Freedom Nudge

Do you feel constrained by your current situation, relationship, or mindset? Do you feel confined by your circumstances, habits, or fears? Sometimes life closes in on you slowly, and you don’t realize that there is an issue until you are trapped. Other times, life implodes around you. Either way, no need to surrender, you are empowered. Your soul needs to be free. Acknowledge the nature of your confines, and then use your wit, wisdom, and wonder to eliminate blocks and dismantle your constraints. Don’t be discouraged if you stumble or fall as you get started. When you fall, it is only because you are trying your hardest. Falling is a sign of courage, and the reward for courage is freedom.

  1. Thank you for this. I was feeling so discouraged right now it’s sad. But you know I just I have to find a better way out. I appreciate this post. 💕
    So much love for you Julie

      1. When you think about it, this is a good reason to assess your life and the path you are taking on a regular basis. The mind is so good at forgetting all your good intentions!

  2. I feel like I’m stuck in a dungeon, with no way out, as a failing author. I feel I need lots of money to fix that, and I can’t make lots of money unless I get published well. It’s not a good feeling to know, there’s not a lot I can do to heal my situation. Still, I keep on trying.

    Great post, Julie.

    1. I understand self publishing is getting easier and cheaper, but I have no experience with that. You continually produce great content. May the best next steps become obvious to you at the perfect time. I’ll keep sending good vibes to you!!!

      1. Hello Wendy, thank you so much for the kind comments and the invitation. I don’t have a project that I can set up and do in time for this one. Is there another before the main thing? If so I’d consider joining you for that one.

        1. No. Camp runs in April and July, then the big NaNoWriMo event in November. You don’t really need a big project for Camp. One friend is using it to edit a chapter a day of her book. I used it last time for general blogs and website content, 1 hr a day. Camp is more about the habit of writing.
          Let me know if you do the big event in November – we can be friends! 💕

          1. I see, okay. Maybe I might use November as a way to pick up the story I’d begun before having my passion and confidence ripped out by bad reviews.

            And we are friends, it’ll be nice to work with you though.

            1. Great idea! I give November NaNo a go each year, but have NOOOOO chance of getting to 50k words! It’s such a busy month for work, and I usually write non-fiction (but not always), which does not lend itself well to pantsing. But whatever I manage is infinitely more than I would have done otherwise, and I get to support and hang out with my writing friends. All good!
              Looking forward to having you along for the ride! 😃

                1. Not for me. It doesn’t suit the way I research and write. I’d need to be writing full time for the whole month, and I don’t want to do that. I managed 20k last year, but in my hurry to get words down, my structure fell apart. That’s what I want to fix at Camp in July.

                  1. I don’t think it’s possible to bash out any full-sized book in a month without making a complete mess of it, myself. I did all my Workhouse Mysteries over 3 month periods, and they’re were a mess even then.
