That was only partially true.
I work because I have to, not because I get any serious joy out of it. I used to say I was like the guy from Office Space, my dream career was to do nothing. But if I look at what I really enjoy doing:
My friend Chanel began to post on Facebook about writing and following your dreams. And at first the posts were calm. And then, they became more urgent "HEY SUCKA, YOU LIKE TO WRITE? YOU BETTER WRITE THEN!" And even though she didn't know it, she was talking to me the whole time.
We chatted, and since then I've been researching, and writing, and thinking, and writing, and brushing up on my grammar, and writing. And writing. And I found something that I thought I'd lost, a sense of fulfillment.
Sometimes, when something is in you, and you feel like you have to share it, it's not about you at all. God's using you to help someone else.
Thank you, for rekindling that part of my spirit. I'm glad to have you on this journey with me.
