When Emotions Pour From Our Finger Tips

Writing

Writing. It is not always easy. There are times we try to stop our life from pouring from our finger tips to the keys, but we usually are not successful. If we could only write, without exposing our feelings this writing journey would be easier. If we could pour our feelings into our writing and not feel them, it would make our life so much easier too!

Yet, this is not the case for writers is it? Not long ago I published my first book. What was the toughest part of the publishing? In many places in the book I exposed my heart. I exposed my pain. I exposed my struggles. I exposed my tears, my sadness and my joy. I hung it all out for all to see.

When we write this way, there are times it brings a backlash from people around us. Did you need to share that? Isn’t that a bit much? Why are you so transparent? Then the opposing side; Why didn’t you share more? Where is the rest of the story? Why are you not more transparent?

The life of a writer. People read our words and they cause reactions that we have no control over. For that is what a writer does. We cause emotions to surface, the good, the bad, the ugly, the beautiful and the joyful. We are hated. We are loved. We are ignored and we are lavished with attention.

If we are not careful this life can easily become a life that spins us in circles. Yet, if we keep writing, and pour out our heart, whether people love us or hate us, people are reading what we write.

2015 A Year Of Travel And New Things!

Each year instead of a New Years Resolution the Lord gives me a word for the year. Yes, if you are wondering what that means when I say the Lord gives me a word, I am a christian. I am a Christ following. I believe every word in the word of God, the bible. I believe every word is true and inspired by God!

My word for 2014 was beauty. This word assisted me to see beauty in tough times. For 2015 my word arrived early. My word for 2015 is thankful. A year of thankfulness is on its way. In fact it is beginning now! It is also a year of publishing 3 books and travel! Beauty and thankfulness!

A word for my blog followers and readers; Never give up! If you do you may miss what is waiting for you just around the corner.
