Why this blog began

The other day a dear friend raised the question of why I did not have a blog.  It was a reasonable question.  She knows I write daily, have achieved some of my life dreams and that I enjoy discussing philosophies on living an intentional life.

Yet this is the first time I am sharing my writing.  Despite a life as busy as everyone else, my sanity and life progression require me to write daily.  So why not start a blog. See if what I have to say resonates with anyone else.

I asked her what she would like to read in a blog authored by myself. 

Her answer “Life, manifesting dreams, balancing life with goals, women and finances”.

How she surprised me. Her response closely mirrors the issues that rise to the surface of my daily thoughts. We would all be lucky to have a friend who knows and believes in us like she does. 

So M, here it begins.

    I found your site while looking for someplace else. It was a happy accident. I too, am a writer and spend most of my time doing just that. l also have the clutter of too many books and things I do not need. I just hate to take the time away from my writing to do much about it. I have recently gone through my clothes and given a great deal of them to someone who needs them. Books, however, well lets just say I have a harder time parting with them. But believe me, I have enough to start a small library! The good news here is your 15 minute plan might just save me.
    I have also given it some thought to start my own blog. Like you, several friends have suggested it to me. Perhaps I could be helpful to others in doing so, like you have. Thank you!

      Thank you for your kind words. I’ve been busy enacting some life changes around here and will be posting a lot more in the coming weeks.
      Books are definitely a hard one to declutter. I find the most critical thought to keep in mind when parting with books is to only keep those that inspire me, and those I haven’t yet read! This way, the books have a chance to find the person they can inspire.
      Has the 15 minute plan helped?

  2. You have a good friend!
