It has been a year of considerable change for me: beginning with joining Life Leadership, and then creating this endeavor just a month later. Life and its myriad teachings (through audios, books, and mentors) gave me the spirit, mindset, drive, and confidence necessary to bring my writing to a public sphere. There are no words to adequately describe what this page has done for me. I now know I can publish not just a book, but many, if I so desire. The time frame is practically irrelevant– I needed to create the space, this niche, to prove to myself that I can write. I can write, and write passably well. Practice will eventually catapult me to a plane of confidence where I will bang out a spectacular marvel of a novel that will gain some measurable success! I innately know this to be true, as well as I know my own name. Writing is what I was put here to do. It is my passion; it completes, fulfills me. God will, in His divine sovereignty and time, open the doors of opportunity as I come to them on my crazy life’s journey. I’m so hopeful, excited, passionate, anticipatory and enthusiastic to see where His mighty hand leads!
This new confidence, this zest for life, is so new to me. I never saw myself here prior to this time last year. Certain people, blessings to me all, spoke life into me to bring me here– but mostly it was belief in myself, my capabilities, that led me to create Verbose Lady.
As for my story, it’s slow going. I still very much love Gwen, David, Liesl, Lily, and Caleb–all and sundry of my characters! I do. I will stick with them and journey with them a while yet. If a new, better idea dawns, well, they had a good run. I am all for sojourning down the sometimes (often-who am I kidding??) arduous road from ‘good’ to ‘great’! One can’t linger in mediocrity forever; we don’t know how long we have to do something legendary, and if we don’t try, no one can try for us. Amen?? God gave us gifts unique to each of us individually. We mustn’t repay him by squandering them. I will leave my mark among the leaves of something special and uniquely me, so be on the alert for it! Chrissy has arrived, ready to learn, grow, and master her craft!
God bless you all, my lovely, faithful readers, new and old! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sticking with me all year long. Here’s to many, many more!
Be blessed today! 🌹✒
