Thanks for joining me!
Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton
I used to be good at this. Well, I thought I was. All I wanted when I was younger was to write. It didn’t matter what it was so long as my name was listed as the author. I went from short stories to articles, then jumped to screenplays and novels. Blogging, when it came about, was the obvious next step and I’ve had many over the years. None of them have ever made it very far, not even so much as a year.
This is a common theme in my life. I start something with all of the enthusiasm and passion I’ve got and then the self doubt and fear seeps in. Once it takes hold I begin to second guess my choices and start removing things, quitting. What I find myself wondering is why I think this time is different, what makes this attempt unique? Honestly, me.
No longer am I a 20 something woman full of self doubts and self loathing. No longer do I look at myself with disgust or disappointment. Is it perfect every moment of every day? Heck no! I struggle with self image and finding confidence in the things that I do that the way I live my life.
My writing isn’t perfect, it won’t be. That doesn’t render my writing useless, my voice silent.
This is my new home. The place in which I am choosing to live my life, out loud. I will not only live, I will flourish.
