Writing is a passion. Writing is my passion. I think I have mentioned that here quite a number of times.
My write ups have been published in magazines, newspapers and various websites. I wrote regularly for a parenting magazine for about two and a half years (until the owners decided to cease publication of said magazine) and I have contributed to several others after that. One would think that I should be used to it by now — that is, seeing my work published somewhere.
Truth be told, the excitement doesn’t really go away. Every time an article I wrote gets published, I just can’t help but be thrilled. My heart is so filled with pure joy. I am like a little girl on Christmas morning.
I am a shy writer, though. I rarely advertise my work out of fear of being judged or criticized. And yet I also know that if there are lessons that I wish to impart, stories that I want to tell, wisdom that I want to share, then I should not be embarrassed nor shy.
I should believe in myself first before I can expect others to believe in me.
I write not because I know everything. I write because I know some things and I want to inspire others with the knowledge that I have.
Sharing a link to an article that I wrote for an online publication. This is shameless plugging, yes, but you can never know what little nugget of wisdom you may get…
So grab a cup of coffee, hit the link and please, do enjoy!
