Ding Dang Dong Dawg!
That’s all I have to say today but it doesn’t really do justice to the way I’m feeling right now. This weekend was eagerly anticipated and was by no means a disappointment. I’m still super stoked. In fact I invited quite a few folks I know (who claim to be ‘writers’) to the once-a-year Writers Workshop, an event at the local library; unlike the other ‘busy’ friends, there was so much learning going on in my brain I’m sure smoke was coming out of my ears!
There’s something about being around a group of eclectic energetic out-of-the-box creative types that seems to light my writing fire like nothing else I’ve found. My poor husband demanded to know how much coffee I’d had when I got home… because I was almost bouncing off the walls… which seems to happen every time I get in my element. He gets a tad manic when fixing cars, btw, so he really shouldn’t point fingers. Just sayin’.
Hosea 4 verse 6 says that God’s people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. And I was. For many years. But more on that in a little bit.
This week I also discovered a new hero. Dan Hall. If you have time, the interview below is definitely worth listening to. A paraplegic who can find the funny in life? Yeah, that gets major koodles from this random redhead. There aren’t a whole lot of people I’d like to meet but he’s definitely one of them. Along with John Maxwell. And Nick Vujicic. Another guy you just have to love. Tetra-amelia means nothing to him, he’s irrepressible. When I have the inevitable hedgehog-day we all get sooner or later all I have to do is think of Nick and I realize I have no problems.
I hope you’ve found your calling and that you’re walking in it today. If not, you might want to think about it. There’s nothing worse than living your whole life and never discovering your destiny. Unfulfilled purpose takes a toll on the soul. It took me 42 years but I finally find mine. It totally revolutionized everything. I hope you have too.
Kari happy writer and sharing it
