So, first of all, HAPPY JULY! I’m so excited for this month. Awesome things are happening and who doesn’t love summer?! Although, I just wish it would stop raining!
Today marks the day, that I turned freelyfatima.wordpress.com into FreelyFatima.com
My own sanctuary. A place that I can call my own. I was so excited when I launched this blog, I had all of these ‘brilliant’ ideas, topics, and thoughts. And then, life took a major turn and I stopped writing. There was sickness in my family, and I experienced a very precious loss of my own…not everything was bad. I got a new job, PASSED my social work licensing exam, my husband and I put an offer in our first house(!!! Stay tuned), my hubby has accepted his call to ministry and started grad school, among so many other great things!
Needless to say my life has been a whirlwind this year! Each day that went by, I would feel guilty not only with this venture but other business opportunities that I was pursuing that I am truly passionate about. I would beat myself up, feel guilty about not doing enough..just a lot of negative self talk. BUT! Something in me would keep checking to see if people were still reading my posts..and they were! In fact, my views have been consistent each month since February when I put my last post up.
I got an email from my hosting site like everyday last week saying “renew your domain, it’s going to expire.” I waited until the very last day, and even then this little voice inside said, “Don’t renew it, you haven’t written a blog post in 5 months, stop playing yourself.” But then, I heard a BIGGER voice say, “For I know the plans I have for you…”
This blog and my business venture with one of my best friends was birthed from a vision bigger than my own. I don’t have all the answers, I don’t know what will come of it, but I know that I have just got. to keep. going….! My dreams seem so grandiose sometimes, but I just believe that with God ALL things are possible.
If you can’t stop thinking about it, don’t stop working for it!
So I’m back. Taking it one day at a time. 🙂
