I have been wanting to write for quite some time now but I didn't really know where to start or what to write about. I finally have gotten to a place and in a mindset in which I feel I have something to say, teach and tell people about my experiences. How did I finally get to this place? Well it took me retelling my sister a story or an incident while visiting her and her saying you should write a book on a couple of those visits. I guess my most recent visit and my purchase of my brand new Mac also are key to my motivation to start writing. When you have two old laptops that are missing keys and the spacebar sticks it really is a hindrance. Part of my fear of writing is all the spelling and grammar mistakes I would make and how embarrassing it would be since I do have a degree in broadcast journalism...I am supposed to be a pro or at least a good writer after going to college for this right? but I guess that is why there are editors if I do ever write a real book. You will have to bear with me if I have run on sentences, spelling errors or grammar mistakes. I like to talk...I'm a big talker it's what I am good at :-) hence the broadcast part of my degree ;-) And due to me being a big talker I tend to go off on tangents so try to keep up!!!
I welcome you to join me on my journey of learning, laughing, experiencing, inspiring, creating, teaching and reflecting. I hope you ENJOY
Now I thought about starting at the beginning but that would just require too much thought and at the moment all my mind can think about is the yummy dinner my roommate Katie just made. It is one of my childhood favorites, Chicken Divan and Mashed potatoes YUM! Excuse me while I go stuff my face and I will get back to writing later. In the meantime you all can enjoy this article I wrote that gives you some insight into the beginning of my life. http://www.ucc.org/ucnews/octnov2006/my-story-provides-hope-for.html
Oh and the biggest reason I am writing this is becuase I realized today while talking to Katie as she was making dinner how much I had on my mind but how I need to focus on one thing at a time. I tend to get overwhelmed with a million little things that need to get done and I forget the biggest things I want to concentrate on in order to be ultimetly happy. So I decided to not worry and do what makes me happy at this very moment carpe diem :-)
