Blogging Challenge

I joined The Ultimate Blogging Challenge on June 30.

I was supposed to post every day in July, but because of all the heatwave stuff happening, I didn’t post the first three days.

To make up for it, I need to post extra a few days. I’ve also promised a guest post to someone this month, so I really better get writing. 🙂

Yesterday, I was asking for direction from my readers. One of the things I said was that there’s already a lot of other information on Tarot and Oracle card reading out there, and I was having problems seeing what I could add to the cacophony.

Today, I see this quote:

“Use what talents you possess; the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best” – Henry Van Dyke

Well, doesn’t that put me in my place.

And the funny thing is, I know this. I’ve advised people on this, frequently.

I know I can’t sing. I sing along to songs I like anyway.

I’m sure I’m not the best dancer, but when I feel like dancing, I do it.

I’m encouraging a friend to write regularly, even though he thinks he’s not as good as authors he reads.

It’s not about being the best in the world. It’s about doing something you want to do – pursuing something you feel the need to do, whether or not you get recognition from the world.

And maybe your (my) unique voice can reach someone, help someone.

What do you like to do? What holds you back from doing it?

Reason #47

Reason #47 why I need to get my stuff together. . .

Two weeks ago, I had to go across town and pay $30 for a TB to the only clinic that was open late. I had to go back 3 days later to have it checked.

Now, I can’t find the tiny piece of paper the doctor signed for my clearance. It’s not with my receipt. I’m certain I put it “some place safe.”

But now I can’t find it.

And I’ll need to drive across town again, during a week when I have to watch how much I’m driving, to beg the doctor to fill out another one.

Because I’m unorganized.
