Good Morning Loves.

I’ve started or joined a few things this morning…

First, I’ve joined the Trust30 community that I was introduced to through a friend’s blog that I follow here

 #Trust30 is an online initiative and 30-day writing challenge that encourages you to look within and trust yourself. Use this as an opportunity to reflect on your now, and to create direction for your future. 30 prompts from inspiring thought-leaders will guide you on your writing journey. Sign up below to receive the prompts by email. If you like this pledge, check out reverb10, it’s inspiring.

Secondly…I’ve set up a BlogFrog Community. Check out the link on the right sidebar, it looks fun!

Now to Day 7 of #TRUST 30…

Day 7 #Trust 30 Writing Challenge

Dare to be bold …by Matt Cheuvront

Our arts, our occupations, our marriages, our religion, we have not
chosen, but society has chosen for us. We are parlour soldiers. We shun the
rugged battle of fate, where strength is born. –
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Today, let’s take a step away from rational thought and dare to be bold.
What’s one thing you’ve always wanted to accomplish but have been afraid to
pursue? Write it down. Also write down the obstacles in your way of reaching
your goal. Finally, write down a tangible plan to overcome each obstacle.

The only thing left is to, you know, actually go make it happen. What are you
waiting for?

Welcome to “Fear of Success 101″

What is the one thing, BOLD thing, I have always wanted to accomplish, and been afraid to pursue????

Uhhhhh….becoming a REAL Writer

My fears…not necessarily in this order…

1. am i good enough?

2. am i interesting enough?

3. what if I succeed????

It is the “what if” more than the “am I’s” that stops me in my tracks! If I succeed it would radically change my way of life. It would add to my vast list of responsibility. I might have to meet deadlines! I might have to meet people.

I Might be a SUCCESS!!!

 Do I really want this????

For as long as I can remember I have wanted, no I was compelled to write. Put down on that crisp white, college ruled note paper (no such thing as PC’s when I began this dream) my life, my experiences, my thoughts, my fears and dreams…ALL of it…for ALL to read.

Can I really do this?

I blog, regularly, sans writers block. I write, or I should say, I have written for for the most modest of incomes.

I have been complemented…my blogs and articles have STATS…

IF I AM HONEST…my only obsticle is myself…my FEAR that I would succeed. And OH! the unknown future that holds. I am afraid I must admit that on many a day that paralyzes me! And yet…I find that sad. How is it I can reassure a friend that they should BOLDLY pursue a dream, while simultaneously being frozen by my own???


A tangible plan to overcome this…fear…

Is already in motion.

I blog…I write…inspired by those I follow. Inspired by writing prompts like #Trust30…GypsyMama and others…

I write and chronicle and blog and journal and read and seek….

I Write.

And one day….I will accept that I am a WRITER, not just profess it…

Welcome, I'm Andrea ... HOPEannFAITH ... I write and take pictures as a way of expression. These are gifts given by a loving and indulgent Father, to a headstrong and stubborn daughter, with much to say. A semi-retired social worker/secretary, I now call myself a writer. I've published one internet article and written many blog posts. However, publishing does not make one a writer, anymore than taking a box camera to the park makes one a photographer. What makes one who and what they are? Well God for one ... formed me before the foundations of this world (Psalm 139); and many, many years after putting away my passion for wordsmithing and picture taking He gave it back ... in droves. I am a culmination of my choices and experiences. It is here that my experiences color the world in print and color. It is my goal to reach just one soul a day with love ... encouragement ... understanding or just letting that soul know that they are not alone where they are today. This is about creating ~ all of it. Creating a HOLY and SACRED place where the ugly truth can be healed and the beauty of a moment or a tear can brighten a day for the experience. Why HOPEannFAITH? Hopeannfaith is my inner child, and she is maturing, as she should have done all along. She is learning all about how Faith fulfills Hope. She is learning how to live. HOPEannFAITH ~ the wonder twins all wrapped up in one, me. These are my Journey Journals ~ written and visual. I welcome your company. I welcome your friendships. My Journey is in the light ~ although I have and will share the shadowy corners and the dark ~ so you know that you are never alone there. If we hold hands in the dark, and we walk, side by side, through the shadow, we will reach the Light together. In relationship with one another and with the Light. Blessings.

  1. “Think positively on purpose.” I love it! Congrats on taking the Trust30 Challenge!

  2. This is great response to today’s challenge! I do see how we are similar in our thoughts. I also have been saying I’m going to write a book for years now haha! My issue is just plain writers block there – I have no idea what to write and write ENOUGH of to get a book! I think your writing is fabulous and I’ll definitely be in line for a signed copy once you get that book out! ❤
