In a few days I embark on a new journey, one that will define whether I have the commitment and determination to finish what I am starting. I love to try new things, see new places, or venture in areas I know nothing about.
I have days where I want to venture out and try something new but I hesitate because I can hear voices in my head telling me that I’m not good enough or that people don’t care about what I have to say.
I may not be great at it but I love to write, writing has been a powerful outlet for me over the years and it has also been a great learning tool. Writing everything down to evaluate later on is a great way to help see the patterns that can infiltrate our minds, patterns that can ruin us or propel us forward into new areas of expression and fulfillment.
In a few days I start camp nanowrimo, it is an online camp designed to help new writers achieve their goals of creating new masterpieces while having a bunch of people there to cheer you on, my new book is going to be called Balancing Nature. I want to focus on how we can work with nature instead of manipulating it, and how we can change our relationship with plants, animals, and even the dirt.
This journey will begin and end with hope, not hope for money or status or even recognition, but hope that I can finish what I start, hope that this adventure will bring me closer to being fulfilled, and hope that I can overcome the thoughts that drag me down.
