a [re]new beginning
Updated: Apr 11, 2021
"I have longed to be a writer for as long as I can remember. And I have let no one stop me but myself. I recently read a quote by Nora Ephron that says, "You don't find the time to write, you make the time." So here I am, at 20 minutes before midnight on Friday, December 25, 2009.... making the time......"
That was the beginning of my first ever blog written more than a decade ago. Let's just say I let myself get in the way again a few months after that... but no more!
There are many things about my life that turned out differently than the picture-perfect plan to be a writer I had imagined for myself at the age of eight. Life's varying pathways had curves, potholes, and steep climbs but here I am... almost *cough*-years-old now... and time is fleeting. So there is no better time than the present to begin sharing the various life experiences and life lessons that are transforming me into the woman I see looking back from the mirror each morning.
And I say transforming because I am not done yet. Every day brings forth new life lessons, new depths of emotions, and sometimes more questions than answers.
While I don't know where this blog will lead me, I am looking forward to reaching new depths of fulfillment as I once again pour myself into blogging.
By the way... my first ever book is being published in a month and I cannot wait to share it with you!
Well, will you look at that... a published author. Looks like I'm checking off a box on that picture-perfect plan after all. Thank you, eight-year-old me. Better late than never.
