I have a fire in my belly! A fire to invite the Law of Attraction into my life. It was sparked by manifesting the desire to write. I want to write for a living. I want to help people not only in the real outside world, as I do in my professional life, but I want to help people through my words.
I have been putting the work into this blog. I spent the better part of the weekend writing, working on the site layout, adding wigits (NOT an insect threat to farmland, as I originally thought) and just putting energy into it.
I used to breathe in Spirit and exhale manifestation. I used to focus on the world around me and see the bigger picture. I sort of misplaced that part of me for a while, but I feel so grateful to have found it again that it almost feels like I was missing a huge chunk of myself. I can tell you, she’s glad to be home.
In doing some research for the blog, I stumbled across some WordPress pages that help beginning bloggers make their blogs the best they can be. One thing stood out to me, if I wasn’t reading other blogs, I was missing a huge part of the best thing about blogging! So I did a deep-dive into different blogs and found some that blew me away. I found blogs that reminded me of what it’s like to wrap myself in love through the beauty of the natural world with MamaMickTerry’s Lipstick and Laundry, I swear I feel like I ran into an old friend when I stumbled onto her blog. We immediately discovered we have a love of the same author, Sarah Addison-Allen and I see a beautiful friendship in our future.
I also discovered a beautiful blog about improving food photography at Cheri Lucas Rowlands page, which you can find here. I used some of those tips tonight to take my photo for my 365Project, which was just frozen carrots, but I really enjoyed how the photo turned out.
All in all, it feels so damn good to be creative! To have an outlet to barf all my gratitude all over the place and not have one iota of second thought about it. I feel like through blogging I’ve found my people of like mind. Not everyone is a hipp-dippy creative like I am, but a bunch are, and that’s who I feel populate my tribe!
I feel like by creating beauty, introspection, tranquility and calm in my artistic world, I am inviting those aspects into my outside world as well. It feels so beautiful to get up in the morning and be one-hundred percent happy with where my life is right now. Not to say I don’t have goals, because of course I do, but I am happy with this very moment. This spot in the book of my existence is happy, and I never expected it to be. I am so full of gratitude and blessings that I almost annoy myself! My blessings jar indeed runneth over (not quite, but working on it).
So I’m putting it out there, folks. I want to write for a living. I don’t want to quit my job, but I wouldn’t turn away a second source of income. I also have a retirement goal on the outskirts of my vision, and I want to set myself up for a second chapter to my professional life. There. I’ve put it out there and am allowing the Law of Attraction to do its work. I trust that my Path is already being prepared for me and I just need to keep doing what I’m doing, walking through the doors that are opening and listening to my inner voice that nudges me along.
Right now, that voice is nudging me to get some dinner in my belly. So I wish you all a lovely evening, a beautiful tomorrow and blessings upon blessings.
