“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bounds. Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.”
“Yes, I’ve made a great deal of dough from my fiction, but I never set a single word down on paper with the thought of being paid for it … I have written because it fulfilled me … I did it for the buzz. I did it for the pure joy of the thing. And if you can do it for joy, you can do it forever.”
You've made it 7 days!!!
How do you feel? Has the pain are breaking habits and creating new been a challenge for you? They surely have been for me but today felt good and the streak goals I set out to work on this month are becoming more of a routine and very enjoyable. The greatest challenge I've had in the past 7 days was just finding their place... finding how to fit them into my day so I remained balanced and peaceful. I think I've found it and look forward to the remainder of the month.
Today I spent a large amount of time taking my work out! As a writer I love to get out in nature and breath it all in. When I am at our home in Czech I love visiting the local castles on a regular basis and even as often as I go I still feel like I can't get enough of them. Today I was at Lednice. It's 5km from my house and absolutely breath taking. My mind wonders to what life was like so many years ago when noble families walked the grounds of the gardens... As a Floridian and not a huge fan of hard winters I think to what it was like to experience winters here hundreds of years ago...
I felt inspired by the scenery and got alot of writing in both in the books I am working on and new poems were birthed. I am truly thankful to be able to see this part of the world. My perspective on life changed dramatically when I left the US and saw many different ways of living and tasted the flavor of other cultures. Life is a gift and it's important we get out and enjoy it.
Where would you like to explore? Do you dream of traveling or even visiting a neighboring city or state?
Think of ways today in which you could make the dream become a reality and go for it...
If you have no plans or no time to travel now how about just getting out in your town and try to take it in as if a tourist... walk slowly... look at the landscape... the architecture... try a new restaurant!
Here's a few photos of Lednice
Have a beautiful day friends and let's keep streaking!
