This is how my world shows up for me.
I listen to the clues.
“So much to tell you”
So much to tell you - this whisper grows louder and I remember it’s a book I read as a child. Written by John Marsden.
But I also recognise it’s a clue. A clue for my own journey. It’s time for me to write my book, finally. Here I’ve been thinking it will be a book about my family and my ancestors.
I’ve been holding back and realise this book is actually for me to write about my own life. I really do have so much to tell you.
Why have I been holding back? Because I thought it would need to be a non fiction. I’d run out of things to say?
I have so much to tell you because I want you to be better than me. I want you to have the things I’ve only learnt about over time on my own.
You don’t have to do things on your own.
I want to encourage you to read. A lot. But pick up books for inspiration and creativity. The more you read the more you will realise you are learning not just about the story in the book, but the story of your own life and you’re learning more and more about yourself through learning about others.
This is for you my beautiful children and beyond you this is for you, world. Be great in the world meaning don’t be stopped, be the change you want to see.
Hi my name is Angela. I have loved writing since I was able to hold a pencil in my hand. I soon learnt I had a gift of connecting with my ancestors through writing before my 30th birthday.
