Hello, all! My name is Kristen and this is my journey. A journey to what you may ask? A journey is defined in several ways, in my case I would say it is progress from one stage to the next. Hopefully, it will be my journey to success. I am on a journey to become not just a writer, but a published author. I have always enjoyed writing, and while most people would consider it a hobby, I consider it a passion. A passion, that I haven’t allowed myself to indulge in for a long time. I wish I could dedicate 100% of my time to completing my first book. Unfortunately, that is not an option.
With a full-time job and a family to care for, writing has been an aspect of my life that has been put on the back burner. I have decided though, that it is time to pursue my passion. It’s time to make my dream into a reality and become a published author. I have already started on my book, but I have a lot of work left to do. It is a fiction novel, packed full of romance and adventure. The biggest problem I’ve had thus far is finding the time to write. However, I know to complete my book, in the time frame I have given myself, I need to write 1000 words per day, or as close to it as I can get.
I am also on a weight loss journey. This is one that I have traveled before. It is one I have been successful at and one I have also failed at. Weight loss isn’t miracle science, it takes focus and dedication. It is a balance of eating healthy and exercise. I know what to do, I just need do it. It’s kind of like when my dental hygienist tells me I should floss more. Yes, I know I should, I even have a Waterpik Flosser, but I just don’t do it regularly enough.
I am on a journey to gain patience and understanding while living with a teenage boy. Having a 16-year-old son has made me realize that although I am a good mother, I don’t know as much about being a mother as I thought. Every day he finds a new way to test my patience and question my sanity. Can we make it through the next two years of high school?
Let’s just say I am on a life journey folks, I am trying to become the very best person I can be. I am on a search for self-fulfillment and enlightenment, exploring myself and new things. This blog will allow you to join me on my journey through everyday life, not only in the writing process but other aspects of my life as well. I’m excited about this journey and excited to have you join me!
