E is for Energy

Over years, I was always lacking energy. Mostly it was physical energy that was missing. For some strange reason it was fainting in a supermarket (I had very very bad nausea and had a hard time drinking and eating in the beginning) during my pregnancy was what finally gave my physical energy a boost. I have never had so much physical strength before, as I have since being a mother. Sometimes I lacked the energy to get up, to live properly, to be creative, to be myself.

With this blog I started to make use of my creative energy, channel it and use it to create, to be organised, to define my priorities, the creative and those that aren’t. Writing over the past year, has helped me and still helps me cope with my mother’s illness and her recent death. Lately, carrying my mother’s message in my heart, I am letting that creative energy be a priority.

But when it comes to creative energy there is a fellow blogger who I have to thank. When Gulara Vincent asked me to be a guest for her series The Story Behind the Story, I shone light on the reasons behind why I write, and I felt my energies liberated.

During the month of April, I am participating in the A to Z Challenge, my theme is authenticity and eclecticism, which in my book go hand in hand.
