Why Not?

by LimebirdRaven

I’ve hit rock bottom more time than I care to count in my life.  Sometimes I thought I was already there and then things got worse.  Last year was that for me.  Still life goes on with or without me.  I feel guilty some days, free other days.  I can’t change the past.  I need to live again.  I don’t want to go through the motions, drifting along with the current anymore.  What’s life without risk?  Why not give it a try?

It’s time to put myself out there.

It’s time to write again.

  1. Welcome back Raven. Glad to see you writing again. 🙂

  2. Do it, Raven! 😀

    I’ve always believed we build our courage best when we start in a place that’s safe. Even great warriors like Alexander were taught, trained, and honed their skills before they went out to stare death in the face (and conquer!). This Limebirds space is a great place to do that. (Not the conquer part…that comes later.)

    You sound like you’re already chomping at the bit, so I won’t take up your headspace. Pen at the ready, and full speed ahead! 😀

  3. Last year was awful for me too, I don’t want to think about it again. Ever. 2013 must be better.

  4. Well you’ve already started the ball rolling by doing this post, so you’re on your way! Here’s hoping 2013 is a better year for all of us 🙂

  5. It IS a risk, hanging your stuff out there for all to see. Courage.

    • I hadn’t thought of it that way. Now I’m scared!! LOL JK. Thank you for the encouragement. Courage has never been my strong point, but I know I can do this. I know I was meant to do this. I have to get it out there.

  6. Well I hope that this year is better for you. I shall certainly look forward to reading your posts.

    • This year is already better! My daughter has moved back to this area and I get to see her and my grandson a lot more often. She’s staying with a friend but alternates about two weeks there and two weeks here until she gets on her feet. It’s so good to see her smiling again. I hated that rat she was dating….LOL!

      • That must make you feel so much better – I don’t think there is anything worse than someone hurting our children – here’s the finger to the rat! Ha Ha! So glad that you’re feeling a bit better.

  7. Sometimes the most courageous thing we can do is start.

  8. I’m glad you’re in a place where you can work again. Maybe there is a lot of material to be mined from that awful year. Good luck!

  9. Welcome back Raven! I hope in 2013 you are inspired by unexpected things 🙂

  10. I’m glad to see you post, Raven. If you get discouraged, I will always be here to tell you what a beautiful person you are.

  11. I felt just like you recently – never wanted to write again. I’m commenting on people’s blogs as a way to get started again. And I do feel better.

  12. Write again…you’ll find it the most refreshing thing…sometimes you need a break, but you will always come back. 🙂

    • Thank you. I will do that. I didn’t get much done last night, only a paragraph, but I’d been stuck for two days before that. Getting a story out there is easy. Transforming it into something that people will want to read is something entirely different. I’m not good at editing my own works. Can’t kill my darlings.

  13. Welcome back Raven! 2013 sounds like your year! Go get it!
