Find the Beauty

Join us on Mondays at Jo Knowles blog for Monday Morning Warm-Ups


This morning Jo challenged us to "Find the beauty in our writing." I find so much beauty in beginnings...maybe that's why I love mornings so much. It's the beginning of a new day. I love beginnings. I'm good at beginnings and that's why I love that Jo asked us to focus on finding the beauty now...I'm filled with hope and anticipation for this writing camp. I feel invincible. "I can do anything" feelings are leaking out everywhere...but I'm old enough and wise enough to know that these feelings are fleeting. Doubts and fear will soon replace them and that's why I'm going to focus on the beauty today. I'll return here to find encouragement for my gloom and motivation to go on when I want to quit. 

Beauty means discovering joy and peace and grace. I've been searching for my story for a long time and I feel like I found a beginning to a story that needs to be told. My story will be about sixth graders and super powers and bullies and showing grace to others and empathy. And that's all I know right now.  
Bella beginning her day...

I'm grateful to be nudged to 
find beauty today...

Beauty is in beginnings, 
early mornings and
first lines. 

I also find beauty in blogging! This is my 150th post! Woo Hoo!

  1. I love beginnings, too! I'm always energized and ready to go at the start of something. Your story beginning sounds terrific and I love "Beauty is in beginnings, early mornings and first lines."
