The past few years have been a whirl wind of chaos, anxiety, and excitement all wrapped up into one huge ball of emotions. While dealing with personal demons, college courses and exams, home life, and writing manuscripts, I've learned more of my inner strength and what I do and do not want or need within my life.
I honestly can say that as I get older, the more simplified I love my life. I don't want or need any drama and I don't need all the extra 'fluff' from the non essentials; such as things that don't make me happy or bring me fulfillment.
With that being said, I try not to worry about things beyond my control as well. As I recently obtained a Bachelor of Science in Education, doubts enter my mind pertaining to the job market for teachers within my state. With so many teachers getting 'pink slips', there tends to bring a sense of concern regarding the lack of teaching positions available.
I also fight the insecurities of writing the stories I love and achieving my goal of being a published author. However, these frustrating bouts of doubt cannot hold a place within my daily life. It's fruitless and waste of time. It's true that I can't control what publishing agent or editor will love my stories but I can control how I deal with it and push forward towards my dream.
Well, there you have it. Yep, it's crazy right now for me but hey that's definitely the pot calling the kettle black there. Anyway, I may not know what's around the bend in the road but I believe without a shadow of doubt that pushing on makes the curve in the road not seem so danger and unyielding at times.
Have a great day everyone and God bless.
