Have you ever heard it said… “Years from now you will wish you would have begun the journey today.”
Well TODAY is the day!
I’ve been wanting to start a blog for years but always found a reason that it was just not the right time. If I was honest with myself I would have just admitted that it was FEAR that paralyzed me. I kept hearing that small yet loud VOICE inside me saying…you don’t have time… you won’t be able to keep up with it… you are not techie enough… you are not creative enough… you are not a writer… you don’t have anything relevant to share… no one is going to read what you write… no one cares…
I could go on and on. But TODAY I choose to start on this journey… The simple step of beginning has been a journey in and of itself filled with some very special time with Brave woman from across the nation and I will share more about that at another time. But I was nudged most recently after reading Jo Ann Fore’s book “When a Woman Finds Her Voice”. I came to the realization that it’s not about me! Imagine that! It’s about sharing life together, sharing our stories, growing, learning, encouraging, creating and seeking true beauty together. I’m stepping out in FAITH… and admittedly stepping out in a bit of fear, but stepping out non the less. I am going to TRUST the journey as the Lord guides me along my given path. I am so excited to see where it leads and the friendships I will make along the way. So I welcome you to come along with me on this journey of living a creative life and I ask for grace as I learn something totally new to me while doing so. Blessings & Happy Journey! Anita Haines
