Today’s prompt for Five Minute Friday: View

Honestly, I don’t even know where I should start. My view right now makes me numb. Staring at the screen all day, doing things I would rather not be doing– it makes me extremely numb.

You see, I stumbled on a book this morning that has made me finally say it. I am a writer. I am not a blogger. I am not a virtual assistant. I am a writer. The view I want more than anything right now is the view of me typing away and sharing the stories that are within me.

Five Minute Friday

Writing is my passion. My view when I write is the clearest I have ever had. I want nothing more than to share that view with others.

When I write, I feel alive. I feel like I am doing what I am supposed to be doing.

My view when I look around is my family encouraging me. My husband is my hero. He is my rockstar. He pretty much is the one pushing me to change my view so that I can walk into this calling that I have long put on the backburner.

My children get excited when I share our stories with others. When I look around at them, my heart swells with pride. I have the best cheerleaders in the world. They see the potential in me long before I saw it in myself. They believe in me. Now it’s time I believe in myself. My view hopefully will be changing soon.

    Hi Jennifer,
    I enjoyed and related to your honest post.
    I too, for about the last year, took that big gulp, almost sheepishly, that yep, I am a writer.
    I have not had quite the support you have had, probably my own fault since I don’t communicate my inner thoughts very well, except when I write of course, which is the confirmation right?
    I think I need to poke around your site some more, I sense good vibes.

      Hi Leah

      Thank you so much for your sweet words. I hope that you stay and look around for a while. I love writing and sharing my thoughts on life. I am working on weeding all the “other” stuff out and just writing. Just have not gotten there yet :)
