“A Token As You Walk Away And A Life Between Pages”

I just loved this post by Anna. It had me thinking…While there have between times I contemplated walking away, I know I just couldn’t do it. But if there were two tokens that I could take with me, from one life to the next, it would have to be the love that has been given to me, and the love that I have to give. It is something that I didn’t know I had until I lost it. And for years I muddled around thinking I never had it all, or would never be able to find it. It soothes me, calms me, and heals me. And without it, I wouldn’t be who I am today.
What would your tokens be?

If you were to walk away from your life, leave everything and everyone you know behind, never to return to the Life you know ever again.  What is the one or two items – not more than two – would you take with you.  This item does not have to sum up the life you are leaving behind, it can be something of love/joy/pleasure, a sad memory you want to keep.  A future you have in your mind to build.  It is not an easy decision to make, but all you will have is this token or two that means the most to you.

Have you ever felt you want to walk away from all you have known.  You can and will go wherever you want in this World, be a new person, become whatever you have always wished to become, dreamt about.

A Trail of Inspiration

writing101day5: let social media inspire you

I do not have to become lost in Twitter to find inspiration. All I have to do is open up WordPress and start reading…

Are you hungry? How about checking out Lynn or Feeding on Folly? My favorites, so far, are Samosa’s My Way and Overnight Iced Tea. They are pretty great storytellers too.

Eat too much? Need some motivation to get you off the couch? Visit Paula or Kat. Their honest protrayals of their struggles will help to influence you to be more physically fit. I just linked to their about pages, but you should read one of their posts to receive the full effect, here or here.

Need a writing prompt? Visit Nicola for her Stellar Six Word Story Challenge. Want to write about something a little more personal? How about Impromptu’s Sandbox Writing Challenges? Feeling nervous about posting? Need some Anonymous Courage? Just remember Colette’s words “today is always a good day to try”. And if that is not enough, just repeat my new mantra, stolen straight from Sarah with her “This n that tip: Be brave, just write, you don’t have to be perfect, just write.”(How perfect is that?)

Please keep in mind that this is only a very small portion of the wonderful words that have motivated me . So please, all of you, keep writing, keep posting, keep inspiring. One day, I hope to able to inspire you too.
