So is one of those filler words. Similar to like and very. These are words that are overused, really mean nothing, and don’t add anything to a sentence. If you are writing and you see “so”, “like”, or “very”, take a minute and rethink their use.
Recently I wrote about the significance of a handwritten love letter. There truly is something magical about putting pen to paper rather than just pounding away at a keyboard. If you are looking for some inspiration on what to write in a romantic note for Valentine’s Day why not look to literature.
I need to write more. My handwriting is starting to look atrocious and my hand cramps up when I write more than a sentence or two. In my youth, everyone always commented on how beautiful my handwriting was. I wrote with a flair for calligraphy.
I have a complaint or more like a pet peeve. I really dislike when people, especially women, try to be someone else. When they don’t embrace their own unique beauty and try to fit into a mold. The current mold I see everyone trying to fit in is the corsetted (waist trainer) waist, big butt, full body makeup, hair extension, overdrawn lips of the Kardashians.
Brain dumping has freed me up from the confines I had placed on myself about what is a journal and what is a list. It allows me to just get it all out and down on paper. It gives me power over my own thoughts and helps to curb my anxiety. By spending a few minutes each morning and/or evening writing down everything that is on my mind, I can free up my thoughts to concentrate and focus on the activities of the day.
One of the most important things I tried to get funders to understand was that tangible assets did not make a nonprofit run. Computers, paper, books, markers do not make a community center run. It is wonderful to find funders who will cover the costs of these items but the real work is done by the people. People who have families to support. People who need to get paid. Not only people but things like overhead costs of rent and utilities on the buildings. Money for transportation and childcare.
In celebration of this brand new year, I thought I would share some inspirational wisdom that we can all add to our Pinterest. This year on one Wednesday a month, I will be sharing some of my favorite quotes as part of #WednesdayWisdom. I will be pinning these quotes and more on this Pinterest board throughout the year.
When I read the Just Jot January prompt for today, the first thing that popped into my head was the robot on Lost in Space. Lost in Space was one of my favorite shows as a child. So I went in search of a Youtube video or something to share in this post for those of you who have no idea what Lost in Space was. Here is a clip I found:
