I forgot to share something very exciting that happened to me a few months ago. I was chosen to be a monthly contributor on another blog, Over the Big Moon. No biggie, right? A million people have blogs and even more are professional writers themselves. But those people aren’t me. I am just Sara. The Sara who, previously, would not have given anything a try that might result in rejection.
But I did try this time. My Step-Mom asked me how I was able to go out of my comfort zone in regards to applying for the spot. As crazy as it sounds, I practiced what I was sharing here on First You Must Begin. I have all this knowledge of what I should be doing, but, like many others, I struggle to implement those things at times. However, I felt like I’d be a hypocrite if I wrote all these suggestions and did none of it myself. So, I did it! I applied. Much to my surprise, I was chosen!
I wrote a post here on First You Must Begin back in September titled Is Timing Everything?, which was inspired by the chain of events that led me to this opportunity to be a blog contributor. The experiences, both good and bad, that have afforded me multiple writing opportunities has humbled me. Every step that I took in the right direction has brought me to this time in my life where I’m learning to believe in myself more fully. It’s such a rewarding feeling.
My posts go live on Over The Big Moon every third Sunday. I’m excited to share that this month’s contribution is about the importance of Journaling Your Journey.
I hope you’ll enjoy reading these additional posts and perusing Over The Big Moon to see all their fun ideas!
