For the past four years, I could not write as much as I would have liked to. My family moved into a new home. It was a crazy move and took a lot out of me. It seemed like there was always something that needed to be done around the house. I had no time to write. Writing a little here and there when I could. But, it wasn’t enough. I am a writer and I need to write.
Moving is a loss. You lose friends and people you care about. Right before we moved, my beloved Fred passed away. It was heartbreaking. I still miss him some four years later. All that and it took me three years to figure out a routine so I could have time to write every day.
I am happy to say. I am getting back into the routine of writing every day.
Writing Through the Soul Letting Go
Letting go is not the easiest thing for me to do. After much thought and many technical issues, I decided to let go of something important to my heart. After seven years, I decided it was time to let go of The Spiritual Mystic blog. I love writing spiritual articles. They are writing through my soul, after all. So, I will be moving the spiritual articles to this blog.
I had been thinking about doing this for three years. The Spiritual Mystic was on the blogging platform, Blogger. I can’t say I would recommend using the blogger platform to any blogger. Over the past 20 years, I have had many issues with them. I decided, I only want one blog for all of my writing and it had to be Writing Through the Soul.
Writing Through the Soul I Have Written More in January 2023 Than I Have In the Past Five Years
The end of 2022 and the beginning of this year were not so great for me. I had been having trouble blogging, and nothing seemed to work. My whole family ended up getting the flu right before Christmas. We did not even have a Christmas this year. We were all sick well into January. My husband’s car died on him, and he had to get a new one. I was sick and tired of not being able to do what I loved, to write daily. Things had to change for the better.
Being sick and tired of not being happy. Something had to be done about it. After almost five years of not writing, I wanted to write daily again. Missing writing so much, I had to figure out a way to do it. And I knew it was time to say goodbye to the Spiritual Mystic after seven years. I plan on continuing writing about Spiritual Mysticism.
They say if you want something bad enough, you will make the time for it. I did a little more than that. There are big plans for me. Sometime soon I will re-release the book Writing Through the Soul. You can get my dream journals with a soft or hard cover now that I have updated and upgraded them. I have four other books in different stages I plan on working on. I will update Writing Through the Soul Blog and relaunching it on April 1st. After 20 years of blogging, I have learned a few things.
I am proud to say, for the last two weeks, I have been writing every day and sticking to my plan. I am back, baby. And, I am back in a big way.

Congratulations on your new beginning. Sounds like you have had some major life transitions. There were many old endings in your world, then for a while you got stuck in the ‘messy middle,’ however it sounds like you have naviated through the mess and the new beginning is opening. I wish you the very best as you create your new beginning.
