If you have been a reader for a while you know that I like quotes and sometimes use them as inspiration for my writing. I stumbled upon the quote Self-help and in reading realized how well it fits me.
How to stop time: kiss. This one shouldn’t need an explanation. Lets just put it bluntly, kissing is a huge turn-on. It can make time stand still or make it spin. It is relaxing, comforting, exhilarating, exciting, enticing, enjoyable. One of the best feel-good things there is. Enjoy!
How to travel in time: read. Reading is a wonderful way to escape from the world. Pick a subject, dive into a book and loose yourself as you travel to another world. By selection of topic you can go anywhere, into the past, into the future, travel in outer space, get lost solving a crime or be entranced by romance. The world is yours and the choice is yours on where in time you travel. Pick a destination and explore.
How to escape time: music. Music has the ability to make you feel good and get the body moving. It is energizing and relaxing, happy, and sad. It can wake you up; it can put you to sleep. It can create elicit memories of the past or help you dream of possibilities for the future. There are no rules. All you have to do is feel…enjoy the beat, sway to the rhythm, let the mind wander, escape reality, let the music flow as you escape in time.
How to feel time: write. I think this one is mis-labeled. I don’t feel time when I write so much as I lose time, or rather loose track of time. Anyone who is a writer, who truly enjoys writing, knows the feeling of becoming absorbed in their writing and not wanting to stop until all those thoughts that are in their brain course down through their arms, into their fingertips and onto paper. Those thoughts must be put down and preserved. If you want to lose time, write.
How to release time: breathe. How true this is, and how very important it is to understand. You release time when you breathe. When you breathe you release stress, refocus, re-energize, maintain balance. You let time fade away and you regain your life. To have a balanced, enjoyable life you have to allow yourself to breath and release time.
The answer to self-help is time. Time to enjoy all the aspects of life. Time to escape all the stress of life. Time to be whatever you want to be. Read something that exhilarates the mind. Kiss with tenderness; kiss with passion. Grab someone and sway to the music. Breathe. Relax. Enjoy. Then put all those memories on paper.
