What shall I write about?
What shall I write about today? Will I come up with what I want to say? Will the ideas flow? Will the words flow? Unblock me. Unblock me now. It’s the end of another week as I sit down to write this post. My course has ended. I’m left with a spare space. Like a hole in my life that needs to be filled. What shall I do? I don’t want to rush into finding writing jobs. I’m not even sure I know what to write. Write what you know. Write about your passion. Write about what brings you joy. That’s just it. Writing itself is my passion and joy, but I know I’ve got to be more specific. I can’t be vague. Just writing anything won’t cut it.

The first step is always the hardest
I care for children three days a week. I could write about that, but I feel like if I do it will tie me to a career I want to leave one day. I think that if I do I won’t feel like I can move on and do what I truly want to do which is write. Being around children is great. Don’t get me wrong. It has brought me a steady income. It gave me stability and routine at a time in my life when I was in a mess. A relationship had just ended and I had no job. I felt lost and had no direction. Finding this job was a life saver for me. I’m truly grateful for it. I’ve met so many wonderful people. Colleagues, parents and children. I know one day I will have to leave. End this chapter and start the next. Transitioning from one career to another isn’t easy, but I have done it before. There’s a saying that the first step is always the hardest. Once you’ve taken it everything else just falls into place. I haven’t lived for fifty years without knowing this to be true.
It’s my purpose
Life is about changes and transitions. I believe I’ve been born in this time and place for a reason. I have a purpose and I believe that purpose is connected to my writing. Writing in one form or another has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I tried pushing it away, thinking I can’t make a career of it. Do something else, but I’ve always come back to it. I’m drawn to writing like a moth is to a flame. The universe keeps reminding me this is what I’m meant to be doing. This is my purpose. Now what shall I write about?
Love and blessings to all 🙂
