I am looking over all of the writing material I have and I am overjoyed. I am happy I am creating my own rules because it is creating such a comfortable space for me.
I am getting further and further away from the worry of how terrible others may think I am at this.
Yes. To build an audience people have to like what I write, but right now that is not what this is about. I don’t really have an audience so I am catering to what is inside of me that I need to get out. I have said this before and I will say it again. Audience or no audience-I am going to write.
I have notes and thoughts on a host of projects and I am so excited about them. I am keeping up this Blog Journal along with Journaling about my husband’s incarceration. I hope to combine my Journal with what he is writing during this time and putting our story out in its entirety.
I will never call myself a single mother. ‘Big Up’ to all the single mothers out there, but that is not what I am. Our family dynamic has simply been shifted for the time being. My husband is just away for awhile.
Along with my writing I am rediscovering my love for being a wife and mother. Maybe that’s what this is all about. This writing is opening me up to who I am as a woman and I am loving it. A lot.
During this time period of rediscovery my love for cooking and feeding people has reemerged. It has sparked a little business idea that I’m playing around with so stay tuned.
Some would probably say I am all over the place, but I think I am finally stepping into who I am. Who I am supposed to be as a woman.
I was asked this week to join a pod of writers/bloggers. I am not exactly sure what to expect, but I am so honored someone saw the content on my Instagram page and thought I was a great fit for what she is trying to build. Thanks so much to author Val Day-Sanchez.
It is basically a support group to build our followings. I hope to learn a great deal from these experienced writers, and am grateful I was chosen to be a part of this group.
Maybe I’m taking on too much with writing, business ideas, and supporting other bloggers, but it just feels so right.
With everything happening I could lean on every excuse that could hold me back and be stagnant, but I only feel led to propel forward.
I have a clear understanding that issues will always arise. That is life and that will never change. What will need to change is how I adapt to each issue as they will all be different.
Regardless of the circumstance. Not writing is no longer an option. I have to make it happen.
