I don’t like spiders. At all.
A little while ago, I was deep in thought about writing and life and lo and behold I look at the bottom of the door and see a ginormous black widow. All of a sudden my worries and frustration’s disappeared but were replaced with fear. I just knew more would come out and surround me, climb up my legs, and bite me.
I know, an unhealthy, unrealistic fear.
And then it hit me. I could use this moment to my advantage. Back inside I wrote down my feelings while fresh, and will use them to enhance my current WIP.
Take control. But stay away from the spiders! Just in case…
p.s. Having said all that, I’m still so freaked out by the spider that I can’t even look for a picture to set as main image. 😩 Oh well, baby steps…
YOUR STORY IS NOT OVER.
“All the darkness in the world cannot extinquish the light of a single candle.” ~ St. Francis of Assisi
This post is in honor of Amy Bleuel, the founder of Project Semicolon. It is a project dedicated to helping people who struggle with mental illness. Sadly, on March 23, 2017, she committed suicide. My heart breaks for her and her family. She was, and will continue to be, a light in this world for those who suffer with mental illness.
If you or a loved one struggles with any mental illness, especially suicidal thoughts, PLEASE ASK FOR HELP.
DO NOT GIVE UP HOPE
**YOU ARE NOT ALONE.**
Visit Project Semicolon to read Amy’s story, and to FIND HELP if you need it.
Take some time to read some very personal stories from those who struggle and how they have found a safe haven and love within this project.
In love and rememberance of Amy Bleuel 🕯❤ and for those whose story isn’t over;
I send love.
A journey begins with the first step just as writing begins with the first word. It’s a slow, deliberate process but if you write every day you’ll reach the end, accomplish a goal, possibly get published. It’s what we dream of.
“It’s your road, and yours alone. Others may walk it with you, but no one can walk it for you.” — Rumi
