Over The Big Moon Contributor

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.

I’m only sorry that I’ve waited so long to share this news with our followers here.  It’s a little tricky to find specific past posts on Over The Big Moon, so I thought I would share the links for the previous posts here.  September was my first month contributing and I focused on the value we place on Values.  October’s post was about Facing Fears.  November, I shared the changes I made in my own life once I realized I was The Unlikely Perfectionist.  And in December, I felt the need to reflect on Having A Merciful Heart.

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!
