Everyday I Write The….


I could say that another chapter in my life has closed, but truthfully it never really felt like a chapter as much as a footnote. It never felt right, never felt like it was really part of MY novel or at least the one I have been writing for the past 50 years.

I think that maybe for too long I have been listening to my head more than my heart. That’s not a bad thing. It can keep you out of trouble, but it can also keep you from enjoying the story.

There is nothing wrong in doing what makes you happy; no need to feel guilty doing it. It’s what you work for, and maybe you’re surprised at first that you finally got to that place. The journey for some takes longer than others, some never finish at all. Others never dare let themselves arrive.

Don’t be afraid to go there.

there is a constant battle between the head and heart...our hearts often win, and it hurts sometimes when our heads do...intrigued at what corner you turned, but wish you a well journey from here...

This is very insightful, Tracy. I agree...this last episode was not truly a part of your story. Sorry the last day was such a trial. (Bill told me the rest of the truck story)

I do have fears to go some places,
because life is unpredictable,
Thank you for the beautiful words.

Beautiful...I have always made my decisions with my heart - good or bad, smart or stupid...that's me...!! It's all in the journey, baby...all of our destinations are the same! Enjoy this new chapter and you are definitely right - that last thing was just a tiny footnote...(and I have had many of those myself.) I love you and miss you so! xxoo :)
