I am here… April 9, 2010

This has been a tough week for me with regard to writing my blogs, and I am not thrilled about it. Earlier in the week, unexpected changes in my schedule made it too difficult to find the time to sit down and when I did make the time my mind was unable to find a topic that I could stick with long enough to get my ideas down on “paper”. Today seems to be another one of those days. I have been sitting in front of this computer (on and off) for two hours already, starting blogs, adding to ones I have already begun and just not feeling satisfied with any one particular direction. All the same having missed two days this week already, I did not want to miss another one entirely.

It’s not for a lack of topics that I have found writing so difficult this week. There are a lot of things on my mind that I would like to explore a bit but I am having a difficult time fleshing out those ideas in a way that fits with my blog. So, it looks like today will not produce anything substantial. And as I sit here absorbing that reality, ever-aware that I have to get my day going in other directions, one thing stands out for me – “sometimes the best that you can do is to show-up.” Not every day in our lives is going to be exciting, not every thought in our heads is worth sharing, and sometimes just being present is enough. Today I acknowledge that the best I can do, at least at the moment, is to be here. I do not know what the next moment will bring – but for now there is just the simple acknowledgment of my desire to move forward with this “blog project” and temporary pause in a more substantive input. Here’s wishing you the best of whatever your day turns out to be…

    You’re doing a great job, Lisa. Your honesty is inspiring.

    Bravo for showing up on the page! Sometimes it’s all we can muster — yet there is still something sacred about showing up, particularly when things are difficult. I hope next week you find more fulfillment in this practice. I for one was glad to find you here today. 🙂
