I started blogging because I wanted to be a blogger and edupreneur, who helps women by guiding them on the journey of journaling for personal growth: especially self-awareness, self-acceptance and self-love. I believe every women should journal for stress relief and personal change.
Writing has been a dream of mine ever since my 30’s.I have a love-hate relationship with it from childhood on. Although I didn’t start writing seriously until I started to blog 5 years ago, I started journaling in my mid to late 20’s. I kept it up off and on for nearly 30 years.
I love to journal and believe everyone should do it. My mission, through this blog, is to inspire and help women to live a life worth loving. My calling and meaningful work is to be a blogger to help other women. I am driven to write when I am not battling writer’s block. Part of my writer’s block is caused by negative thinking that I do not write well enough.
I love to write short expressive pieces. Writing excites me. I blog because I find it joyful and relaxing. I express my creativity through my writing. Longer writings are difficult for me. I have trouble writing 500 words, forget about 1500 words.
God blessed me with both a love of writing and a writing disability. It has been a challenge, to say the least. I am in the process of honing my writer’s voice. I have had writer’s block for such a long time, but it has now been lifted. Journaling is different for me than blogging and I rarely get blocked, but it does happen to every journaler. I find it helpful to set a timer for 10 minutes then write what everything that comes to my mind.
I’ve been a lifelong student off and on all throughout my adult life. Being a writer is hard while having learning and writing disabilities, but I can’t not write. It is thrilling for me most of the time.
In high school, I was told that I should not go to a community college, but I did it anyway. I did it without any help from the school’s disability services department. I might have graduated late, but I did graduate.
I have a romanticized idea of writing, picturing myself writing at the beach, or at my desk facing a picture window overlooking an herb garden. The actual act of writing is not very romantic at all, but extremely hard work for even the most talented and experienced writer.
Writing is in my blood for both for me and my brother (who is a poet). I am drawn to both blogging and teaching online.
