Happy Berthaday…Blog…

I can hardly believe that it’s been a year since I started blogging…but…yesterday…it was…and I’ve written and shared something almost every day since…

Now…this may not sound significant…you may think that I’m a writer…of course I write…of course I share…that’s what writers do…and you’d be correct…but…while I was…I wasn’t

Prior to starting the blog…I hadn’t written anything of note in about four years…well…except for my journal…and that’s not quite the same…

It took some pushing and shoving…to get me started…Bertha…and her cohorts…you know the random people who would ask me if I were writing and tell me that I should be…maybe you were one of them…had their work cut out for them…but…they were persistent…until…one day I sat down…and just did it…

And the next day it was rinse and repeat…and the next and the next…

I have to say that since I started writing again…my life has changed in more ways than I can fit into one blog…but…a significant change has been…I’m writing again…and…Bertha…is making a comeback…

Hmmm…I’m beginning to question her motives…was it purely fame and fortune that she was after…she assures me that it was not…it was new shoes…plain and simple…well not the shoes…hers are anything other than plain or simple…

But…more than that…I have a sense of peace…a sense of fulfillment…a sense of joy…that I didn’t have in the years I wasn’t writing…

Bertha…says…it’s part of living my truth…a very big part…finding the creative expression that sustains me…and giving it space in my life…
