I have been reading Lysa Terkeurst book -It’s not supposed to be this way and it is really speaking to me.
Don’t you love it when you pick up a book to read and you realise this is where I am at the moment. This is what I am thinking about.
It is like the author is right there speaking to me.
I am encouraged and inspired by others who can write about their difficult journey or experience.
I am encouraged by their vulnerability and their honesty.
For I long time I have wanted to write about my journey, I wanted to write about recovery and that it is possible. I wanted to write to let others know that there is hope and that you have a future.
I love encouraging others and I want to make a difference.
The book is a work in progress and I really wasn’t sure how I wanted to structure the book. Then a few years ago I started writing devotionals for a publication in America. I had never written a devotional before, I submitted it and it was published. What!
I few years ago I went on a writing retreat and was focusing on how I was going to write my book. I didn’t want there to be triggers for the reader, that was my biggest concern. The amazing person running the retreat met with everyone individually to mentor us. While we where discussing the book, I thought that maybe I could write a devotional about my journey. Yes, a light bulb moment had happened.
As I write this, the focus for 2019 is to get back into my writing.
I am going to look at submitting for publications.
The focus will also be about finishing the devotional book and working on a journal.
Yes, I can do this.
Yes, this is the year.
What are you going to finish this year?
Will share more soon.
