Tasks occupy me. Important and worthy tasks. But these tasks keep me right now from my heart’s calling- to write and to read.
This deferral though is a good thing because when I return, I’ll come with an even clearer and deeper appreciation for the rightness of the work that I have put aside.
This, I believe, is true of all things. No real joy without pain. No real wisdom without wandering. So pain and wandering and distance from the people and the things we love- these are all good and necessary pieces of our life.
