in light,

I believe in darkness,

I believe in more,

I believe in less,

I believe in beauty,

I believe in ugliness,

I believe in hope,

I believe in destruction,

I believe in dreams,

I believe in failures,

I believe in rest,

I believe in turmoil,

I believe in life,

I believe in death,

I believe in truth,

I believe in lies,

I believe in fullness,

I believe in loss,

I believe in best effort,

I believe in deceit,

I believe in heat,

I believe in coldness,

I believe in more,

I believe in less,

I believe in endings.

Writing Challenge – Day 7 – Start (Ugly)

I think Ugly is a better header for today’s challenge. It’s definitely a, make you pick your head up and look twice, kind of heading. But the point is to start. Because without starting something, even though it’s in bits and pieces and ugly, you’ll never get to anywhere beautiful.

Now that is inspiring and encouraging to me.

I’m taking this as an encouragement and a refreshment in attitude towards a piece that I’ve been working on yet it’s all in peices. It’s getting long and I have no idea how to piece it together. I have the beginning, ending and some of the middle. I even have 500 words of a part that after consideration, doesn’t seem to fit in at all. So, I’m going to commit to seeking out piecing this thing together. I’ll look forward to updating you once I’m done.

In the meantime… click here for a short thought on Ugly.

Oh, and a few days back I skipped a few days in these postings…

As I’ve been processing things in this challenge I’ve given myself permission to enjoy the days that I’ve posted without the pressure to “do it all”. When that pressure starts happening the fun and growth and joy in it seems to quickly dampen and that’s just no good. So, I’m incorporating those days in the challenge into my overall posture and just moving ahead and enjoying the view from where I am. (This is not as easy as it sounds but it is oh so refreshing!)
