Embarking On A Journey

Before you embark
on your journey
as a writer…
ask yourself,
Is this what I’m supposed to do?
Is this what I want to do?
Or…
Is this what I was meant to do?
Knowing the context
of your reason
determines your path
of the writer you’ll be
Once you truly understand
the right words
as it pertains to you,
then…
your journey may begin

When Words Don’t Come Easy

When the well runs dry
and words don’t flow freely,
take a step back…
pause…
reflect…
on all your past work,
relish in the creativity
you created from nothing
and take pride
in knowing you did something
that was brought forth from
your heart,
your soul,
your inner voice
What was once there
is never gone
It just needs time to
rest and recharge
When all is said and done,
you’ll be back
to reinvent yourself
with eloquent words
that will convey your passion
to the world.


The Journey

Writing is a journey
It takes your mind
through the stratosphere
and completely changes
your perspective
It carries your
inner voice
from within and propels
it out into the world
for all to see
This path becomes
your way of life
and helps you to become
an artist
who creates magic
with words
and sets your stories
on a course
destined to open
the hearts and minds,
to strengthen and inspire
everyone and anyone
willing to invite you
into their lives
So take the first step,
do what you love
and go on
the journey
of a lifetime.

“I Can”

Don’t wish for things to happen,
make it so
Don’t be afraid of the outcome,
have faith
Don’t sell yourself short,
you are worthy
Cast aside all doubt,
challenge yourself
to be great
In doing so,
you open up your world
to infinite possibilities
where dreams become reality
It all starts with you,
your journey begins
when you simply say,
“I can!”
