It feels like only yesterday that I was writing letters to people, and here we are again with another writing challenge prompt.
And honestly, since I’ve mostly been focused on travel content, it feels great writing something as casual as this again…like the good old days.
That’s why I decided to do this year’s writing challenge theme similar to the very first writing challenge I ever participated in, while, of course, incorporating something different.
Similar to my first challenge, I’m only providing one word or phrase, and it is up to all participating individuals to answer the topic in any way they understand it or want to answer it.
When it came to the topics, I struggled to figure out what I would find enjoyable to write about, especially if I considered my current thoughts and feelings.
I initially wanted to go on a completely new route, but after a while of putting together the topics, my headspace was not too enthusiastic about it, and my soul was already letting me know it didn’t feel content.
Eventually, I began jotting down things on my mind and shortened them to one-word or –phrase topics. I then decided that I didn’t want the topics to be all around the place, so I took similar words and phrases and began thinking about what I could connect them to.
I remembered we are in the Autumn season. This is the season I often associate with letting go of what is no longer serving us and being able to start new chapters in our lives. That it’s okay to start all over again.
Just like the trees, this season we are releasing old wounds, habits, and people so that we may make room for more growth, love, and peace.
My 2022 Writing Challenge theme is "Endings and Beginnings".
It’s okay to let go of who you were, the pain you’ve been holding on to, and the people who make you feel less than peaceful.
The strength for new beginnings is within us, and one way to reach them is to first, accept that you need to release some things, and second, release them.
It’s easier said than done, and it’s perfectly fine to take baby steps. Keep taking these baby steps, and you might start to notice that the weight in your heart and soul has gotten lighter and you feel a bounce in your steps.
This is your life – make it a well-lived one.
