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 weekly learning, feelings, thoughts, and the progress of writing my Memoir. I might feel comfortable sharing pieces of the story if the piece is ready.
Let’s see how it goes!
Can’t wait to see you on the road ahead.
