“No one is useless in this world who lightens the burden of another.”

Charles Dickens.

 

Hey guys,

I love this quote. I believe to give your life to help others, is the ultimate purpose and no matter what we do in our jobs etc, wherever you find yourself, serving others is so important in this world.

Have a nice weekend. Stay safe.

Kind regards, Suz

Life and writing…

Hey guys, this week has been tough. The whole world is in turmoil at the moment, and personally there are quite a few things that are difficult for me at the moment. Family things with siblings health and personal things in my own life as well. I find people are often harsher than I think they will be, which shocks me. I know I am not perfect either to other people but I try to be sensitive to people’s feelings. This week I was shocked by harshness and it was painful. I feel like I am more optimistic or idealistic than other people, and then the reality of this sets in for me when other people are not the same. I am shocked back into the reality that people don’t think the way I do. Some do, and some don’t.

Anyway, let’s move on to my writing, I found this week with my novel I have hit a road block. The part of my novel I thought I would find the most straight forward to write – I am finding the hardest. This part of my novel is the part that is somewhat representative of my own life and experience. I am finding it hard as I have to choose what parts of my life to include, the characters that I write about as well and what not to include.

My novel writing is the thing that makes me feel alive and doing what I am meant to, (my faith in God makes me feel hopeful,) and this week it has stalled. I need to just keep going. I need to find my way back into the novel and what is happening. I will seek to do that today. Soon, I will be teaching more and my energy will be focused on this. I wanted to have a whole draft completed before then but this does not look realistic now. It is close though.

Anyway, it is a beautiful day and there is much to be thankful about. I am thankful for family, sunshine, health, flowers, the ocean and the beach and the mountains. One day I hope to be travelling again, because that is when I feel most alive and engaged. But then again I value being in one place as well, especially as I am able to create. Life is balance.

I hope you are finding joy in the little things. Feel free to comment if you wish. Have a peaceful day. Love Suz.
