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

{Day 27} And A Minorly New Design

Uh, well... I didn't MEAN to redo my blog template. But I did.

I didn't redo too much. I left the header the same; but redid the background and a couple other things.



So, what do you think? :) I like it... although I'm not sure I'm QUITE satisfied. I'm not sure if I like the sidebar titles or not. Your thoughts?

And now...

Day 27: A Physical Feature I Love

Well, I'm going to have to be unoriginal and say... I love eyes.

Whoops. Wrong picture.
Oops. Still not right.
That's NOT it.
Uh, well, that works...

Another thing I notice about people is their hands.

I don't know why, but I like looking at hands; they're all so different and unique, just like people.

Before I go, I have to link to a post that really made my day. Bleah is one of my favorite bloggers, and this post of hers was so beautiful and right on. Check it out: Learning to Fall.

I can't believe this is the last day of the challenge! I'll see you guys again tomorrow... for now, I'll just watch the snow swirl outside my window. Spring, when shall you arrive?


  1. I'm totally LOVIN' your new background!!! It's very pretty. (:
    Ha, I think pretty much every blogger did eyes! So it's cool that you did hands as well.

    *sighs with you* Yes, when shall Spring come? I'm getting rather impatient!


  2. Your new background is very snazzy ;)
    And I love that cat picture! Ooooh la la

  3. Lovely new design, Sky! =D
    I love eyes--everyone has a unique pair. =)
    Oooh, hands. Another good one--especially if they have unique marks. Like where a pencil rubs on their finger, tan line from a ring, or calluses on their fingertips from playing guitar just to name a few. =D

  4. Love this design- the colors are great!

  5. ooh, it's pretty! I never thought about hands much, mine are always cruddy from scratches and stuff... I'm very accident prone :)

  6. Oooh, I think I like this new blog design! Very cute!

    haha, I like your "eyes" pictures. They're great. ;)

  7. I like the new design! hehe, you make me laugh out loud girl!
