I’m comfortable. It’s the morning time and my home is quiet, peaceful, a bit serene. I’m sitting in my dining room looking out of my window watching as the wind makes its way through the trees. I’m in my good place, a place where I can be me, free from distractions. My computer is in front of me and I’m typing my first entry on writers.work.
Yes! The excitement of freely writing and expressing myself in a way that I love, in a way that suits me, is my good place. I feel satisfied and I’m embracing this new beginning. Hopefully this feeling will transcend across my blog and my facebook groups today.
I did state that this is a “new” beginning. It all started a month ago when I became free to pursue what I am most passionate about, helping others. For years, I worked a 9-5, that was rewarding until it began to drain me, and I had nothing left to offer anyone else, myself included. You see, I live to encourage and help people find a happier way of life. During the last couple of years while I worked for someone else time did not permit me to cultivate or nurture my passion, my way of life was robbing me of what I wanted for myself and others-a happier life.
I’ll introduce myself. My name is Dona Nesbit-Smith. I am a Child of God, a Wife, a Mother, a Relative and Friend. I am also, a writer, singer, motivational speaker, merchandiser and event planner. I have a blog known as “God Wants Me Happy”, 2 Facebook groups-the first one is Grow a Minute-A-Day-With God and the second one is ShePlants. Writing is one of favorite ways to communicate.
God Wants Me Happy
My blog, “God Wants Me Happy“, is focused on removing the grip of depression and living the life that God wants for us. It’s time to be happy, not that every day will bring blissful happiness, but there’s a way to deal with life’s curveballs without losing ourselves in a downward spiral of depression.
Grow A Minute-A-Day-With God
Grow A Minute or GAMAD, is a Facebook group I created 3 years ago to help others grow a relationship with God. Each month presents a new focus and every 3 months we go back to basics and learn to read, pray or spend time with God starting at 1 minute a day and grow through the month, i.e., 2 minutes on the 2nd day of the month, 5 minutes on the 5th day of the month, and so on until we’re reading, praying or spending time with God for 30 minutes.
ShePlants is my baby, not yet a year old, ShePlants is a Facebook group for women who love God, themselves and their families. It’s centered on sharing stories and ideas that will help women of all ages, planting and cultivating seeds to produce greater works in other women.
What lies ahead is nothing less than exciting! New ideas, topics, even stories to write about. Encouraging, helping and reaching out to others through the written word is my path and I’m shooting for the stars!
