Focusing on Life - Week 38
A moment of calm, peacefulness and self-reflection.
Quiet little moments through the day where you
pause, listen to your heart and breath.
This week capture a quiet moment.
In my quiet moments, I like to write. Sitting down with paper and pen, capturing my thoughts and ideas, is very relaxing and cleansing.
When I was in high school, I aspired to be an author/journalist. But love and life and the need to earn an income pushed that dream to the background.
I ended up married at 18, pregnant and living 950 miles away from home. Two children and three years later found me back living with my parents as a single mother.
I had no time to write or even think about writing. With two young children to care for and feed, I had other priorities. I would never have survived without the support, both moral and financial, of my parents. For that, I'm very grateful.
The years passed, people came and went from my life and my body began to fail me, but the desire to write still resided in the back of my mind.
Then, I discovered the web blog world in 2009. It opened up a new avenue for me to explore and utilize. And now, it provides me with the outlet to express myself creatively in words. It augments both my small business and my personal contentment at the same time.
One day I hope to write a novel or two. I have a ton of material and ideas in my head that life experiences have provided me. Never mind the drama on TV soap operas, I've got them beat!
