i'm not a writer

When things get hectic in my life, I don't sit down at the computer and write it out. I don't carve out "me time" to blog, or make notes about things to write about, or any of that.

If life is busy throwing lemons at me and my family, I'm busy catching them and squeezing the crap out of them, not here posting the lemonade recipe.

I wish I had that need to write, that feeling of knowing that if I just sit down at my computer and tap out my thoughts I will find a release, or a new perspective.

Doldrums seem to stifle me.

Don't be confused, I haven't been totally uninspired. My darlings at home make me laugh and feel joyful every day, and so that's where I put my focus. I love my moments with my little family, more than ever when the outside world is rainy and gray.

When the going gets tough, this tough guy here just hunkers down.

Tension steals my words.

So I'm not a writer, but I'm okay with that.


  1. oh honey, it's okay not to be a writer. i love writing, i went to school to focus on writing, but i don't really consider myself a writer. but it is an amazing release. for me. i hope you're well. i hope you're squeezing the crap out of those damn lemons and stomping all over them. xoxo

  2. Thanks! I can and do enjoy writing, it's just not a passion of mine like I once thought it was!

    I'm so glad you're doing it and loving it! :)

  3. You lie because that was one of the most awesome pieces I've read in a while.

  4. I look forward to the words that come out of you so call it what you will the label is the only word that doesn't matter.

  5. I second all the above comments! I love hearing from you whenever you can get a chance to post. God knows it is hard writing when you have a family to take care of... among all the other stuff!

  6. I think you are - and I don't think it has to be defined by how often or much you do it. You are good at what you do - and you love it. <3
