The Three P’s

Starting a new month seems to encourage a fresh beginning–or a renewed continuing…

For a writer, I think it’s always important to remember The Three P’s:


So it was delightful when I came across a prayer written by St. Clare of Assisi that echoed these same intentions.

What you hold, may you always hold.
What you do, may you always do and never abandon.
But with swift pace, light step, and unswerving feet,
so that even your steps stir up no dust,
go forward
securely, joyfully, and swiftly,
on the path of prudent happiness,
believing nothing,
agreeing with nothing
which would dissuade you from this resolution
or which would place a stumbling block for you on the way
