Well, here I am again: posting. A journal entry. Because you know what? I enjoy writing A LOT.

I write fanfiction. I write a semi-professional-type blog for a local support group. I write original stories. I write emails. I write what I'm going to say next, in my head.  I lovelovelovelove writing.

And you know what? A person should do what they love. Because nothing is more important than that.

Well, that's not entirely true. Food, water, air, friendship, self-care, and inner strength are more important. But doing what you love, or at least loving what you do, are way way up there in my opinion.

Me? I work with children, and I write, and I draw. I don't post my drawings because a lot of them are too similar to each other; something I'm working on. I'm getting so much better and I'm so proud of myself, but I'm still nowhere near the level I want to be.  But you know what? I'm getting there, and that's what matters.

I am getting there, by God, and I am loving it. So here's hoping that everyone who reads this is getting where they want to be. By hops, by leaps, by inches, by miles. By seconds, by minutes, by breaths, by words and inspiration and heartbreak—GET THERE. Because 'THERE' is a damn fine place to be.
