Keeping it Real...
Welcome! No matter how you found this, God knew you'd be here today. May you absorb the message He has for you. In 2011 I shared through my writing, today I've learned there is more to me than just writing. I have the energy and passion to share with others. Sometimes through Facebook live and others with my blog and most importantly, I've learned my passion to cook and bake is a vessel to share my writing and live presentations, while glorifying God in the process. I just needed to let go, and follow His lead.
Last night my daughter and I watched "Julie and Julia". I've seen the movie before and each time I laugh, cry, reflect, and am inspired when it ends. Have you seen this movie?
It's about a women who is unsure of what she will do with her life so her husband suggests she write a blog. Once you make the decision to blog (online journaling), you must decide on what to write about. She chooses to blog about cooking and sets a lofty goal to cook an entire Julia Child's cookbook in one year, and blog about it.
She doesn't write to build an audience. She doesn't write to establish a platform. She doesn't write to impress people. So why does she dedicate time, tears, and words to blogging? This is an easy answer...
She blogs to keep a daily writing regimen.
She blogs to maintain her timeline to reach a personal goal.
She blogs whether anyone reads it or not because she enjoys what she is doing.
She blogs to log a love for her husband, food, and their marriage.
She blogs because she loves to write.
She blogs because it gives her an outlet.
What happens in the end? She gets her first comment, from her Mom. This gives her encouragement to keep moving forward - mind you, it was to prove her mother wrong at this point in the movie but as the movie and Julie's journey to cook and blog her way through Julia Child's cookbook...her mother's attitude changes too.
This is a movie about food, writing, marriage, and relationships. I highly recommend it. There is a book also. We've yet to read the book but we found a copy at the thrift store awhile back, so it's in the house and waiting for us to enjoy.
A meltdown or two (or more, lol) might necessary BUT
