IWSG POST 17: Writing & Motivation

Thank you so much!
Today, I’m digressing.
Today, I scratched my original post for a whole different reason.
I can’t stop smiling and I’m here to share my smile with you.
Sunday night, my kids’ preschool teacher came over for dinner. She brought over a couple of Dr. Seuss books and the stuffed characters to match. My kids quickly ran to their rooms and got out the rest of their Seuss characters, piled them all on the couch and set up a pretend classroom. They read all their characters books about themselves, teaching them important things to remember and asking them some really great questions. In any case, these stuffed characters go everywhere these days. From the breakfast table, to the same table at homework time, to bed, even piano practice.
Moments like these remind me of why I write. Not just because of the passion I feel when I’m crafting words. Not just because of the themes I want to share with the world to provoke thought and inspire hope.
My kids are the reason. Dreams. I’m showing them by dreaming, believing in my dreams, and doing, they can be anything they want to be if they’re willing to work at it.
“Oh The Places, They will,” most definitely go.
So today, no matter where you are in your writing world, you’re giving someone hope.
You’re putting in time and effort to achieve your dreams.
And other miracles?
