So, I had an hour before I had to leave. Back in the day, I would’ve spent it watching TV or surfing dirty pictures.
Today, I have a much better use for it. I write.
I can give you two ways to picture this. First, if you’re an “audio” person, the pronunciation (and thereby, meaning) of this Daily Prompt: Recreate
Second, what my friend Sal calls “Replacement Therapy,” an idea for overcoming addictions and bad habits by doing something else – something better – with all that time.
The difference should be as clear as the two images in this post: plain old, hard, dead dirt (like what I used to fill my browser with), and fertile soil hosting new life.
I really like that imagery. My new life has sprung and grown out of all the useless stuff that filled my spare time.
What comparisons do you make in describing how you live now?
