Good morning, all. I hope the weekend was kind to you. Mine was full of work and planning for the future.
Today, I have decided to take a “see it into existence” approach to my dreams as a writer. My dream, as long as I can remember, has been to write poetry sitting under the Eiffel Tower. I can’t honestly tell you why, Paris just personifies poetic muse for me.
Through a great session with my coach the other day, I have started a list of decisions I need to make in order to realize my goals. Adding this to my 30-day challenge has given me a lot to think about. I have realized there are a few things that need to change. There are some people who will continue this journey with me, and others who will, unfortunately not be around to see my dreams come true.
Thus is the way of life, though. Even though these changes make us sad, they are a must if we are to achieve our true potential. I have had to say goodbye to many people throughout my life and it is always with a heavy heart. But toxic people have no place in my future.
Today, I am thinking about things differently. I posted last time that I had realized that it is okay to be who I am. Well, this has progressed even further. I not only see that it is okay for me to do what I love to do, I realize that this is the only way for me to truly be happy. So, I have decided that I will settle for nothing less.
I am a writer. I have always been a writer. It is the one thing that has been constant in my life and when I am spilling words onto a page, that is the only time I am truly myself. I know, it sounds weird, the only time I feel like myself is writing worlds into existence that are not real. But hey, it’s okay. Because that is who I am.
I have also decided to put my faith in God and let him guide my next move. I trust that what I am doing is what I was meant to do. If not, it wouldn’t be the one thing in my life that has never changed.
So, now it is time for me to do some self-reflection and make the hard decisions as I continue my writing journey.
As always, inspire to be inspired and never give up on yourself. No one else’s opinion of you is half as important as your own. Let your true self shine.
