It’s the 31st day of a 31 day series on the love of writing. I kind of need to wrap this up and tie a bow around it. I started this series with no clear idea of where it was going. Imagine my shock when I realized it was, once again, all about peace.
Last year, as I wrapped up my 31 day series on ANGER, I wrote
it was all about peace after all.
This year, as I’ve blathered on about pants, it’s still true. It’s still all about peace.
I did this for me.
I was up front and honest at the start of this series. I’ve spent an entire month wallowing in my own self doubt and trying to regain my voice. I recognize it was a bit painful and tedious at times and I wouldn’t blame you if you skipped a few posts with an eye roll.
It was worth it.
I’ve regained some confidence and focus. I’ve figured out how to add writing and blogging back into the chaotic mix of my life WITHOUT letting my laundry pile up to the ceiling.
It’s been good for me.
First, I’m going to take the weekend off. I’ve earned it.
I’ll be back on Monday. I can say that with confidence because I’ve already written and scheduled the post.
Over the next few weeks, I’ll be rolling out some better organization for my blog, a bit of a new look, and some new ideas. I’ll also be returning to some of my old favorites and giving them a facelift.
How often will I post? Less than seven days a week. More than twice a week. Not as much during the holidays, more when I’ve got a lot to say.
Will there really be an ebook? Yes. More than one. I can’t wait.
What will I write about? It’s all about PEACE, remember?
P for Passion. Live your life with passion. Enjoy this season of life because it’s fleeting. Love your life.
E for Encourage. Be encouraged. Dream big. Live in God’s timing.
A for Authenticity. You aren’t alone in your struggle.
C for Character. Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, self-control, goodness, faithfulness, and gentleness. But also… thankfulness, excellence, courage…
E for Excellence. Live your purpose. Live with margin.
It’s just as true this year as it was last year and I can find no better way to close this series.
In the middle of my mess, I found peace.
I found peace in unlikely places.
Somehow, I’m still in awe of a God who can take my messy life and use it this way. I’m in awe of how all those ugly angry moments of mine can turn into words that touch another heart so far away. I’m in awe of how God can transform me and make me new each and every time. I’m in awe of how God makes beautiful things…
Never forget that you are beautiful.
I wish you peace.
