I GOT BACK TO WORK on the ebook
that stalled out and
has been waiting for a missing part to arrive.
I think it came in last week or the week before,
but I have the unfortunate habit
of letting things sit unopened
because if I take a peek
it’s on me to take the next step
and I’m not ready to open the file again.
Truth is, I lost my oomph
and have been looking everywhere for it,
except in the direction of the missing piece.
The middle is hard; it’s where a lot of people stop. – Ann Kroeker
we’re coming up on the last of a 5-parter
and how work gets done
not impulsively but with planning
not disorderly but methodically,
in his story
each assigned a section
closest to home.
We are not where we are by accident.
The view out of our window
has been given as a gift.
There, right there, is the place to
take our tools each day
and apply them
for the season we are there.
So much time is wasted
wishing we were working
on someone’s else’s assigned section
while ours lays waiting
for us to bring our tools
and dive in.
Nothing good gets started without getting to work. And nothing great gets finished without staying at the work.- Ann Voskamp
