Have you ever heard that everybody should write a book, plant a tree and have a kid? From this list, I can corroborate that I have given birth to two kids and have planted flowers and shrubs, although I’m not sure if they honestly count as planting a tree. So what is left to do before the end of times? Write a book! This idea has been navigating in my head for quite some time. But more than a book, I have strongly desire to start my own blog. Would this count as writing a book? Maybe not, but it’s a beginning of a special chapter in my life.
I guess I have finally overcome the fear of what would others think of my writing. Believe me, my writing skills were brutally smashed to pieces during my first year of college. I remember spending days researching and typing my very first essay after having graduated with honors from high school, only to get it back with a big ugly red “D” on it. The pain was unbearable back then, but now, is just a memory saved in my brain’s hard drive. Who is going to grade me now? Is it worth it to give it a try? Would my life happenings and stories be able to help others? I don’t really have the answers to my questions yet, but this I know, it will at least suffice the hunger in my soul to type away my thoughts, my stories and my most inner feelings.
They say that is better late than never and I have now taken ownership over this phrase. Today I have not only started my blog, but also have taken the first steps toward revamping my fitness and building a much stronger relationship with my Creator (I went for a walk this morning while having a devotional time). I know, it is the Middle of the year, but in God’s eyes, today is a new day and a new opportunity to enjoy his countless blessings. Enjoy!
Many, LORD my God, are the wonders you have done, the things you planned for us. None can compare with you; were I to speak and tell of your deeds, they would be too many to declare. Psalm 40:5
