It's Right to Write

So here's the deal. I want to to write.

To me to write is 'right' and truth be told I have wanted to write for over 15 years now.

When I was in my 20's I thought, I'm too young, no one will care about what I have to say. I also had no clue how to go about the business of writing. In fact, I still have no idea how to pursue writing. . . so I'm just doing it. There is nothing quite like jumping in clueless!!

Now, I'm smack in the middle of my 30's. 35 to be precise. I still wonder if anyone will want to read about my journey, about my trials and lessons and the unique observations and miracles that I've witnessed in my life. I wonder where this adventure will lead me.

But there is something different now.

When question that arise in me such as, will anyone care? Will anyone praise me? Will anyone like what I write? What will my friends say? Will my dad approve? I no longer feel limited by the fear I have inside about all these things.

I experience the fear, and let it be and then put it aside and say to hell with it I'm writing anyway.
