I haven't written since Pa died. I can only write what is on my heart and that was where Pa was. Grief is a personal experience, and I didn't want my feelings to hurt any of my family or share something that they would want held private. Then I got out of the habit, and no one seemed to miss it so I put it on a shelf.
I have had an amazing 3 days attending Franklin Covey's 7 Habits of Successful People. I've used their book, Leader in Me, in my classroom this past year. It's good stuff. The training was looking at ourselves and how to apply the habits to our personal lives. Now, I LOVE personality quizzes and self-reflection. I get that's not everyone's cup of tea and that's fine too. But bear with me. Going through all of that self-reflection, I realized that I love to write. It brings me clarity and peace. I realized in the past that I wanted to encourage others with my writing and never realized that I was encouraging myself in the process. I need that in my life, and I am ok sharing that with you. :)
