A Thought For Your Sunday
This little internet find (original source here) grabbed me this week and wouldn’t let go.
I have always considered myself a writer.
When I was young, I would sit at my family’s old-school PC hammering away on the keyboard, making up stories (I was no Harper Lee, many of them were inspired by Sweet Valley High, truth be told) and losing myself in the words.
When it came time to decide what to major in at university, I ignored my passion for writing (as so many young adults do) and went into sociology. Two wasted years later, I realized I was missing out on what I really wanted to do and fought my way into the highly coveted journalism program at another university.
I studied writing (though looking back, I didn’t actually DO that much of it outside of school, regretfully) and found myself interning at start up magazines and weekly newspapers for a few years until PR came calling (I was told there would be a lot of writing…there really isn’t) and once again, I ignored my passion and set forth on what has been a great career.
Fast-forward a few more years and I once again realized I was focusing my energy in the wrong places, creatively. So I started this blog.
And finally, I started to write.
It’s not always profound. It’s not always perfect. It’s not a manuscript. It’s rarely edited.
But it’s writing.
And amid the posts about fashion and beauty and home and parenting woes (because I love them, too!) I hope to share even more of it with you here.
Because the first step to becoming a better anything is to do it.
Write it, bake it, design it, create it, dream it, photograph it, build it, share it.
And then do it again tomorrow.
