Wednesday, October 2, 2013


Well today is the first Wednesday of October already!  I can't believe it.  That means it is time for the Insecure Writer's Support Group, hosted by Alex Cavanaugh.

I don't want to be a big downer, but I have felt quite insecure these past few weeks...months.  I don't even really know why, other than it seems like my life just keeps getting crazier and crazier and I hardly have time to sleep let alone sit down to write something decent.

But sometimes I wonder what I bring.  Do I have anything unique to say that hasn't already been said by a million other writers?  I'm not sure. I'd like to use my love of writing for something good, to inspire or help others.  But how?  I feel like I don't know enough.

Yesterday, I was reading a book by Karen Armstrong about Buddha.  It said that every day on his search for enlightenment, he would sit and direct the feeling of love to every corner of the Earth, sowing the seeds of friendship to every single living thing, even his enemies.

I thought that was wonderful.  Maybe sending love and support is enough.  Maybe one comment I make can help someone's day be a little brighter.  And the IWSG is such a great way for all of us to send even just a little love and support all around the globe.  Thanks Alex for creating a platform for us to help each other!

So here is my little bit of love that I'm sending to all of you! (I'm closing my eyes and concentrating so I can get it to each and every one of you!)  I hope your week is full of good thoughts.

Have a great day!!!

  1. One comment can make a difference! We don't know where someone is at in life or what our one comment can do to change that. So we support and encourage everyone.

  2. I'm sorry you've been feeling down. I've definitely been there and this group sure does help when it comes to encouragement and support. Sending a hug back to you!

  3. You have a lot to offer, Kathy. You have one of the most upbeat blogs and you're always supportive!

  4. Just because you're saying something that's been said before, doesn't mean it's still not worth saying.

    A lot of us know how you feel and can least, I know I sure can.

    Things will brighten soon :)

  5. My life has been super crazy too. You inspired me to stop and meditate and send out good energy to everyone.

    New follower.

  6. It's sometimes easier to get stuck in feeling down than climbing out of it and trying to turn it around. Having someone reach out and send happy thoughts is definitely a boost. I always try to remember to smile throughout my day at people. You never know who's day you may brighten.
    I'm sending a smile your way. Hope things get better!
