Here I am! Here I am!
Haven’t we all had that moment when we need desperately for someone to know that we have arrived? That we’re on the scene and ready to shine?
This is just such a week for me…
I’ve been absent from writing for my blog since late September; although there are a multitude of reasons, taken individually, there are none that should have kept me away for so long. But, when combined into one long string of events, it seems like hiding away for a few months was the best and only course of action. And so, that is what I have done.
All of the mental wrestling I’ve been doing in my personal life, has left me rather void of creativity; my disposition is such that I must be able to clearly see the path forward in order to be creative and put pen to paper. That’s just me. I think that has a lot to do with the fact I’m a born (and died in the wool) Gemini. The Twins: The flighty, fickle, constantly moving air beings of the universe. The Ying and Yang in one embodiment. Always moving from one exciting adventure to the next. In love with conversation and new acquaintances!
Until, all at once, you’re not. Until, all at once, the adventure seems overwhelming and not quite what you bargained for. Then, the flighty twin seeks to withdraw a bit and hibernate until clarity about the path forward has returned.
And finally, after months of seemingly aimless mental wandering, I’ve cleared the fog and can see clearly the path that I want to follow. What was the song…. “I can see clearly now, the rain is gone…” That’s it, that’s the mental place for me today.
Today, I feel as though I need to shout, “Here I am! Here I am! Everyone, stop and take notice of me!”
I’m in the sun, I can see the way, and I’m back and ready to continue sharing my world of writing with you once again!
Until then, happy reading!
P.S. Next week, we’re going to talk about some of the plans I have for the next few weeks, months, and years – it’s going to be a really exciting time!
