Me & My Muse – Day 125: Switching Gears

If you have read some of my recent entries, I was a little negative.  I was upset and frustrated with the way things were going in my life.  Having a crappy job, not having my own place, that kind of thing.

To address that, I would like to apologize.  Attacking myself isn’t going to make anything better.  Not for you, and especially not for me.  The only one who can change things is me.  And if I don’t, things stay the way they are.

Having that said, it’s time to switch gears.  Life has taken me on an interesting ride, but I do need to remember that I have a steering wheel, and I can completely change the course of where I am going.  Life’s lessons are the past.  What I have before me is the future.  And I want that future to take me to the road leading to success….


Muse:  Feeling better finally?

I’m beginning to.  As you saw, I made some progress on my story last night, and I plan on making more progress today.

Muse:  There we go.  Just try to read more of the Silmarillion….

One step at a time…..Okay?

Muse:  Absolutely!  I’m not going to push you this time.

My goal is clear.  Aim for excellence.  If I miss my mark, I will still at least do a good job….

Muse:  In contrast, you don’t want to aim for good, or you could miss….

Missing good gets you poor results.  Missing the best will get you good results every time.  Now while we’re on the subject, let’s talk about this blog.  It needs a facelift.  Not so much the layout but the content.

Muse:  I’m still going to be around, right?

Of course.  I just want to work on the quality.  I don’t want anyone to waste their time reading these.  I want these posts to be an investment of time.

Muse:   Going back to what you said about change earlier….You said that only you can change things.  That may seem true from your perspective, but it is God that changes the heart.

That is true.  He can change it for the better or for the worst.  For the better by softening the heart and for the worst by hardening it.

Muse:  We both have work to do. You on your story and me on my romance novel.  Glad to see you’re back.


I call it a season.  I think the season is beginning to change in my life.  I’m hoping and praying that it’s for the better.

Today’s high is going to be 48 degrees and the silver lining will be having the day off and more progress on my story.

To those of you who are ready for change, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  I hope that he gets a full-time job soon.  That would be the best change that he would ever have in his life.
