The other night, I was thinking about something- what do I really want to do? Why do I want to be a writer?
The obvious answer is that I love to tell stories. I love being able to create worlds, characters, and situations and blend them all together to create a story. It's a deep passion that I've had as long as I can remember.
But there's a deeper reason why I want to be a writer- I want to be a positive influence on the world.
I want to write stories, inspire people (including myself), gain a voice, and help create a better future for our world.
My morals are (in no particular order):
• equality for all
-not being judged based on your gender, ethnicity, orientation, religion, political beliefs, etc.
• freedom for all
-to achieve your dreams
-to do what you love
-to be who you are
-to have opportunities
-for each other
-for our planet and environment
-for children and the future they have
-for all; smart people make smart choices, so good education would solve lots of the world's problems
-creating a passion for learning in our children
-self-learning and betterment
-self-evolution and continuing to strive for understanding of the human experience
• working together
-understanding each other
-helping those in need when we have no obligation to
By no means am I anywhere near perfect, but I want to continually make myself a better person. The person I want to be is one that doesn't think about giving, just gives; doesn't worry about possessions, but about people; doesn't care about impressing those more fortunate than her, but helping those who are less fortunate; doesn't judge or criticize others, just loves them for who they are.
Who do you really want to be? Are you on your way to becoming that person?
p.s.- don't forget that all month long, proceeds from book sales will be going to Susan G. Komen and St. Jude's Children's Hospital to help fight cancer: The list of books and stories that will help cancer research and treatment is here.
