Writing Wednesday

This is a day late.  I got engrossed in finishing “The Hate U Give” by Angie Thomas.  It was a fantastic read, well written and timely.  Please pick it up if you get the chance.

One of the goals for this blog this year is be more consistent and a little more focused.  I’ve been posting goals and some randomness but haven’t been overly consistent or focused, so this is an attempt to do just that.

Thanks to Ethan and Ray, I got a book of 400 writing prompts for Christmas.  Probably one of the more awesome presents this year (outside of my new Slytherin hoodie and a golden snitch watch necklace).

First Writing Wednesday Prompt:

What is your kryptonite and why does it have power over you?

The popularity of Superman and his vulnerability to Kryptonite has led to the generic usage of the term in popular culture as a reference to an individual’s weakness, similar to “Achilles’ heel“.[3]  

My weakness:  work?

Why?:  Because money makes the world go round and sadly, there never seems to be enough of it to go around.  I’ll do one job (a full-time that pays really well), then on days off, I’ll work something else, just to help make ends meet.  It sucks but that’s the lifestyle I’ve put myself into.  If I’m not working, I’m doing something because being lazy/unproductive sets me into a anxious/depressive cycle where I feel useless and like I’m a waste of space.  It’s sad but that is the way my brain works.

So not the most eloquent post.  The prompt brought back up a conversation I had last night about how much life is worth, especially since it’s been snowing.  The police were even saying, “If you don’t have to go out, stay home.”  I still wanted to work at delivery packages; got up, saw the roads, and said, “Screw it.”

Now, back to reading!

Quote of the Day:   “Beliefs have the power to create and the power to destroy. Human beings have the awesome ability to take any experience of their lives and create a meaning that disempowers them or one that can literally save their lives.” ― Tony Robbins
