Talk to any writer and they’ll tell you of the overwhelming feeling of anxiety that comes when staring at a blank page. Be it stagnation from a temporary block or not being able to get it all out fast enough, the experience can be quite daunting.
Take a look at a sheet of paper. Notice how the lines create a boxing-in effect, the page itself is a box. This box represents our lives and the lines are the days of our lives. The top of the page indicates the beginning of our lives where nothing is written but our names. We learn to respond to being called by this label. As we go down the page it would start to be filled with what we were told that life is all about. The middle part of the page would represent us beginning to understand what we’ve been told and the process of acting accordingly. The bottom of the page would represent how we began to live our lives according to what we’ve learned and now understand.
Today I’d like to propose something to you that would change your life as you now know it… turn the page over! That’s right. Turn over the page and this time you get to name yourself! This time you get to write your own path. Who do you want to be? Where would you like to go? You are now in control, all you have to do is write it down and act on it! Once you’ve filled that page…go to the next one and keep writing until the book of your life is done. I promise, it really is that simple.
So, let there be a great sound in the air from the sound of pens scratching the paper and boots hitting the ground… let’s go!
