Here with a few words on getting back to the craft.
Whichever craft your heart sings out to you.
Sure, it could be your love, love, love of crafty, sparkly home improvement projects. Your super new backsplash awaits! You know you have a pile of gems, some awesome adhesive, and some grout. Are you ready to dive in?
Could be that you are lately fascinated by tying flies for your favorite fly fisherperson's latest obsession and upcoming weekend away with the guys. Who knew you could earn a tidy side-sum by prepping precise gear to lure gilled ones?
Or maybe... maybe...
You are recommitting, or thinking about stepping deeper, into the skills of your heart's craft. That thing you do for a living that you were drawn to, that sucked you in, that you were once totally obsessed with and now have a lukewarm half-love for it.
I've recently banana-peel-slipped back into love with writing...
Quite by surprise.
I didn't know it was going to be email-writing that I'd be lured into, nibble on and get hooked by yet again.
But that's sometimes how love goes, right?
The blindside that reminds you that there you have a longing to improve everything about that thing... and a dream to spend time, focus and utter surrender with that task.
Love that makes you say....
Oh yeahhhh.... YOU!
It's YOU....my former and new beloved.
YOU, inspired and gave me everything... I see you with new eyes and recognize that you hold new possibilities for us together. We aren't done yet... and I still have more to give back to you.
It's like that sometimes with a person in a relationship, I know... that is one kind of love.
It's like that for me with my writing craft, which also offers me my livelihood as well.
What do you have going on? Does this resonate at all with what you do for work and life?
Wondering if you've fallen in and out of love with your work... because I know I'm not alone.
Let's get going, then!
Let's choose love... again and again.
It feels better... and business is better with it bubbling and budding in the mix.
Thinking of you!
