I apologize that I have not written here on my blog since February 12th! I have been so busy with school, band, and life in general.
As it happens sometimes, I was in a rut. A very sad rut, which is very unlike me. If I am being honest, I am still in it, but today was the stepping stone back to the happier Nichelle I know.
I woke up this morning to a beautiful surprise, that my piece about negativity entitled, “Good Morning!” had been published on a website, and I am still ecstatic with the news. I have officially been published for people to see, and it is a wonderful thing.
In fact, I had been arguing with myself that I did not know how to be my happy self anymore, that I had forgotten, but when I saw that it had been put out there, something bloomed inside me like the moment you fall in love, the moment you realize that everything is well. I was overcome with a sense of relief but also excitement, and for the first time in awhile, I could not help but overflow with joy.
I saw the amount of support I received from my friends and family today, and it was an amazing feeling to see people feeling as proud and accomplished as I am of something I had done.
Then, I reread my piece, and I realized exactly who I am because I love positivity and sadness does not suit me. After reading it, I remembered how to be Nichelle. It will take time, but I figured out the first step.
If you would like to see my thoughts on negativity and what saved me today, please check out my piece entitled “Good Morning!” at http://www.contemplatus.com/good-morning/
Thank you, and I hope to be back on my writing game soon. 🙂
