Interesting writing prompt today as bloganuary nears it’s closing days. I can’t believe I’ve stuck with it and posted each day so far. Actually, I’m on a 28-day streak the reminder says. I hope to put that number in the hundreds this year if time and health allow it.

So the task is to write about something that makes you feel strong. Well, the first thing that popped to mind was my better half and children. They make me feel strong. But there is one other thing. The Sun makes me feel really strong. A special kind of strong. I love going out early and catching sunrises and of course sunsets.

I draw strength from the time the sun is up till it sets. Especially in the milder and warmer months of the year. It both recharges my body and mind. Even when I get up mid-day after working nights I’ll step out to the front porch or deck and stretch out in the sun when it’s nice.

It gives both incentive and courage. The incentive part is getting to see it another day. The courage part is that it helps me face whatever is there to get to the next day. So thanks sun.

Sorry about the short post, a busy day but a good one. I hope the same was true for you.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
