Reflections for the week

As most of you know by now, I recently adopted a new fury writing buddy. He is now seven weeks old and he is so full of energy and love. He also teaches me to pace myself and to take time for the important things in my life. It’s strange that a kitten can teach a writer so much. But just watching my kitten teaches me a lot about life that I take for granted. Here are a few things that he shows me: 1. That love is much more important than a completed task. 2. That sometimes taking time away from the desk is a good thing, and it could give you perspective too. 3. That taking time to just be is so important for a writer. Without it, you are lost in an avalanche of continuous thoughts that may take you nowhere. 4. That life is about making each moment special and genuine. 5. That it is important to take time to breath deeply and to live deeply. 6. That all of God’s creatures should get enough sleep since without it we run on empty. 7. That we should take time to have fun. Without fun, we are boring creatures. 8. That we should take the time to look at things with intensity and genuinely. I only adopted Tobey four weeks ago, and he has already taught me so much. And is he ever growing too! ~ Irene
