It has been a while since I have posted to this blog and it is because sometimes life gets in the way. Mine became all-consuming and I started to drift off into a place where I felt detached from myself. I was just a robot doing what needed to be done and existing but not living. The more time away from writing, the more I became detached. Words are my life! My goal is to get it back and focus on what matters “MOST”, hence, the title Re-Visioning.
I have my students revise their drafts because sometimes it lacks focus, purpose, or careless mistakes have been made. Some drafts are beautifully written but can be taken to the next level. That is how I explain it when they ask why they have to revise.
Life can be revised. Sometimes we get into a pattern where we lose focus, purpose and make careless mistakes. Sometimes we are at the top of our game but just need to switch gears and try something new.
I am at that point. I am re-visioning my life and doing what works for me and mine (my household). My goal of getting published this year did not occur because I drifted and got caught up in existing. Do not let this happen to you and if it does, know that you can switch gears. A new year is coming but more importantly a new day. It doesn’t matter how far down the wrong path you have traveled, as long as you stop and turn around. We can constantly recreate the life that we want for ourselves. We can constantly revise our plans when thrown a curve ball. We can re-vision our purpose. It is never too late. What I will not do is look back another 10 years from now and ask “Why didn’t I even try?”
