I’ve started something new. Something exciting and different. And I’ve learnt something from it.
In this blog post I described how I had a fresh start to 2015. How easing into the new year slowly revealed a new me. A lighter and more creative me.
One amazing opportunity that emerged during my fresh start was an offer to write a column “Being Happy, Staying Positive” for the Downs Champion. The first column was published this week and you can read it here.
Trying Something New
When I was approached to write the column I was interested. I reflected on it and it felt right. When I was asked “will you have time” I had the perfect response. This was something that ignited me.
Did I ever think that I’d be a newspaper columnist? No.
Did I ever think I’d be a writer? No.
Did I ever think I’d be styling and shooting photos for a media outlet? No.
And do you know what? I love writing the column. I love knowing that my words will help someone. I love creating and finessing the words until they feel right.
Writing the column ignites me. It makes me feel alive.
What I’ve Learnt
My advice to you is this – try something new. Try something you’ve never imagined doing. Do something that feels right.
You never know, it might ignite you.
With love and happiness,
