Don’t Lose What Makes You, You

August 8, 2013 § 2 Comments

I have a slight obsession with the show “One Tree Hill” a.k.a. “OTH.” I think I am on my second watch through of the entire series. I don’t know why I never watched it while it was on air but thank God for Netflix; am I right? I am currently on season three and Nathan has told Haley not to lose the music because it is part of her. I stopped to think, what makes me who I am? 

I honestly think writing is part of who I am. I wrote a lot when I was a kid. I remember asking my second grade teacher if I could write more than a paragraph for our daily journal. Can you say teacher’s pet and nerd? I am sad that for about a year I lost my writing and I almost never wanted to do it. There were various reasons for losing my passion for writing. I don’t know why I ever let anyone push me away from my writing. It is a God-given talent.  Thankfully, I have found my love for writing and that’s why this week you have gotten something from me almost everyday. 

My pray for today is that if you have lost what makes you, you, the spark that is left will ignite a fire. Let that fire consume your passion to be able to do what you love again. It’s a sad, sad world when you can’t be doing what you love. 

Oh, and today things that have brought me joy: awesome music playing on my “The Killers” station on Pandora, drinking some yummy coffee and stepping outside to feel a cool breeze.
