Our Ability As Writers…

Our ability as writers
is the gift to tell stories
that mean something to people
We use our words
to empathize,
to empower,
to educate
and to entertain
Writers are real people
with real stories and
their words have real emotions
at the center of it
Our words may be
our experience,
or it may not but
it allows somebody the opportunity
to be changed,
the opportunity to have
their minds expanded or
to get educated in a new way
This form of expression
is the most beautiful and powerful
aspect this craft is capable of

Happy New Year

As 2020 winds down, my resolution for the new year is to continue to have “HOPE” despite everything that life throws at me. Hope is a powerful motivator, a life-affirming feeling and a force to be reckon with if properly sent out into the world. Darkness cannot exist without light, so keep that spark of hope alive…have faith that everything will turn out all right. Ignite the eternal optimist within you!

Tis The Season

It’s that time of year where we tend to spread good cheer and give of ourselves to others. Everyone is usually all smiles and in good spirits but 2020 threw a wrench in all our plans. But despite all the chaos that happened, we just need to pause and remember that no matter how bad things get there is light at the end of the tunnel. We just need to have faith and keep hope alive. Hope changes everything! That positive vibe that has a tendency to be prevalent during the holiday season is something we need to carry with us into 2021. The more positivity we can spread, the more hope we can spark in others, the more faith we can sustain will make the rough times bearable. So spread cheer, spread joy this holiday season and keep it going until we can get back to normal.
