It’s about life. It’s that feeling you get when for a moment life makes complete sense and you know who you are and what you want. It’s a magical feeling not everyone is blessed to ever feel. It is giving of yourself, sharing your soul and pouring your heart out. It is knowing that for a short period of time you gave something to people that matters to them, and at the pinnacle, even made them happy. This is what writing is for me.
I would love the life of a rich and successful writer. Who wouldn’t? I dream of a day when I can make enough people feel something important from my writing that the financial value provides me with what I need to live. When I write I feel good, when I write something people like I feel great, when I write something people love, well that is nothing short of a spiritual sensation.
I want people to enjoy my writing, but the act of writing is so meaningful to me that it would be important in my life even if no one ever saw my words. But when other people are part of the process I feel more alive than I ever imagined I could, and that has felt like God’s greatest gift to me. Any misfortunes or failures I have experienced in my life only remain in my mind for the lessons they teach, but the pain they caused me are almost wiped out by the joy I have in recognizing and understanding what it is I want to do more than anything else, not just today but for the rest of my life.
For those of you who have always encouraged my writing I want you to know how grateful I always am for the warm words of support and appreciation. But the truth is I want to thank anyone whoever takes even a few minutes of their time in their life to read the words that come from my mind, my heart and my soul. The connection it makes me feel to the world around me is unparalleled.
When you find something you love, life becomes more meaningful, the future less scary, the past more acceptable, and maybe most importantly the present more exceptional. And when you find it, you wish that same good fortune for everyone, as I do for all of you.
Thank you and God bless,
