Space & light, what a gift!
THIS IS MY NEW WRITING SPACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here is my "old" writing space:
As you can see, the new space is SO much more cheerful! In my old space, the blind didn't work so if I wanted light I had to keep the ceiling fan fixture on (artificial, blech!), the walls were brown, and our bed was two feet away from my desk. Many a morning I just rolled out of bed and into the chair to write a post (yah, right...).
My new space is officially called an ante room (which is just a fancy way of saying you have to walk through the room to get to our bedroom). Because I am a less-than-fancy person, I call it "my office". And I chose my favorite shade of blue for the walls to inspire me as I write.
The other day when I was working in my office (no honey, not looking at Facebook...), I felt a deep wave of gratitude. I have been blessed with more space to create, a color I LOVE surrounding me, and several of these wordy inspirational messages placed all over the room:
That is my favorite one. But, here's another good one:
Even though I don't know exactly where God is going to take my writing, I am certain with all of this great energy surrounding me, the sky is the limit! All I keep thinking to myself is:
God does provide when we Believe!
In the past year I have gone from "just" writing a book and a blog, to writing a parenting series on Suburban Parent Magazine's website (www.suburbanparent.com) and being given a column in our local newspaper (www.crosstimbersgazette.com)! I also decided to begin a book discussion group which centers around books to inspire us to become our best selves.
I feel like this is just the beginning. If you have been following my writing, I want to thank you because I know how precious your time is. I know God is going to lead me to great things in my new space and I hope you will continue to follow my writing adventure!
