Steve keeps asking me…” when are you going to put out another blog?” Well, talk about brain fag….writers block…lol. I don’t consider myself a writer so the thought of that is quite funny to me…but it really is a thing.
I’ve been home like the rest of the world with plenty of time on my hands to sit down and write blog after blog.
Every day there is a new headline! First, it was COVID that took over my entire life and all of my thoughts. Frustrations over not seeing my grandchildren and friends seemed so superficial. The uncertainty of the world is definitely a subject that everyone is talking about…but none of us…least of all me…are experts. Every time I start to write, something else happens in the world. I feel that no matter what I write it just won’t be important!
I have a small group of ladies that I meet with for nibbles and cocktails. We sit and discuss all that is going on in our city and across the globe. We have discovered there is a new language in the world. We have yet to learn it. Personally, I’m nervous. What if I say or act or look the wrong way? We all agree we want a better world a united world and we are determined to do the right thing but are actually unsure how to go about it. There is much to learn and we may stumble but we need to keep learning and do our personal best to bring about a positive change to this world….an inclusive world, a fair world, a safer world.
I had a young friend over for dinner and we too chatted about the state of everything around us. I told her how apprehensive I was to write…she is in her 30’s and I feel she is so much more in tune with how to go about change than I am. She urged me to keep doing what I love doing. If that is posting about a favourite recipe or my garden I need to keep doing it and stop worrying whether others will perceive it as frivolous. I preach to my kids constantly about not letting fear hold them back from anything. My life…mine and Steve’s life together has been about building confidence in our kids and now our granddaughters too. Yet here I am…afraid. I am afraid that this blog is insignificant, nothing I write about will be intelligent enough to matter in the grand scheme of things.
So here I am….sitting at my desk writing in circles. I am hoping that you, my followers, will continue to follow me and share my blog with others…and not expect too much from me…and just except this blog for what it is….nothing more than a simple hobby of mine.
Keeping you all in my thoughts and praying to all of the goodness that remains in the world that we are all safe and healthy. Take care and hopefully, I’ll have another post very soon 🙂
