Today, I am writing out of my comfort zone. I have been thinking for a long time about sharing a personal poem, one that I did when I couldn’t fall asleep late at night, around one o’clock in the morning.
I had originally posted this article on Thursday, January 16th, but got anxious about posting it, as I kept asking myself if it was the right thing to do. After talking about it with a couple of friends, I have decided to repost because at the end of the day, this is who I am. There are many different parts of who I am, that I can’t change and won’t change, and the fact is – my articles may be helpful to others experiencing the same thing. And that is my goal with my writing, is to make a difference in theis world and help people realize that they are not alone…
Below is my story ...
It was one of those nights when my husband was up late watching XRP videos on YouTube. Back then, XRP (for me) was like an enemy! I had NO CLUE why it was SO important to him and why it was SO important to keep up to date with all the news?!
HOWEVER, over time, the more we talked, the more I understood and became interested in XRP, it has become one of my passions and now – here I am writing on Coil, a monetized platform! Writing articles has been one of my passions lately, even though my writing had to slow down the past few months due to other priorities.
But, the fact that there are so many people who share the same interests as me, who share either the same thoughts or very different thoughts altogether, is amazing!! It gives me drive to keep pushing forward, as my Coil Community friends encourage me. I appreciate their thoughts as I learn and soak it all in, as I continue to keep sharing my thoughts, in hopes that I do the same for them!
Here’s the thing. I think of myself as just a regular person living in a regular world. Striving to have a great day – every day – with my family, and the few friends I consider real friends.
And yet, I know that having a great day is not possible every. single. day. I know that there are going to be ups and downs. But hey – I can make the best of it, right?!
Lunches, dinner, laundry to do, clean the bathrooms, wash the floors. And don’t forget about making time to ask the kids about homework, how their day was, what’s new, “I love you’s”, hugs, and so on!
Do the grocery shopping, pay the bills. And don’t forget about taking a shower in the morning before the day starts, right? AND, making the bed, because when you start the day making your bed, it starts the day off with one of your first things accomplished! (At least for me, it does, and helps put me in a positive mood!).
The endless list of things to do that just seem to keep piling up…
Trust me, I know that I am not alone when it comes to parenting and dealing with day-to-day stresses, and so I guess maybe I’m just venting a little bit because let me tell you – it’s been one of those days!
So you ask what this has to do with “desires” and my poem…
I am a woman who has desires. Desires to live a fulfilling life with my husband and my family. Desires to travel the world. I hope for the day that they will have a cure for my vision loss, but in the meantime, I am going to fulfill my desires as much as I can. I am going to share my desires and just take it one day at a time.
Like every couple, we all have our moments; BUT, when couples find time for each other, that time should truly be cherished!
