@shalonsims WOW! I’m digging how much you can relate–those are some creepy cool coincidences indeed!
I can relate to your realization about writing as a way to find purpose and meaning. I feel like writing IS one of my purposes in life. And, the story I’m working on hits close to home on that front, too, because it’s about a character dealing with the loss of her life’s purpose. It seeks to answer the question, “what do you do when you can no longer achieve your dreams?”
BTW, therapy helped me a lot, too, when I was going through a divorce.
I love your motto! Perfectionism is tough and I’ve struggled with it but have gotten much better by constantly reminding myself that perfection doesn’t exist. Prioritizing and embracing failure as a learning opportunity helped me, too.
Yessssss, time to finish those stories! Is any of yours posted to Wattpad yet? I want to read it!
Thanks for the warm welcome.
Oh, and I just moved into a new condo with a balcony so maybe I’ll get some succulents and a pot of rosemary or something that can grow in the desert.
