I'm Back

I haven’t been away from my blog this long since I sincerely started writing in it. There’s so much to write about, but I don’t want to overwhelm anyone, much less myself!  So, starting slowly…
I recently posted a version of this on another site and thought it would do here. Talking about part of what it means to be a writer, to try and share something in a way that makes folks want to read more, the doubts, the hard days…  Sometimes inspiration or just downright self-motivation is difficult to find. I use my blog to help get jump started sometimes. Twitter is also a good way to ease back in for me when I'm unmotivated to move. Posting on my blog, twitter, linked in, wherever, helps get me out of my head. Sometimes making sure I have time to write every day is a challenge. For some reason it scares me to sit and put the words down...I think it has to do with belief in myself and my abilities, my lack of this at times. Writing is not an easy task, but on the other side, it sure feels amazing at the end of a good 'writing' day...

It may sound like an unattainable dream, but one thing that helps me motivate when I don't feel strong, is to remember Geoffrey, and how he has stuck to his career to give us a very good life. I would LOVE to someday be able to offer the same to him. To give him the choice of whether or not he wants to work outside the home. Whenever I'm feeling sorry for myself or unsure of what I'm doing, I think of him and how he supports me in all ways. How can I do less? This is a key for me, to think outside of myself. Because I feel that when I don't at least try to live up to more than I think I can be, that is being selfish. It works for me to think of others and what I can share with them.  So, I’ll keep writing and dreaming and see where I go…
