When You Love to Write
Writing is my passion. I’ve enjoyed writing since I was a little girl, and always envisioned that someday I’d write a book. I’m now the author of my own self-published book: Anxious Mom, Anxious Child: A Mother’s Journey from Anxiety to Serenity.
DREAMS: There is something about them. I used to write about everything. I used to write about my dreams of the future, or about my days at school or the boy I was “in love” with. I also used to write poetic lines about my most intimate feelings, I’d hide and write about my happy moments and the not so happy ones.
Journaling is a wonderful practice, it helps you dump thoughts that you’ve been carrying around and when you are done, you feel a lot lighter. However, as years went by, journaling became a bit of the same, I wanted to write about one “big” idea, but I figured I didn’t have it yet. And since I didn’t have the “big” idea yet, I kept writing in my journals for years.
Inspiration comes and goes, the muses choose when to visit depending on their mood, or should I say: depending on MY mood? I knew the time would come when they’d visit and stay for a while, I didn’t know when that would happen. I just went with the flow.
It wasn’t until the message came clear to me on a winter morning not too long ago that I knew it was time to get serious about writing my book. Only then was I able to allow myself to be vulnerable enough and brave enough to write a story that truly represented what my message was about. From that moment on, and for weeks, I’d wake up at 3:45 a.m. or at 4:15 a.m. spontaneously. The nudge on my shoulder saying softly: “Escribe, Ada.” (Write, Ada).
I’m so proud to be able to share my experience and insights with the world. Visit my page on Amazon here and get your copy today!
