When I first began writing my book I agonized on where to start.  I wandered around several attempts and never quite got in the groove.  There was so much I wanted to say, to talk about, to share that it all seemed to want to come out at once.

I worked on chapters, paragraphs, and even short little sentences, all without an ending that made sense. 

I spoke with my son, a journalism graduate, and asked him what I do to get my book going.  His advice;  “start anywhere…  don’t worry about grammar, punctuation, spelling, or even upper or lower case – just start typing what you’re thinking about, what you feel, what you have experienced and later, when it’s on paper, you can sort it out to how you want to present it.”

The same thing applied to the struggles I experienced when the change in my life left me without a direction to what to do next.  Like my book, there were so many things to think about, to fear, to be sad and angry about.  So much changed in me that I froze trying to figure out how my life could ever fit me again.  Where did I start to move on?  One sentence at a time.

My son’s advice was right on that starting anywhere naturally brought everything together.  You can do that too.  What you are feeling right now – there it is, your starting point.  Go for it, look at it, talk to it and about it.  Do it, explore, accept, and embrace your next steps.

You can do it, begin to re-define your life with your unique chapters.  Your amazing journey will never cease.

Let your light shine.
