The Writing Bug

I have an unwavering, overwhelming, constant need to write.

I’ve had it since before I can remember.

When I was in fourth grade, my teacher entered a paper I wrote in a writing contest that I ended up winning. From that point forward, I was told my every English teacher that I should keep writing.

And this need to write hasn’t ceased… but my follow-through and actual time spent writing has.

I don’t blame anyone but myself, and relent my frustration toward one thing: technology.

So, I have some questions for you guys.

Do you feel guilty when you spend time consuming others’ creative content rather than creating yourself?

Do you push off “content creation” for relaxation? Or is content creation not on your radar?

Do you have goals and plans for your creative work? How do you prioritize those goals?

I have affirmation that part of my life’s work is meant to be in writing content that helps people. And while I don’t know exactly what that’s meant to look like, I simply keep trusting and walking in the plans God has for me.

Today was a day of errands all across the town.

I got my hair done for free by my beautiful friend Morgan to help her with her updo skills, went grocery shopping, and picked up my new glasses, all with the encouragements that make up #BellLetsTalk day ringing through my ears, while I thought, if these torturous illnesses exist and are people’s realities, we NEED to be talking about them.

And now I’m getting ready to do homework, but not without first sitting down to simply write.

And in the midst of confusion, of wondering more than ever “what the heck” I’m going to pursue in a career, and resting in Jesus, today of all days I know it’s ok to be confused, to be broken. It’s actually part of the calling.


“He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.”
 Ps.147:3

Welcome! Ever since I was a little girl I have wanted to own a blog, and I created this one to inspire others and help myself. I am a passionate twenty something-year old woman with a love of cooking, tap dancing, and meeting new people-- and of course, primarily an intention to die to my human self and seek God with my whole being. I will eat anything with peanut butter and love spontaneity. I aim to live life in submission to what Christ has for me. I'm currently studying Christian Theology and English at Wilfrid Laurier University in Ontario, Canada.
