For the past 30 minutes, I have been determined to avoid writing this. And yet, here I am , because I am also still determined, on day 353 out of 365, to write every day for a year, to keep this commitment to myself. Even if my writing sucks. Even if I don’t know what to write.
I have seen my determination show up in other areas of my lie too: in my desire to show my children my love and support during their challenging moments; to accomplish various things like winning art battle and a juried art show; and in continually being willing to look at the ways I am holding onto my stories and to find ways to move past them.
