Waaay back in June 2007 when I started this blog I made a promise to myself.
I would not use it as a place to whine about my life. I promised that I would only talk about my life as seen from a humorous or inspiring viewpoint.
Sometimes that's been easy, Other times it's been hard.
Here lately it's been hard. Which is a part of why I really haven't written much for the ol' blog in awhile.
Now, as a part of giving the next women's retreat that I went on in January, I am to write up the story of my life. I've procrastinated this to the maximum extent. I'm scheduled to read it for my group next Tuesday!! So I finally sat down to start writing. Now I realize just why I didn't want to do this! It's a long, sad, story. There's nothing to laugh about there. Really, there isn't. I don't wanna write it or read it and I can't imagine why anyone in their right mind would want to listen to it!!
I keep thinking if I just find the right approach the humor will show through. It's GOT to be in there somewhere, right?
I can't find it. And believe me I've looked. I looked with a candle, I looked with a flashlight, I looked with a spotlight and a fine toothed comb. I tried setting it to music, I tried to make it rhyme, I tried to put it in the rhythm of a banging drum. I read it upside down and backwards and sideways too. It just doesn't make me laugh no matter WHAT I do!
So now what?
Well, the one thing that I find when I look over the story is perseverance.
Matter of fact I always have been kinda stubborn!
Therefore I shall keep on writing, till my story is told. Reliving the trail that has long since gone cold.
And when it is finished, the last line written. Then I shall laugh for sheer joy that it's done!
