Too long of a break

Wow. Just wow.  Its been a while since I have written anything.  I honestly don’t even want to look at the date of my last post.  I can say that life definitely got in the way.  Being a mom, wife, and a full-time student is exhausting.  But I honestly think that writing and having my work constantly critiqued by professors hurt me more than anything.  I have never been able to take criticism positively.  I know… professors are trying to help make a student better. I tell myself that constantly. But the little spawn that sits on my shoulder everyday tells me otherwise and I took that “advice” as a personal attack and I began to doubt my writing.  This doubt in myself is what led me to stop writing completely.  I just kept telling myself I can’t do this. I’m a joke. Enough.  I know I’m never going to be the best writer. I still don’t know where I’m going to work, or what I want to be when I grow up. (I’m 32). But I know I can get a little better each day.  So this is my comeback. (That sounded so corny) But writing brings me so much joy and I know that even if I do a little bit each day I will be happy with myself. So this is my little bit for today.  Maybe I’ll be able to write something again later.
