Finding that "voice" again

I want this to officially become my creative space. It has been a long time since I ventured out on a limb creatively here.  Life is good and busy, and I have been having a wonderful time with family and friends.  I don't want my writing to be shelved anymore. I'm hoping that I still have something deep in the vault to offer creatively.  Something is stirring inside and I am afraid to let too much time pass before I try to write again. I may have to carve out some time during the midnight hour to fully explore my creativity again.  During the day, I am happily occupied with the kids and everything else. I have toyed with the idea of moving away from the blog, but I can tell that I'm not ready for that definitive move. It's time for my poetry quickfires again and micro fiction pieces.  When I would devote that time for creativity, I felt more intact and stronger in a way.  So I'm coming back to see what pours out of me. Hopefully, it will have some value.

Update on Lily: She is recovering wonderfully. What a blessing for my whole family. She will be hopefully heart worm free around March 20th.  Then she can be the "full dog" that she would love to be again.  We'll get in a lot of exercise walks. That will be good for my aching bones too!

Good for you!! You can't stifle your creativity, especially when you feel it "stirring inside" of you. Powerful!! I will always stop by and read what you want to share!

I miss your poetry and your quick fire postings. Honestly, I have just missed you. I hop ewe will be reding more from you soon.

Oh and I am so happy to hear Lily is doing well. We will continue to offer prayers for her and her recovery. She sounds like she is truly an angel sent from above to your family. Be well.

Yea, Lily!!! So happy to hear that she is doing well.
Finding your voice again. Yes. We do sometimes lose our voice. I seem to have lost mine for quite some time now. I kind of know what that's about, but how to get it back? I'm not sure.
Hopefully, you will be my inspiration. :)
No pressure, lol.

I do hope you get to carve out some time for a creative outlet. It is good for the soul! And hooray for Lily!

I hope you do find your voice. I found that I was losing mine so I'm moving away from blogging (and into the PTO -- that stuff will suck up all your time.) And great news about Lilly!

I am sooooo happy to hear about sweet Lily...AWESOME!

I am also happy to hear you are re-exploring your creativity. Me too. I feel the same stirring...I am wanting to paint and wanting to write...

I set out fourteen months ago to cultivate some female friendships (as every woman NEEDS women friends) and have done so. I wanted to exercise and lose weight...but I turned my ankle last November and my goals for weight loss have slowed way down...

We have had a lot of company and a lot of travel...so time to ponder and prod within my mind is challenging...but I want to return to my writing too.

Let's stay in touch and encourage one another...

Awesome! You should be a nurse on top of all the other things you do. Lily is lucky to have such a wonderful mother.

Good for you! It is important to keep in touch with that creative side of yourself.

I am just coming back to my blog after being gone for almost 3 years. I missed having that outlet for my writing, even if it wasn't much deeper than observations on life with my kids. I enjoyed being able to express myself with words. So I am starting it up again. It will probably take awhile before I am really back into my groove, but that's ok. I am not trying to prove anything to anyone; just trying to unearth the creative side of myself that I let be buried under the duties of life for so long.

Best of luck with your writing!
