I keep telling myself that I won’t let life interfere with my work, but every time I settle into that mindset–life pulls the metaphorical rug out from under me, and I topple over.
Suddenly, life is right back in the front seat, interfering with my work. All I can do is let it, because that’s life…right? It demands to have your attention, even when you’ve got a pile of books to write and a to-do list a mile long. Life doesn’t care, and circumstances and situations will keep happening regardless of whether or not you have the time or means to deal with them.
Recently, I was reminded about the fragility and the uncertainty of life. You’re not promised tomorrow, hell…you’re not even really promised today. You’ve got to tell the people you care about that you love them often, because you never known when the opportunity to do so will cease to exist. Nobody wants to think that way, of course, but that’s the reality of life. It’s fleeting.
