Back in the day when I used to watch tv I viewed an episode of Oprah where she was discussing the book, "The Secret." Anyone watch that? I don't remember much, but I do remember people sharing their success stories of how their lives drastically changed after reading the book. One said, "I spoke my dreams to the universe and that helped them become a reality." Do ya'll believe that? I don't think "the universe" made those things happen, but maybe speaking our dreams aloud will help us believe they really can happen and therefore ignite in us the gumption to make them a reality.
So here goes:
I am going to write a book and have it published. (I don't know what the book is about, but I have a few ideas. I also don't know who will publish it. Small details.)
I am going to use my love for writing to help others develop their own craft. (outside of a school setting)
I'm at a strange place right now. Not strange as in bad, just strange as in I feel change around the bend but I can't see it yet. I am praying for God to open a window to some unknown opportunity regarding my career. I would like to be more accessible to my girls now that I have three. It's like three is the magic number in my head and I can't imagine my life and routine returning to what it was. Not out of fear. I'm not afraid this time. I was dreadfully afraid of managing life when we transitioned from one to two girls. No, I'm not afraid with three. I'm open.
So I have a few ideas. For those of you that read my blog, thank you. It makes me feel special each time a new "follower" pops up on the sidebar. However, I want to know who you all are. If I don't know you personally already please send me an email to introduce yourself. Where do you live and how did you stumble upon this blog? I don't have FB so we have to get acquainted the old fashioned way - email. Ha!
Several friends have mentioned "writing" to me in passing. If any of you would like to form a writers group please let me know. Also, I would like to host a writers workshop if anyone is interested. I'm considering a workshop for teenage girls at my house this summer. We would focus on self confidence and writing and how the two can be intertwined. The cost would be $100 per girl, 9-11am for a week. If you have an interest please contact me.
I'm eager to see what is around the bend. The ride may be bumpy. Fortunately, I am not in control. Adventure is out there!
