I have felt so lost

Keywords: me

Wondering where do I go next ? What do I want to do ? What am I good at (feels like nothing)? Can I do something? Anything ? All these different questions and I have not one answer. I have felt so empty and so unsuccessful this past year. My husband and kids are wonderful , but I want to be better for them . Honestly I feel if I’m successful in whatever I can do , I can fine some kind of inner peace and finally be the mom I’m trying so desperately to be. So I came here. To start something new, something different, something I enjoy. However I am a little nervous 💜 wish me luck in finding , ME 💜💗

I can share with you all the things I’ve learned, not only during my quiet times with God, but also other lessons God is teaching me everyday

I’m a Christian and my relationship with God is something that I value immensely. When I started this blog, it was quite the opposite. Back in 2018, I struggled a lot with my faith. I questioned it, I felt constrained by it, bored by it and sometimes angered by it. At one point, I told my mum that I sometimes didn’t want to call myself a Christian anymore.

Someone is connecting with what I share

Would it be nice to get paid for connecting my writing with others? Of course! I’m not going to lie that it would be wonderful to have even a small income from my writing But I refuse to do so by any means than what feels most authentic to me. I could easily do some free-lance article and blog writing. I’ve sold one article in the past, in fact. But I can’t be bothered to write about crap that doesn’t mean anything to me, even if that means bringing in some cash. I’ve been there and done that and I don’t want to kill the joy that writing brings to me for the sake of a few dollars.

Please join me on my journey to share my love of books and reading

I want to start by sharing a little about myself. My name is Ashley and I am 26 years old. Books are a huge part of my life. I even have a book related tattoo. I am currently finishing up my last semester of college and hope to pursue a career in book publishing in the area of marketing! I am hoping to publish children’s and young adult novels mostly.
