I've been gone for far too long!!!
WOW!! As I sit here and type, I can't believe I've gone almost two years without writing in my blog. Talk about taking a break!! And with knowing that writing is one of my passions and a great creative outlet for me, I still made the choice to go that long without writing. Why? Maybe it was procrastination. Maybe it was laziness. Maybe it was part of the path I was supposed to travel to get me to this point. I honestly don't know. Kinda sad, really if I sit here and think about it long enough. And even though I made the choice not to write in my blog for almost two years, the desire always stayed with me. But, I let my choices win out over my desires. I let my ego win out over my heart. For my two year break, I was leading with my head and not with my heart. I allowed life to take over instead of me taking over my life. I made going to work and paying bills a priority. I made making others happy a priority. I made doing laundry, washing dishes, grocery shopping, getting oil changes, watching movies, and running errands a priority. While all of those things are important, I forgot about my passion and desire to write. I put nourishing my soul on the back-burner. And, I was merely existing and not living! That's definitely no way to live. Knowing this deep inside of me, a thought keeps playing over and over in my head. The thought is, "When it's my time to transition to the other side, I don't wanna be on my death-bed, laying there with any regrets. I want to know that I did all that I wanted to do. I want to know that I followed my heart. I want to know that I pursued my passions. And I want to know that I did all I could do to impact the world by inspiring people." That's what I want, and that's what I WILL DO! And now that I'm 41, almost 42 years old, I feel like I haven't got one second longer to waste. God gave me the gift of writing to give to the world and I must share it. That's what I believe!! So, with that being said, I'm gonna go sit outside on this amazingly beautiful day, watch my doggies play, listen to the birds and the sounds of the universe, and do some more writing. Maybe do some journaling. Maybe some free-flow writing. Or, maybe starting out on writing the book that's been sitting inside of my belly. And, until next time..... FOLLOW YOUR PASSIONS!!
