May 26, 2016 Writer's Digest/ Make the Effort

Make the Effort
there are no guarantees    simply be willing    make a start
you never know where it will take you    you want to be a writer     write
you want to be a dancer    dance    you want to be a singer
sing    anything you want is possible     just begin
sometimes the beginning is slow    other times     you know it is what you were supposed to do
i remember in the beginning    before a piece of white paper     breathtaking
no…i didn’t know what to do    where i was going    or if i would get there
but I did know    it was just important to begin    in this moment
my kitty    pushes the studio door open    opening doors is new for him
yet he is willing    to try    wants to find out what is on the other side

I love this - the blank piece of paper that began your long journey, the kitten learning to open the door to see what's on the other side. Imagine his joy when he sees it is you!

I love your kitty - opening doors is still new for him. And I like that breathtaking start with the blank white paper. Whether painting or writing - that paper is a world of open doors and you just do it. Bravo!

If the kitten can so can we all... yes we just have to start, and I think that's why we are all here.

Yes! Many things I have tried were born by the desire to and. The willingness to jump into it. Great wisdom!
