Clinging to something we both love and hate.
Why don't we toss that ring?
First, we get some enjoyment or comfort from that negative thing. Second, we're afraid to be without it. Maybe this negative in our lives gives us a reason to avoid trying because we fear failure. It gives us an excuse not to try. An excuse such as we are too busy dealing with the negative to have time to accomplish those far off dreams.
What could this ring be?
To find out you have to ask yourself what is keeping you from your goals? It could be various distractions or maybe even an addiction that takes up all your time. It could be a person you are around that is negative. Not necessarily intentionally negative. They could be well meaning, but take up all your time. Another "ring" could be your own fear, knowing you have to do something, but fear holds you back because it takes you out of your comfort zone.
Anyway, I hope to some day be able to insert a theme as clever as this one in my own writing.
Just a side note about the A to Z blog fest:
I wanted to do it, but I’m completely unprepared due to circumstances at home. The decision came down to one question.
What will you be more proud of? Doing the A to Z blog fest or finishing the Vallar sequel. The answer was easy, but I am sorry I can’t participate. I will be visiting my usual blogs and maybe some extra ones.
Have fun everyone!
