The Water

Have you ever ‚Äčeaten a big, delicious meal, then eyed a 3-layer perfectly frosted cake sitting on the counter? 

Mmm. It looks sooo good! Give me just one, little bite! But, there just isn’t room.

Something similar happened to me recently, minus the calories. In my post Try Anyway, I told you that I was given an opportunity for a paid writing position. 

Heck yeah!! I really, really wanted to try it. And, I did. I spent the better part of a couple of weeks reading, researching, and learning new writing skills. 

Late nights and I became best buds. I poured my heart into trying to get the best article I could. I’ve got to be honest with you here, it was a struggle. 

Something just wasn’t falling into place, you know? I kept pushing myself anyway, but something just felt off.

A few days ago, clarity came marching in while I was standing at the creek bank.

Maybe when Little Bit is grown or maybe when my own books are published, the time will come to write for others. Right now though, I feel like I’m supposed to be writing for myself. 

I withdrew the article I was working on and I’m at total peace with that. What a gift this experience has been. I’ve learned so much about myself. 

Funny how the answers I needed came, simply by being at the water.
