Thank Goodness for Pushy People/Good Friends

You know those friends that seem to get just a little pushy with your business on occasion? Well, I’ve got one of those.  He’s pushy.  Not so much like a direct push-you-down-the-stairs kind of way.  But a sort of nagging, poke-you-in-the-ribs, gently, nudging, kind of way.

I have been feeling less than inspired these days and this friend took notice.  We have become pen pals, of a sort.  Those of you too young to know what a Pen Pal is, look it up!  It’s fun!  I’ve found that he’s a terrific listener.  🙂  With everything that is going on in this world, it’s important that we stay connected in some way, even if it cannot be in a physical way.  Thank heavens for the internet, right?  So I now have this new “connection” with someone that I haven’t had before.  It’s been nice!

In a recent correspondence, my friend said to me,  “Just Write!  Don’t worry about what you do – Just Write and you can go back later and look at it again.
Not everything is a hit – Baseball players are stars with a batting average of .300 – only 3 out of 10 at bats with a hit.”

That is a terrific way to look at it, isn’t it?

I’m starting to get that itch again to write and have written a few things here and there.  That “spark” has begun again!

So, Thank You, Dear Friend, for nudging me, poking at me and most of all for being there for me.  ❤
