Dear You

Dear you,

Yes, you. The intense photographer, the writer, the blogger. The one who wants to take that picture, write that story, publish that post.

But you got family to spend time with. Or friends. Or both. So you try to bring your laptop or camera along, hoping some inspiration will come your way, anyway. And voila! Inspiration comes!

Or you find out that you left your memory card inside your laptop, you left your memory stick in your laptop, you left your laptop on your desk, and you left your desk in your room.

And it’s pretty much a loss. Why even bring your camera if you don’t have the memory card? Or your laptop if your document’s on a different memory stick? Or if there’s no internet?

Meanwhile, you got people waiting who want to connect with you, want to catch up with you, want to know how you’re doing.

Piece of advice. Don’t cry over leaving your important laptop/memory card/ internet/whatever home. (Yeah, I know it was spilled milk, but oh well.) Spend time with those who are important, people.

There will be another sunset to take a picture of, there will be another hour devoted to word sprinting, there will be time to put that post up. But you’re not gonna always have your family and friends around.

And when do you get to take that picture, write that story, publish that post, it will mean more because in doing, you didn’t shut people out. We tend to do that sometimes. It’s not a missed opportunity if you’re spending time with those you love.Β 

We draw inspiration from life, from those around us. Not if we tune them out. Remember that.

Sincerely,

Me

P.S. 4 days til Camp NaNo, my friends. 4 days! Start strong, and end strong. But remember who, and Who, is most important.

Also, if you’re wondering how I’m able to get so much posts in, this is scheduled. XD
