At age 43, I started feeling the need to leave a legacy and make a difference as big or as small as I can. I have dealt with my own challenges in my life and I thought sharing my experience with others might make a difference. Writing them down is my way of sharing them. The thought of writing a book has been on my mind for a long time. I began working on it in 2012 and started writing more seriously at the end of 2015. This story is about challenges of my life. Despite their difficulties and bitterness, I still look at them as opportunities for growth. I believe I had to go through all of them in order to grow, to get to know myself better and to create more inner peace.
I have never written before except for my little journals and English is my second language. Nevertheless, I started writing my memoir and found writing to be a liberating activity that fits my personality and ignites a passion in me. I fell in love with writing. I am learning how to become a writer which is an empowering experience. I need to share this experience and the progress of it. This process is awakening! It is simply amazing! I do see the bumps in the road but I embrace its ups and downs. Challenge accepted!!
This blog will share my learning, feelings, thoughts, and the progress of writing my Memoir, publishing, and promoting it.
Let’s see how it goes!
Can’t wait to see you on the road ahead.
