Writing: Finding Everyday Inspiration

Everyday Inspiration,   Day One Why Do I write: I write because it helps me say what is lodged in my brain. I try to help anyone who asks me , even if what they want is not within the scope of things I can do, still I look for ways to be of service to my friends and acquaintances. It happened to me recently,I tried my best, but what I thought will help was a disaster, something I thought would help didn’t. The reply I received stunned me, made me feel so small. I promised myself if I’m not able to do what I was asked, I should not suggest someone else’s name.  This is a lesson I learned.  ……………………………………….. 😦

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for sharing this post!

    I recently read a quote by Ernest Hemingway. He said something very similar to what you share here about the need to release something that is lodged in the brain. It’s as if we can release it through our fingers (i.e., writing or typing) into the world.

    • Dear Robert,
      Thank you so much for your comment. Even though what I experienced spoiled my day, I appreciate your thought, it did lighten the load I carried.

      My mother once said, whatever you do there will be criticism, so my question, ‘what must I do?’ The reply, you’re not allowed to ask either. 😦
