New Year. New Me?

For the past few days I’ve been thinking.

Praying, actually.

For some focus in my writing.

You see. I love to write. I love to create worlds and beings and treasures for people to behold. I love to put on paper what I see in this crazy head. But, one thing is getting in my way.

Priorities.

Or, maybe the lack there of.

So, I’ve been praying, asking and seeking.

How should I write?

When should I write?

How am I going to get all this done?

Are you like me with so many things pulling you in opposite directions you’re like that poor dog Doug in Up!, but instead of one squirrel, you feel like you have a thousand?

That’s me. But, I’ve learned something. To be the best me I can be, I have to prioritize. I have to put things aside that don’t make me me, that don’t bring me joy and that don’t further where I want to see myself to be.

Now, I know there are things we have to do.

We have to wash dishes.

We have to clean house.

And, I don’t know about you, but at my house, laundry is always calling.

But, in all the must do’s, I must find the have to’s. The things that I have to do to make my heart full and my burdens light.

I woke up early today. And, I wrote. And, I will write every day. And, my heart is full.

I wrote for me and not my clients. I wrote for them, too–getting all those gifs designed and New Year’s Best Wishes posted.

I did it. But, I wrote for me, too. And, now I’m writing for you. And, I’m so grateful!

Thank you for being on this journey with me in 2018, and thank you for breaching 2019 with me! Let’s see how far we can go!

Be blessed, joy filled, and God loves you!
