I am not sure about y’all, but I am beyond thankful for the weekend. Last week was a little stressful for me due to having to make the drive to my follow-up doctor’s appointment on one of the most terrible roads I have ever driven on, but also because of my back and forth with myself regarding the writing competition. I know without asking anyone what the biggest issue for me was about this, and it was my complete lack of self-confidence. I was so worried that the judges would think the article was not good enough to enter any writing competition, but also because I am planning on sharing this article with the young lady I wrote about. I am not sure if I was more worried about what the judges would think or the person that I wrote about.
What I can say is, I put a lot of thought, soul, and heart into this article. I decided, win, or lose, it would be worth it because I did enjoy the research I did, and putting the article together was also exciting. After causing myself too much stress, and worrying too much about it, I finally submitted the article to the competition last night. I know how my mind works, and if I decided against this competition, I would have always wondered what would have happened and regretted not participating in the competition. I did not do this article or decide on the topic that I would do to become a famous writer, but I did want to try to do something with my writing.
Since I was a young child, I always enjoyed writing and even wanted to be a journalist. Of course, life did have other plans for me, and I must accept life for what it is. I could spend the rest of my life with regrets, that I did not pursue my dreams of being a journalist, but what would that do for me? Nothing! For the time being, I am thankful for the opportunity to write what I want to write on my blog. Maybe, and that is a BIG maybe, I will write the book that I have dreamed of writing. Until and if that day comes, I am going to continue to enjoy my blog and participate in writing competitions when they are available. Life is short, and dreams can come true, but dreams can also change.
Thank you for visiting my site today and continuing to support my writing. I meant to do this post earlier in the day, but I was too exhausted, and needed to rest, and not think too much. I hope you are enjoying your weekend, and doing something that brings you the most joy. We work hard all week, and even if you love your job, it is important to have some downtime away from work and all we must do. I am looking forward to reading your comments, and I will respond as quickly as I can. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!
