Today is the first Friday in March and I am declaring the Funky February Funk a thing of the past.

I referred to myself as a writer today.

Out loud.

In public.

Who am I?!?

It came out of my mouth before I could stop myself. So I guess I better get to writing because l am a terrible liar and I’ll be darned if I’ll be the one to make a liar of myself.

I need the habit back. Good, bad or silly. I want to write.

Not just here, either.

Here, there and everywhere!

I have taken some positive, albeit minuscule, steps towards this, but I need to up my game.

I need to figure out a way to cheer myself on the way I would cheer on my children, husband, friends, family – heck even strangers! (Sorry, mom at Costco looking at the Contigo travel cups, but I really do believe your 20 month old can handle the button pushing to get a sip. I do. Why? Because I travelled A LOT with Thing 1 when he was much younger than that and he could do it. Kids are awesome! Believe it.)

But I digress …

I’m going to do this!

If you are someone who would like something written, you should hire me.

I know I can do this.

Until the retirement nest egg starts rolling in, I’ll just keep writing.

I hope you will keep reading and – even if I never hear it – cheering me on.

I’d do the same for you.

In fact, I already do.

  1. You know, there must be something in the air this week because I’ve been thinking a lot about my own writing lately, too. How I’ve been slacking in this regard a lot…not taking myself seriously with it. And if **I** can’t take myself seriously, then how can I expect anyone else to?

    So to you I will say — get yourself out there! YOU CAN DO IT IT!!!! (And I’ll say this to myself in the mirror tonight when I get home).

    • Is it that the sun is finally back and it feels safe to believe February is actually over?

      Thank you for your unending cheerleading! It really means a lot and it helps on the grey days more than you know. 🙂

      We’re gonna get all Stuart Smalley up in here! 😀

  2. It’s a tough gig, but when you get one…it’s just so awesome! Describing things IS my thing, but the feeling you get when you get paid to do something you love, like writing, is almost indescribable. It’s euphoric. It doesn’t get old…at least, it hasn’t so far!

    I know you can do it! I’ll be cheering you on 🙂

    • I love you!

      I miss you!!

      Thank you for your encouragement!!!

      My exclamation point usage is reaching new heights of ridiculousness!!!! 😀

      February was really rough. I am so very happy that it is Friday and the sun is shining!

  3. I’m proud of you. I’m glad you called yourself a writer. That’s a big important step! I love you and what you do and you deserve big things. Xo

    • Thank you! You are nice. 🙂

      I am trying. It is very challenging trying to convince myself it is worth it (or I am worthy), but I have to try. Do, even.

      I hope something good will come of it!
