“When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive—to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.” Marcus Aurelius
What wonderful words of wisdom floating down to us from long ago and far away! They remind us to be grateful, always, for the blessings we enjoy! As writers, we not only think, enjoy, and love—through our words, like Marcus himself, we are able to share what we now and what we’ve learned. Consider how wonderful this is:
We can share what we think: As writers, we have the gift of conveying our thoughts and beliefs through stories. Whether we write fiction or nonfiction, we create narratives that give life shape and meaning.
We can share what we’ve learned: Just living teaches us so much, doesn’t it? There are lessons we’ve learned through joy and hardship that light the way for others who travel with us and after us.
We can share what we enjoy and love: What ignites your passion and sparks your enthusiasm? Whatever it is, you can pass it on by bringing it to the page and to readers who may catch that same spark!
There are so many things in life that are waiting to be explored and shared! The heart itself is a territory that can never be fully mapped and charted. “Love is time and distance measured by the heart.” Proust said it, and how true it is.
Writing lets us conquer time and distance—just as Marcus did when he set his words down on paper and passed them on to us. What gifts we bring the world. Let’s share them on this bright new day as we all write on!
