on the power of showing up

note: I wrote this post in April of 2019 (pre-COVID). It's been sitting in my drafts for quite a while, but I think it's time for it to see the light of day. It's been helpful for me to reread over the past few months, especially as I continue to try to make an effort to write, and I hope it can be helpful to you, too. i got an invite to a writers' group a few months ago, and i had never felt like more of a fraud in my life. it had been months, if not years, since i'd felt like a writer. the proverbial well of words in my heart had dried up, it seemed, and i wasn't sure if it was ever coming back. i agreed to go out of a sense of helplessness—i'd identified as a writer ever since i could remember. if i'm not a writer, who am i?  i told myself that it was important to show up and act like a writer even when i didn't feel like one, because even though i hadn't been writing, i reassured myself, i still was a writer. but sometimes the words f

My family has made a decision to cut back on electronics... you can read about it here. Surprisingly enough, I think this is good for my family in many ways. Already today, my siblings and I have interacted a lot more, and have made some great memories! I will learn to manage my time better. I also think that the computer was slowly wrapping its pixelated talons around my life, and that I needed to get it off!

Unfortunately, replying to comments will probably suffer, too, as much as I wish it won't. Anyway, please understand that since my time is now limited, I'm not ignoring you, I'm just not able to respond, although I do read every single comment.

I may be able to email some of my close friends, if you would like... I will try to respond to those as frequently as I can.

Blessings,
~Kylie
