Seek – Tuesday at 10
I normally see a prompt word and something to share comes to my mind right away, but I have been spending all morning mulling over the word seek trying to find words to say to go along with it.
I try to think of something I am seeking or something I have looked for in the past, but my mind just is empty. To be totally honest, I am relieved and sad the 31 days of writing is over. It was such an undertaking to blog everyday for a month and all the ideas and excitement that went along with blogging have suddenly died down. I am not sure what changed. I should be excited about what comes next, but instead I keep focusing on the lack of growth in followership and wonder if it is all worth it.
I enjoy sharing my thought and I want to encourage women, I just have to keep reminding myself it takes time.
So then out of nowhere as I write I realize I must be seeking something out of this blog or what would the point of writing be. I know I want to share my story of being a combat veteran because I think it is important for people to hear the day in truths of what it is like to be in the military and stationed overseas. I want to let Moms know how amazing they are. Often times people look down on the daily struggles it is to be a stay at home mom or working mom. Each day brings a new challenge. I hope to encourage and inspire.
And then I have to stop and think; am I seeking the possibility of this blog growing so it can financially support my family? Although that would be an awesome addition to my blog, in reality not having deadlines and only having a story to share takes away some of the pressure. I am free to be me and I am free to share whatever is on my mind. I hope in a year’s time I am still inspired to keep on writing and sharing, but if my life takes me to seek a different path then I guess that is where I will go.
For some reason I am feeling a bit discouraged with writing, but I will continue writing and sharing. Thanks to all who stopped by to read.
Are you dealing with a difficult situation and need some encouragement? What are you seeking or looking for? Please share below. I would love to encourage you.
*Linking up with Finding the Grace Within as part of her Tuesday at Ten series. In KarenBeth’s own words, here is a brief desription of the exercise:
“Here is how it works:
Every Tuesday at 10am I post a prompt word/Photo, and you will have 1 week to write and link up on your blog, and then link up on the “Tuesday at Ten” site by using the “link up on my blog”.
Make sure you post the “Tuesday at Ten” logo (on the left) at the end of your writing so that others can link up and also join.
Creativity is the key! You can use photos, you can use anything that is unique in your own way to display the prompt word.
The prompt word stays up for 1 WEEK until the new Tuesday at Ten is posted!
The linkup closes Monday night in preparation for the new prompt word. I will choose two writers who had the best creative way of writing or showing of the “prompt word”on their blog, and they will be showcased on Tuesday at Ten blog, and Facebook page for that week.” (KarenBeth on her blog.)
