A smile on my face. And for now, that is enough. I do ask for your prayers though.
Almost three years ago, I made several BIG changes in my life. The one thing that remained consistent among the ongoing changes was, I wrote. I privately wrote for years. For me, writing has been a form of therapy, expression and at times an obsession. I couldn’t imagine my life without it.
In between the writing jags, as I’d go back and read my writing, I could see the progress. Practice, practice, practice. Not only was it making me a better writer but a better person. My spelling challenge, though, has remained the same. Shucks. I never, once as a child or adult said, I want to be a writer. It just happened. Hmm… maybe there is a lesson in this.
I started this blog two months ago honestly with no clue what would unfold and… I’ve been loving it. I don’t do it for the stars or comments although I am truly touched by each one. I write because I don’t know what else to do. I write because I love it. I write because it helps me and if it helps just one other person, then, that is enough. Often, I do hope that my writing will comfort or inspire another in their own journey and I do try to seize teachable moments in my choice of words.
But today, in a very humble way, I am saying I wish to be an author. I’m putting in the mail to a publishing group a section of a manuscript that I hold close to my heart. Out of nowhere a few days ago, a surge of energy came to me to get a certain section right and I’ve done the best that I can.
I believe in the pages I’ve placed in the envelope. I also believe the message/story/my words could help others. So I found the brightest envelope I could and placed love stamps on it. I even tried to make the three stamps look heart shape. I probably overthought each step but I believe it’s about energy and I wanted this envelope to carry a high vibration.
I have to have faith. I do. I have no worry, fear or doubt. The right thing will happen. It always does. At first, I thought this moment has been three years in the making but maybe it has been decades. Have you ever had a moment where all of your life rolled into that moment? Really, this is just a moment but it feels big to me and I’m savoring it. While I’ve filled this envelope with my energy, I also let go. I ask that the angels escort and that it get into the right hands.
Now, I think I will go take a nap!
