It’s been a long time since I published something, it’s not because I haven’t written anything (and I’ve written a lot!) It’s just that they’ve been more private and personal thoughts and I’ve been trying to figure out a lot in my own journey.
Over the last 3 years, I feel like I’ve come along way, more than in my twenties and that period was challenging enough! But one thing I’ve come to realize is that no matter how much we resist or try to follow life the way we are ‘told’ we should, there will come a time in your own journey where you will literally be forced to change paths, especially if you’re not being authentic to yourself. At that time it can seem daunting but honesty the worst thing that can happen is never following your dreams or passion, whether that’s to be a writer, painter, musician or even a parent! Just look at someone like J K Rowling, whose book ‘Harry Potter’ was rejected by at least a dozen publishers! Had she given up on her passion, we’d never have read such an iconic book.
Nothing is ever right or wrong; what’s right for one person is someone else’s wrong. That’s what makes us all unique. I’m personally also still learning, one step at a time, but knowing that I get up each day and enjoy what I am doing has made a great difference in my own life.
Try it. You’ve got nothing to lose and everything to gain!
