5 Things I’ve Learned So Far in 2014

Four months down for 2014 and it has been an
eventful one for me. From new writing schedules, projects, opportunities, and
personal growth.  I am of the thought that my writing and real life are
blended, intimately woven within one another, akin to an intimate dance–where
one foot moves the other follows in rhythm.
 1.  Life is
the art of drawing without an eraser.” ~John W. Gardner. This quote
resonates with me so much because I am a work-in-progress, there will be ebbs
and flows, valleys and peaks, good and bad. Wherever my path leads, I have
faith that the journey will be well worth it, no eraser or correction fluid
needed.  I guess that is where the artistry comes in, the inner knowing
that all is well. 
2.  The end of a thing
brings about the beginning of another. Change in life is inevitable. Sometimes
you’re better at accepting it and other times you are not. 
3.  Fear is a b*tch,
but can be broken.  Fear of the unknown can be tremendously stressful, but
again this goes to #1, life doesn’t come with some manual. We expand, we
stretch–sometimes painfully so, and yet when it is all said and done,
hopefully we can say we are better than when we begun. 
4. Reboot, restart and
rejoice! Starting over can be the best thing that ever happens to you.  Of
course it comes along with growing pains, but I’ve learned in life and
creatively, something new can break through years of playing the middle field.
5. Nikki Giovanni said “A lot
of people refuse to do things because they don’t want to go naked, don’t want
to go without guarantee. But that’s what’s got to happen. You go naked until
you die” This one is an ongoing thing for me as I move deeper into my
creativity. I’m gamed.
