“And suddenly you know: It’s time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings.”
A year ago today I began my blog.
I’ve enjoyed this adventure into the writing world–is it really possible a whole year has passed?
My desire to write has always whispered to me through the background noise of my inner critics. I ignored it for years–those negative comments were too strong. One day I simply knew I had to take the chance–there was nothing else to do but put the pencil to paper and get the words out there.
I made a commitment to myself to make it work. It was important to me to honor my soul’s never-ending request.
It was time.
Over this past year, I believe I’ve grown as a writer, gaining courage and confidence all along the way. I have not done it alone, though. I’ve been blessed with people who read my thoughts and encourage me to write and share more. I have to tell you–I wait in the wings for your comments to post–I read every word. Thank you all for cushioning the rough spots I’ve encountered along the way.
This year of reading, learning, and sharing, has changed me. It’s subtle but inwardly powerful. For the first time in my life I feel as though I’m in my own niche–my entire being is more at peace. My very personal pilgrimage has begun at last.
I’m not sure where my storytelling will go from here. The exact route is not important. What is important is I continue on this path–my path–and keep moving forward.
Thank you all for wandering with me.
“Courage doesn’t happen when you have all the answers. It happens when you are ready to face the questions you have been avoiding your whole life.”
God bless you all.
