Writing Prompt: Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt- Object


Last Sunday after my Weight Watchers meeting, I  walked to Wal-Mart to pick up a few things that I 20160310_173344needed for the week, I also picked up a birthday card for my step father who’s birthday was on Sunday To be honest I was feeling blah, my weight loss is not going as expected, I had a lot of things that I needed to do (complete a grant) and really didn’t have the energy or the brain capacity to do it, and on top of that I had to spend time with people I don’t particularly like..

So I’m looking at all the greetings cards, and I trying to figure out which one I like, and which one conveys what I’m trying to say,.. while trying to remember what card I got him last year. and finally I see it, I see the card that I want to get. and as I;m looking at the card I see the card right above it. I quickly put the first birthday card in my basket and pick up the one that catches my eye,

It’s a quote from Winnie The Pooh, I read the quote and I smile, it’s funny it was exactly what I needed to see. I needed to reminded of those things. I seriously looked at the card for about five minutes before I decided to pick it up in my basket, and as if on auto pilot, I went and found the aisle with the frames, and stuck that in my basket as well…

So what used to be a birthday card, is now sitting in a frame above my mirror so I can see it everyday to remind me that I’m stronger than I think. Who would have thought a little object which was made for one intention, found it’s way into my home to become a little daily inspiration.


Until Next Time,
