Who Me? Write? You've Got To Be Kidding!

I can't believe how far I've gone with this blogging thing! Truth be told, I am not a writer, and I am surprised how I am keeping up with my blogs.

If someone told me in my high school years that I'll be writing, my answer would be "you've got to be kidding me!". English, Language, Writing, Literature were not part of my favorite subjects in school. I love Science, Psychology and Social Studies ...but writing? God knows how many books reports I had plagiarized back then. It was my weakness. I was not good at grammar and I was not a creative writer. Part of the problem was that I wasn't a "reader" either. I didn't read for pleasure back then.

So when did I like writing? In college I gave my life to Jesus (was "born again", as others would say). During my early Christian life, I had the urge to start a journal (mind you, I wasn't a "diary-writing" kind of person at that time too). In my journal I started writing to God, what I feel, what happened to my day, my prayers, wishes, and requests. The more I write, the more I enjoyed it. I realize that I can express myself in writing, and that my quiet time with God is not only enhanced but it was "documented" as well. I also started my love affair with books. I started reading for pleasure (actually for spiritual growth) and love doing it since then.

I have been blog hopping this week and found so many wonderful bloggers who express themselves so well. I caught myself a couple of time wishing I can be as eloquent and as funny and creative as them. Then a tiny small voice inside me said ... "you're doing just fine...."

Yeah, writing is not something I am very good at..but something I am growing in to and loving it. I think I'd blog some more :)
