I slice because Michelle talked me into it. She is someone you cannot say no to. She knows what is good for you and she wants you to try. Just try. Then you get hooked and you tell her she was right and she just smiles. I'm honored that I've been mentored by this smart cookie for 12 years.
I slice because writing calms me down. I'm an anxious, disorganized, talkative, out-of-the box thinker. When I need to work out a problem or make a decision, my mind starts to spin. I have to talk to anyone who will listen. The decision can be tiny (should I get these shoes?) or humongous (should I change my job?) and I feel better after talking it out with friends and family. The Slice of Life challenge gives me a community to share my thinking as well as read what others are working through, professionally and personally. This community promotes gratitude, compassion and empathy. We are all here for each other even though many of us have not met in person.
Thank you to Stacey and all the hosts and slicers for all you do. March is a time of crazy weather, testing and cabin fever. Why not write?
