I'm writing a book. No I didn't go to school for journalism. My English grammar is not the best and my thoughts might mean nothing to you. However, they might mean something to someone else and for that I would find victory. I find that helping one person, inspiring just one, is worth it.
As to why I am writing a book and starting this blog you ask? This translates back to my dad and losing people in life. The fact of life is that it is made for you lose people. Sad? Yes. A bit dramatic? Yes. True though? Yes. We are born to die. I find that statement bold and slighty depressing. One of the most beautiful things in life is when someone has the chance to bring someone into this world. However, there doesn't seem to be anything beautiful about people leaving this world. But what if there was? Or if there is. I think this though is for only the people who leave us to know and for us still lucky enough to be here to find out when our time comes.
Anyway, I am writing a book as a coping mechanism. As a learning tool. A way that I can still learn from my dad without him being here. I find that pretty rad. There is something powerful about yearning to keep someone's legacy alive. To keep there presence felt. It's at times peaceful and at times stormy. I'm hoping that by this book that I am writing, that I will continue to learn life lessons from my dad. He may not be here physically but I believe it is important to continue searching for knowledge.
I think that we all have a specific reason as to what our "job" here on earth is and as our life goes on we find out what that job is. At a young age you think it is easy to figure out what you want to do. You tell yourself you want to be the first woman President, you want to sail the ocean, become an astronaut or a doctor. Then... life happens. You go to school and realize you're not interested in what you thought you would be. You learn that you may not want to be in school for 10+ years, or maybe you just don't want to go to school at all.
My dreams change on the daily. However, the biggest dream I have in life is to help change peoples life in a positive way. This dream has remained. The reason I was put on this earth, my job, is to serve people. To help them. Inspire them. Motivate them, in some way. That is why I am writing a book. To help me, help you and anyone who may need some guidance on what it is to do when you lose people and still want to conquer life.
I may be young. I may not have all the knowledge in the world. I may be naive at times. I may be a woman but I am still mighty.
