It has been a very long time since I have updated my blog, which was back in March. I was also made aware of this by an avid fan/reader of my blog via my Facebook Fanpage in a personal message. I’ll admit, I was kind of in a writer’s “Funk“. No; not Writer’s Block, just a “Funk” and I was having some trouble digging myself out of it. You know when you have a bunch of weeds take over your garden after letting it “go” for so long (even if you don’t, just try to imagine this)? Ye-ah, that’s kind of what this was like. It felt like I was all alone to weed the mess by myself, but I didn’t have the strength or the energy to do the big arduous task alone. I needed help.
This fan (Not naming names, that’s up to them in comments) wrote me a very nice message asking me simply how I was doing and wanted to know if everything was all right since they hadn’t seen a post in a while. I very much appreciated this. I appreciate the thought a fan cared enough about me to ask me how I was doing. The conversation after? That’s what I needed to hear to rekindle a little “Oomph!” in my fire again.
I’m not rich. I’m not someone of high rank or prestige. I am no one famous (least not yet or I might be to my fans, no idea). I am simply a flower, trying to grow with what very little I can and sometimes…I get a little “choked out” by the “Weeds” around me. While more often than not, if a plant is determined enough to survive, it will, but sometimes they could use a helping hand. Like an extra pair of hands to help weed, feed and tend. I try to do as much good as I can in this world through the work that I do (my Readings, Guided Meditations, Classes, etc) and – my writing.
I have always felt my writing can be and is a very powerful tool in my arsenal. However, for all the good I try to do in this world it is a rare occurrence to be genuinely and sincerely thanked for what you do or to sometimes get a kind word of “Nice work!“, “Good Job!“, “I love what you do! Keep it up!“. I have done what I do for a good part of my life, even before I officially became an adult and went out into the world. I never expect any “Thank you!“s much less anything else. Oh sure, I got the “Superficial” thank yous, but those to me aren’t real.
