Last year, I felt like I’d forgotten how to write. Last month, I realized that wasn’t the case. Still, I had lost momentum. I let other things take up my time and attention. In that process, I thought about writing, but never actually got around to it. Here and there, I would write a reply or comment on what someone else had written, but that helped to clarify their ideas, not my own.

I’m nowhere near where I want to be now, but I can tell I’m moving in the right direction. Writing here has helped me rediscover something I thought I’d lost. This simple act of writing has helped me realize I can take small steps and work toward a number of things I want to accomplish.

I’ve long had the vision to see what I was going for. Now I see how I can take steps, just a few at a time, to work toward getting there.
