I must write

 Dear Readers,

Every day I face a dilemma that I must address.

I have a dream.

I want to write my book.  When will it happen?  Every day my fingers itch towards the power button of the computer.  Every day I ponder on the progress of my web designer who needs to fix my niggles of a no-comment blog system that isn't serving me well.  Every day I silence the frustration in me and Focus On What Is Important.

Every day I read.

Every day I read the words of The Inspiring Women Of My Life, and I am oh-so-inspired and wistful.  I want to write.  It is what my heart yearns for, Yet I need to focus on what's important.  My home, my kids, my Cortisol level.

The other day I pulled out my little book of Letters to a Young Poet to inspire my son on how to end a letter poetically, with a German flavour.  And I smiled as I read him my favourite bit with tears welling in my eyes and a lump catching my throat.

'Acknowledge to yourself whether you would have to die if it were denied you to write.  This above all - ask yourself in the stillest hour of the night: must I write? Delve into yourself for a deep answer.  And if this should be the affirmative, if you may meet this earnest question with a strong and simple "I must." then build your life according to this necessity."

Pursuing my dream of writing is to honour my Leader and Lover. And I am going to need the help of my Wise-Woman to get rapport with my little one, who will be really annoyed when she sees Mummy sitting at her computer clicking away.  Just as she is now!  I will also need the help of my Warrior, who will ensure I manage my time effectively, and also won't allow me to become so obsessed with writing that I forget What Is Important.

All good wishes for you, and may you be inspired to follow your dreams, too!
