Before I began writing this morning, I read a little. Something from Brain Pickings caught my attention. These words of Jane Kenyon, the poet, resonated with me. Though written as advice to poets, they apply to everyone. This quote merits a place over my desk, a prominent place where it will be there to always remind me:
Be a good steward of your gifts. Protect your time. Feed your inner life. Avoid too much noise. Read good books, have good sentences in your ears. Be by yourself as often as you can. Walk. Take the phone off the hook. Work regular hours.
Thanks for sharing these words of wisdom. Everyone needs to embrace and internalize them.’
You are most welcome, sir! I was delighted to find it this morning; it’s exactly what I needed, as well.
Thank you for a good morning start! I really needed to read this!
