Days 54 & 55 of the 111 Day Writer’s Journey

DAY 54: Under the Weather Related

I managed to write a few paragraphs over the course of the day. My mind was too preoccupied with how under the weather I felt. I went to bed very early, a fitful night followed.

I spent the next day home from work, my body exhausted. Even as I waited in the doctor’s office, I stared at a blank page and couldn’t write a sentence.

And then I realized that my hour-long wait was a perfect fit for a Motivational Monday poem.

DAY 55: Motivational Monday poem

Waiting with arms outstretched 

We hope for someone to find us

To lift us out of misery

To raise our spirits

To heal our wounds

Why wait when we can do it ourselves? 


Family, friendship, 

A community of support 

Link us together 

But when one stumbles

The rest keep moving 

With arms outstretched 

Not to rescue but to inspire.
