I completely know that I have been missing in action for a while, and while my snickerdoodle cookies are just coming hot out of the oven and I am getting comfortable in my cozies while watching the red carpet for the Golden Globes, I decided I owe all you of you who read my little blog, a post.
Life has a funny way of testing us. Sometimes it’s in lovely moments that awake our soul with brilliance, but more often than not, life tests us with the hard times. It breaks us down, causes us pain and worry, and reveals so rawfully who is there for us along the way. And while things like heartache, sickness, arguments, failures with work or school, death of a loved one make us question what is fair in life, I have found it true, that it makes us stronger. That the trifling times only bring better ones ahead. One of my favorite quotes from Winston Churchill- “If you’re going through hell, keep going.”
So here I am, keeping on. One of the things I am reminded of from the people who love me most is that I cannot forget my passion, whether it is to share my words or write them for myself, it can be a tremendous release of emotion. I have recently signed up for a writing class from the very talented Tyler Knott Gregson- if you have not heard of him, he is a poet whose work I have been following for some time now. You can find his work here-> http://tylerknott.com. His course is a $45 dollar- 30 day- writing course with writing prompts, exercises, tips, tricks, Q&A sessions, training, self-publishing, etc. The course starts on January 29th and I am so very excited to challenge myself to write every one of those 30 days. You can still sign up for the course here-> http://www.writeyourselfalive.org/sp/34452-write-yourself-alive
With that, I will leave you with a Sunday Series Poem and thank you for those who still check back to read my words. I promise to talk to you soon!
