Listen to your Heart

Hello friends and writers!

For this month's Insecure Writer Support Group post, I am encouraging you all to keep going.
  • Many things in life get in the way of our dreams and goals.
  • And sometimes things come up that force us to change > direction <.
  • But these ObStAcLeS, these tragedies, these seemingly INSURMOUNTABLE difficulties only make us stronger!
  • We don't always know what's best for us. And having to work for what we want makes the achieving that much sweeter.
  • So keep going, and soon you will say - I did it! I overcame! I reached and strived and didn't quit and I made it!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you leave a little more determined!

And if you can come back Friday, I'll have my first guest post of the year - Brinda Berry!

A nice inspirational ra-ra-ra this morning! Thank you.

I've decided this year to strive and keep going toward a few goals I decided to set. Hopefully, life doesn't get in the way too much *wink* and distract me!

Yes tragedies make you stronger, as long as they don't kill you in many cases they seem more than likely to.
But yes, I am leaving more determined.
Thank you!!!

Nissa Annakindt said...

I think it's the obstacles in my life that have contributed the most to my abilities as a writer. If everything were all so perfect, what would I have to write about?

Cynthia said...

That's a very motivational cheer, Tara. Tough times can be tough, but in them, sometimes I can find inspiration and motivation to write.

Michelle Wallace said...

Thanks for this boost of inspiration, Tara!
And I'm listening to my heart... closely...

Camila Rafaela Felippi said...

We always have to follow our hearts. Sometimes I already try to don't follow because of the others, but it's not good, just to hurt :/

Have a good week! :D

I love this encouraging and colorful reminder. I was really late this month with IWSG.

Your post reminds me of those scrapbook pages I used to make out of magazines back in the day.

Thanks for the dose of determinations!
