Hello, my name is Ana. Welcome to my blog! I started this blog to motivate myself to write every day. I embarked on a writing journey to find out all I could about the writing world. There are a lot of techniques and ways to write. However, I enjoy writing because it allows me to share my feelings, experiences, inspirational/motivational things, personal interest stories, as well as writing information, with others. My goal is to write a daily devotional/journal. I am a Christian and have discovered that faith is never losing hope. I welcome your feedback and anything you would like to share. Thank you for visiting.

For a year now I have been committed to writing every day, whether it makes sense or not. In this writing journey I have learned that before I can genuinely write, I need to open myself up and not be afraid or hold back. I feel liberated through writing. My mind has opened up tremendously in the course of this past year, and it has facilitated my writing. I cannot be true if I do not expose the person I am inside, I cannot shut out parts of me I may not like and just show the parts I do. I feel I have grown as a person and as a writer, but only because I wanted to. The opportunity to change and "fix" me, allowed writing to follow more naturally. Anything inspirational and/or motivational opens up my creative soul and allows my writing to have more meaning.
The key to all this, I found, is to change the way you think, feel and do things. How do you motivate yourself to change? Why Change? What is in it for me? I can make a list of the advantages and long term results of what change can do for me. I like to shake things up a bit, think outside the box and grow in a positive, healthy, and spiritual manner. I can see that each day I live I experience something different; where will this experience take me? Who will I become from this? There has to be something I can take away from life's trials, happy moments, etc., so that I can reach out and touch someone with it. Writing has opened up a whole new world for me and the writing possibilities are endless.
