E is for Energy

At 5:30 on a weekend morning I wasn't sure if I had the energy to crawl out of bed and begin a "too early" day.  But if I want to finish this story I have to find the time when I can.      

It's what it takes to push past the bit of bad news on another manuscript that lands in my inbox this morning.  It's the opinion of one publisher, there are others and there are other manuscripts.  But it takes energy to move on.


 That stuff we find in energy drinks but there's none around this morning.  A cup of coffee is going to have to do.  The sun is just coming up but first I've got to get those Basil seedlings near a window.  They've been sitting on the hot air register all night warming in their little plastic food tray turned temporary green house.  With the seedlings looking happy, it's off to make the coffee.


It's what gets us through the day, and it's what makes some people achieve amazing things and overcome incredible obstacles.  When I think of those people I realize I have plenty of energy to get over the obstacles in my life.  So far, I've been blessed.

I believe all kinds of energy serve as fodder for our emotional range and creative waves: physical energy, spiritual energy, energy generated by the love of friends, lovers and family--and the love of life itself! Very insightful post, Ryshia!

I agree - there is energy everywhere and we can attract both good and bad.

I like your E word. It's so important, but I hadn't thought of it using this word. I think of drive or passion or follow-through. But you're right, work takes energy. Nice choice!

Hi Bradley - I think of energy because I do a lot of my writing very early in the morning. So getting out of bed is the energy and drive and passion are what make me want to do it. And of course, all of that takes energy.
