HERE ARE MY ANSWERS:
I sincerely enjoy bringing encouragement both in speech and in writing. I decided to begin writing about everyday moments. Everyday, there are several moments we can perhaps all talk about and be an encouragement to someone else with.
As I began my blog, I noticed there were those who really enjoyed reading them, commenting and sharing them with others. Recently, I wrote about keeping prayer a priority, I really appreciated the response as some mentioned they noticed how they were not spending time to pray as they used to before the pandemic.
Some really proud moments first and foremost are that I have been an invited blogger on other sites and organizations after becoming a blogger. Receiving this blogger recognition truly makes me proud too, I must admit.
Something very important that I had to learn and am still working on is to write purely. I want to make sure that my writing is clear and brings encouragement to everyone taking time to read them. I don’t want to be selfish in my writing but consider the one reading my blogs. I like to hear from my readers and sincerely appreciate when they share my writings with others.
I have to be honest, my first priority is taking time with God in the Bible and in prayer daily. This is something that continues to be helpful for me in my mind, body and spirit.
My favorite thing to do for self-care is exercise. When the gyms closed due to the pandemic earlier this year, I made sure to either take a 30 minute run or go for a walk at least 3-4 times a week.
Perhaps, some may have the misconception that I purposely only write one or two blogs a month. The truth is I sincerely wish I could write more often. I wear several hats and you need to make time when you have a full schedule. Blogging for me is not just a hobby, I really desire to do more and have become more intentional about it. There will be updates coming very soon. So stay tuned.
Pieces of advice, I would give is to make sure you write purposely. Allow yourself to be pure in your writing and work hard at it. I believe every writer has something important to share and there is someone who needs to read it. Let’s inspire and encourage one another. Become a cheerleader for others and decide to not only look for praise for yourself alone.
