While going through my muck (my time in ugh!land), there is something that I already knew but had come to realize, that I never should have stopped writing.
I can’t explain why I completely shut down other than another thing I have come to understand. I’m drained. I believe that it is more than just a matter of months, but quite possibly a matter of years that is the cause.
It just seems no matter what I do to move forward, I keep getting knocked back down. Now I know that it’s not supposed to be a bed of roses all the time, but come on…it seems a constant barrage. Mind boggling. But I somehow manage to stay above water to avoid drowning.
Then I open my mail to find that someone else has shown kindness.
I was recently awarded a Creative Blog Award from Becca Givens. I must apologize to Becca for me taking so long to accept and share the award which I did here.
And then there’s Promising Poets’ Parking Lot showing appreciation with this award.
