I have been finding lately that I am getting discouraged with my writing. I feel like I never have enough time to do anything. I came across this little motivational tidbit somewhere….Pintrest maybe? When I saw this I realized that I am only 25, I have my whole life ahead of me still to get the things done that I want to get done. I thought I would share it with my loves….save it for when you get knocked down.

Envious


On days where it seems like I am hitting a brick wall with my characters, I get so envious. Of who you ask? My kids :/ They are 1, 3, and 5. Their imagination astounds me all the time. It reminds of me that children are so innocent, they haven’t been tainted by life’s worries yet. There is no stress blocking their creative flow, it just comes naturally, and though I am a little envious, I am also so happy they can experience that for some of their life anyway 🙂

On another note, my husband and I are trying to buy a house and as we look at different places, all I can think of is “Is there a space for me to write?” Can I find some nook and cranny where I can have a corkboard and messy piles of papers and sticky notes all over things? I hope so. I need a space to let my creativity thrive, where I don’t have to put it away.

Do you have a special place where you write?

Much love~

Mi Familia

Still Young


They walk by me

Only seeing each other

They drag their feet

In the dirt

Laughter echoes

Through open space

No one else in their world

Finding comfort

In a secluded place

Behind the trunk

Of an old weeping tree

They wrap themselves in

Invisibility

Unaware I can see them

Quick kisses

Gentle shoves

I have watched

My life drifts by

Feeling the hope

 Of two people

Who are still young.
