So at the end of June, I decided to take the plunge and create another space for my words, another platform where I could share my heart with others. I have joined a few writing groups and found that pretty much every writer had a Facebook page for their work, which, embarrassingly enough, I had no idea was even a thing. Because, to be completely honest, I haven’t had much of a clue of what I’m doing this whole time.
I figured that if I want to make this a thing, though, I have to really do it. I need to give it my best effort. So here we are, a few months down the road from that decision, and I’m entirely overwhelmed.
The Facebook world has been pretty wild and crazy, and there was certainly a learning curve, but I’m finally getting the hang of it. And I love it. It’s been such a blessing to have a space where I can easily share my thoughts, have conversations with my readers, and my words have the ability to spread a bit farther than I ever could’ve pushed them on my own.
All of this to say: I’ve been completely neglecting this space.
I’m constantly reminded of my limitations, of the fact that there’s really so little of me to go around and do all the things that must be done. Which leaves minimal time for the things I want to do. I’ve pretty heavily devoted myself to getting my Facebook page up and running, and it hasn’t left much in the well to pour out here.
I’m not quite sure how I feel about it. Do I just start writing there and kind of let this place go? Do I write some things there and some things here? Do I make this space something different, something completely unique? I haven’t a clue.
But I do know that I’m absolutely loving this journey. I do know that I’m thrilled to be connecting with so many women just longing to be seen and heard and understood, to know that they’re not alone. And it brings my heart such joy to know that my words are spreading to people that need them.
So I’m not quite sure what I’ll end up doing, but I’ll figure it out. I have time, so I’m going to take it. I’m not going to rush this thing.
If you’re at all interested in seeing what I’ve been up to these past few months, I’d love for you to follow along over at Kisses From Boys with Krista Ward. It’s turned into quite the beautiful community, if I do say so myself.
Thank you for your graciousness as I stumble my way through all of this. And, as always, thank you for reading my words. I couldn’t do it without you.
