Writer, help thyself!

Sometimes I inadvertently help myself.  Usually I write these blog posts based on how I feel at the time.  I type what’s on my mind at that moment.  Sometimes those words come back to me.  This is one of those times.  The last three posts have all come together today to encourage me.  So weird how that works.

Three weeks ago, I wrote about how the end of a big project was bittersweet for me.  Then I wrote about how attitude makes a difference.  Last week I wrote about how I learned from my dog to just trust that God knows where we’re going.  So, yesterday when I got the news that a regular section I’ve been writing is ceasing to exist after this week, I had my own advice to fall back on!

I have enjoyed writing this particular section.  The articles have been fun.  The steady income has been nice.  But, I was starting to feel a bit like it was time to move on.  Now I know for sure that it is.  When I got the news, my initial reaction wasn’t sadness.  Instead I thought, “OK, God.  Where are we going now?”  That is progress!

I feel like I’m standing at the precipice of something big.  I don’t know what it is.  I don’t know where we’re going, but I’m going to continue doing what I love — researching, writing and editing — and see where it takes me.
