Why Wait?

Why wait for 2018? Do it Now.

Recently I listened to a video snippet, and the author told me, why wait until 2018 to make the changes you’d like to make?

And shorty, is right! Why am I going to wait until 2018 to start fresh, when everyday I wake up translates to a new beginning? With the rise of the sun, I am able to decide who I want to be and who I want in my World. Everyone’s manual for living looks different, so I have to find the instructions that work best for me. Find the people who work best, with my vibe, who brings out the best in me. Letting go is extremely hard for me, especially since my mother died. I hold on to folks tight, I look past their wrongdoings at my own detriment and I allow them to stay in my World. I find them sucking the life from me, and once I’ve hit rock bottom only then do I let them go.

This situation, this friendship, this love is NO longer serving me. Its no Longer allowing me to grow, no longer allowing me to be the best version of myself, no longer making me happy. I wish you the best, take care, thank you. I’ve found that speaking this outloud makes the transition easier. Can people change, sure they can, but for my own peace, they have to change elsewhere. Protecting my own energy is my top priority, everyone can and will be second my own self. Eff how they feel.

I’ve had a few light stealers, and I’ve let each and everyone of them go. God Bless ‘Em

Only When.

I know there’s a saying that if you only worked on days where you felt like it, you wouldn’t be working much, and while that might be true, I think I owe it to myself to be genuine. Sometimes I don’t feel like writing, and I make myself write something, anything. When in reality I should listen to my inner being, and not write. I hate writing some bullshit filler just to say I wrote something. Nah, I’m done with that. I can say that everything that I’ve been posting lately has all been genuine, I’m proud of myself. Trust me, I know folks can read when you just doing to do. I want my craft to be respected, because when pen hits paper I want you to feel every fukking word!

Writing has saved my sanity. Writing saves me. It gives me clarity, especially during those times when I don’t know my left from my right. When I’m doubtful in who I am, I write. When I’m feeling neglected, I write. I fall into these mini depression spells, when I start to thinking too much about the future or the past, I have to remember that writing saves me. I don’t always upload everything I write, because at times, Its just jibberish, its just me putting pen to paper. But for my inner being, when that pen hits paper, its as if my mind is being massaged, all the kinks being smoothed out, and I can finally relax.

Thank you,

Goals

So for this month, I told myself I would be doing something different with my writing, instead of only writing when something happens, I promised myself I would write every single day for this month. I’ve been told that it takes 21 days to create or break a habit, so consider this my experiment. I wanted to keep it light, so I didn’t place any specifics on what I could write about, the only requirement; I have to write, and publish whatever I wrote.

Seems simple enough as a challenge, right? Well let the writing begin.

FYI I am a tad bit late in writing this as work spilled over, I arrived home at 2:32am, and began writing this as soon as my laptop was ready.

Shrt & Swt

 

On the suggestion of a friend, I am going to attempt to write a short story. I am going to be way out of my comfort zone here but I will get this done. Tonight I wrote a page, and I really would like to stay up longer, but I am dirt tired. So I will pick up where I left off in the morning.

I will give you a peek into my writing world, when I write, I am only dotting down the movie that is playing in my head. My characters are living out their lives as if they are not only figments of my imagination. My characters name is Rachel and Andrew/Drew, however until the book is finished EVERYTHING is subject to change.
