The Writing Journey

I am finding my awakened writing journey, one of the most amazing discoveries. I have realised I have always written to get my emotions on the page. I have journalled throughout key times in my life but had never given one moments thought as to why I was truely doing it, I just did it.

My decision to write a book came from many years of people hearing my life stories and saying “you ought to write a book” but I knew this was a pipe dream of mine. One that would never come to fruition.

One day the universe sent me a sign that I should write a book and that day was just a normal day, well not completely normal, I was learning reiki energy healing on that day, but none-the-less, nothing out of the ordinary in the grand scheme of Sarah’s crazy life.

Never ever did I realise the journey I would begin on my writing journey! The problem with me, well it is not a problem, perhaps a blessing, I have to give 150% to anything I do…. so I have started signing up to anything to do with writing. I have attended writing events, workshops, courses, and the speaker would refer to the audience as “authors”. I smirked to myself but grew to like this title…. author, yes, why not!

A World of Wellbeing & Writing Event I attended where I was referred to as an “author” ❤️

I am in the majority in the saboteur thinking pattern, “but I am not an author, who will buy my book?” but the further I travel down the writing rabbit hole the more confident I become that most that decide on these courses to write a book, have no clue where to start. I am confused. My problem is I do not know when to stop!

I have so much to say but fear I have no writing skills to write a book. Admittedly I did very well at school in English but I am no editor and would not have a clue how to make a book flow. I certainly have the content, far too much content!

I am excited by this new passion and I am throughly enjoying getting my thoughts out of my head. I truely hope you enjoy reading what I write. Any advise on finding a good editor would be most appreciated.

Choosing a Puppy

When I arrived at Edenshot Labradors amazing plot, Angela was already outside with all eight puppies. One came running over to me and started chewing my shoes. (it had a yellow collar) I had forgotten how sharp their little teeth are. Then one came over and started biting the back of my ankle. Note to self, I should have worn my muck boots! I thought perhaps yellow collar may be the one because he ran up to me first. I kept a good eye on him.

Angela put the females back in their stable bed and between the two of us we carried two pups each into the house out of the rain. They were given treats and I knelt on the floor with them, trying to get a sign that one was to be mine. Geoff recommended interacting and playing with them, I did and yellow collar and purple collar came and sat on my knee playing. I tapped my chest and gestured for one to come closer and purple collar was determined to get the closest to me. I then thought perhaps purple collar was to be mine. Angela told me at that point that it was purple collar that had pooped on me when I first met them.

I knew it was a choice between purple and yellow collar but which one? Angela gave them a raw bone from the butchers and purple collar bounded into the group of puppies, grabbed it and tottled off with this huge bone all to himself under the table. None of the others tried to take it back from him. I knew this was to be my puppy. He made me laugh. He was confident and mischievous.

He comes to his new home in a few weeks. 🤗 Wish me luck! Do you think he looks mischievous or like an angel?! Maybe he will be like me! 😇

Rediscovering Yourself

When life isn’t going quite the way we had planned, we could all do with a lovely friend to identify the rocky road and deliver us a little box of sunshine to help steer us back onto the not so rocky road.

If you know someone that is struggling, why not send them a ray of sunshine, you will make their day. Lots of Love.
