“How to be a writer!” (9.17.17)

Patricia Bokowski, it’s as if, when moving from point A to point B in your life โ€” from sickness to health, poverty to wealth, whatever – at some point in the journey, arriving at point B becomes inevitable, a sure thing. However, at no point in your journey is this physically verifiable โ€” until you reach point B.
 
The point being (yuck, yuck), you may have already crossed that line. But you’ll never know it, unless you see the journey through.

“Stop asking people who have never been where you are going for directions.” – NineFrogs

There are many authors out there in the world.

Writing many beautiful.

Words.

Marianne Williamson is one of them.

I’ve had this poem posted on the back of my office door for years now.

And I try to  make sure I read it at least once a week.  

To remind myself of what a badass I can be (you too).๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

I think for many people.

Myself included.

Sometimes.

We back down from doing something.

Because we are actually afraid of shining to bright.

Afraid of using our power.

So.

We.

Really.

Are.

Afraid.

Of.

Our.

Light.

Not.

Our.

Dark.

Well, no more! 

I’m giving myself.

And you.

Permission to shine like a fu*king Rock Star๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

Here it is:

Who am I to be:

Brilliant.

Gorgeous.

Talented.

Fabulous.

Writing our way to our fairytale.

Think about that?

It is so true.

That is the way many of us were brought up.

I know I was.

Being:

Brilliant.

Gorgeous.

Talented.

Fabulous.

Was for ‘special’ people.๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

People who ‘had something’.๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

And I was most definitely NOT one of them.

Because.

That is what I was told. 

Could I ever write something so special?

Write something so beautiful?

Never.

Because.

I.

Was.

Told.

I.

Couldn’t.

Write.

It wasn’t until later in life I learned that wasn’t true.

We all have it in us.

Not just some.

No.

All.

See.

“Playing small does not serve the world.” ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

I love that so much!

So.

If.

You.

Want.

To.

Be.

A.

Writer.

Keep writing ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ NineFrogs Daily QUOTE OF THE DAY:

When anyone refers to my business (NineFrogs) as a small business.

I am quick to correct them.

I don’t have a small business.

I have an international business.

And I work everyday at building it into an empire.

My NineFrogs Empire.

Writing blogs one day at a time!

Sure.

There are people who snicker whenever I say that.

But.

Secretly, they know I really am.

See.

I learned years back.

It’s just as easy to think BIG.

As it is to think small.

Might be a bit more work.

But.

That’s ok.

See.

I decided about five years.

That I was so ready for this.

I knew.

Exactly.

The direction I wanted to take my business.

I was no longer happy with playing small.

No.

The time had come to push the boundaries.

To see exactly how far I can take this thing.

And I have to tell you.

So far.

I’ve taken it pretty far from where I started in 2012.

The BIG lesson I’ve learned.

That I’ll share with you today.

I DON’T LET ANYONE TELL ME HOW FAR I CAN GO.๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

LIKE.

NO ONE.

I DON’T CARE WHO THEY ARE.

I DON’T CARE HOW SUCCESSFUL.

OR HOW MUCH MONEY THEY HAVE MADE.

The only person who can decide how far you can go is you!

And the only person who can tell you what you can do, is YOU!

YOU decide.

And I’m here to tell you.

You can do so much more than you think.

I currently have at least three new projects I’m working on.

Three things I never thought possible.

And here I am doing it.

How?

Because I told myself I could.

And I’m figuring out along the way.

You got this sis.

See.

Here’s the thing.

Maybe you didn’t catch my quote at the top of the page.

So.

For you.

I will.

Repeat it here:

“Stop asking people who have never been where you are going for directions.” – NineFrogs

No one has been where I am going๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

No one.

 

Imagine.

If we all lived our life this way.

Now that would be a revolution!

Don’t ever give up on a dream.

Because.

Someone.

Else.

Told.

You.

It.

Can’t.

Happen.

Only.

You.

Can.

Decide.

That.

So.

Again.

If.

You.

Want.

To.

Be.

A.

Writer.

How to be a writer๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ
