Ignoring your Passion is Slow Suicide


Today I fell in love with WordPress all over again and realized how much I’ve missed blogging and having this place for myself. They’ve now introduced a help chat box that pops up when you log in – oh happy days! The problem with mapping my domain name properly fixed in one minute and five dollars with the help of the lovely Rachel. N00bs everywhere take note you don’t have to search around aimlessly to use WordPress properly anymore! For someone like me that just wants to write this is like Nirvana. Now I can write what I want when I want and hopefully make my blog better and more fun to read in the process. The whole looking at my blog again thing started via a Facebook GIF (okay I had to look that up to make sure I was using the terminology correctly, seems I am.)

And I looked at that and thought my passion has always been writing and yet in the last year, one of my most horrendous I have written nary a word, no wonder I feel like I’m dying inside.

A lot of people have asked me why I don’t try to write for a living, I always thought it would be impossible but now I’m starting to realize that the only thing that’s been hindering me is my lack of conviction. I see so many people writing and calling themselves writers and I think, I could do better than that. So what the hell is stopping me? My best guess would be fear. So I’m going to make this one short and sweet so that I can get on with the task at hand and start writing some stuff with some meat in it and hopefully along the way find my true voice and fall in love all over again with that which defines me.
