good things to come.

Be yourself. Above all, let who you are, what you are, what you believe, shine through every sentence you write, every piece you finish.
{John Jakes}

So I am still unable to blog at work… which I think is totally wrong because in this field {social work} it is absolutely necessary to be creative. But I intend to trick the system! Right now I am sitting at my desk typing away about an amazing thing that has happened. If you are reading this now, it is because I copied my word document onto my blog for your viewing pleasure. Deep breath.

I have been vigorously writing away this week. Searching for inspiration that seems so obvious, yet at times is so hard to find. But this is my passion. To write. And I have been working all week long on a journalism portfolio that I intend to turn in to a local newspaper tomorrow. Here it is folks: my first attempt.

I hope that I’m good enough. It’s not even about the pay right now because I have a steady job, but what I really want is to see my work published. To know that I followed a dream and that it’s slowly becoming a reality. Just thinking that one day I will be able to write for a living excites me to no end. And everyone needs a little hope now and then. Something to look forward to.

And if they don’t like my work, too bad for them. Because I have enough passion inside of me to try and try again. Somebody will look through my portfolio and think she’s just what we need. This is my journey, and if nothing else I have articles to share and more and more experience every single day that my pen touches a blank page.

What’s your passion? I hope that once you recognize it, you follow it for the remainder of your life. I hope it gives you freedom and hope and tingles in your belly.


  1. mmmmmm. i'm sure you are more than good enough, dear! and i bet someone will discover your beautiful words, and it will touch something in their heart and before you know it, we'll be seeing your work published somewhere! i have no doubt.

    i have a lot of passions. i love photography, and painting, and dance. but i love to make movies, and to act. i get a lot of laughs, because people don't understand. they think i want to be famous and to make lots of money, but that couldn't be farther from the truth. i love to tell stories. and make people laugh. i love to tug at people's hearts and set their souls on fire. all through the power and art of movies. when i act or direct - i feel most like myself, i feel on top of the world... it's unlike any feeling and if i can only touch one person's life through my art... then it's all worth it. to make a difference for just one person, is all i want. i don't care if people think it's silly or a stupid life choice, the people who love me most support me, and i know i'm following my dreams for the right reasons - to make a difference, to change the world even in some small way, to bring hope and joy and laughter all over the world, to give people hope and to shed on light on causes and issues that are important to me... and really, that's all that matters.

    i hope you continue to pursue what you love. don't ever stop, don't ever change. <3

  2. I believe that everything happens for a reason, if your portfolio is instantly snapped up, you're ready to embrace success! And if not, just a little more time to practice and become even more capable. Best of luck :)

  3. did you know that you can set up your blog to be updated by e-mail?
    you can! so you can just type up your posts and then e-mail them to your blog. another way around the system.

    the persistance and resolve you show and the need and itch to write and share your work shows how passionate you are about this. i love your attitude towards being published and love that you have set a solid, ambitious goal! best of luck, sweetheart!

    as for me, i am passionate about changing the world in my own uniqie way, everyday adventures, writing, yoga, and skateboarding! i'm not quite sure how they go together yet, but i am working on it.


speak your mind! always!
