Daily Gratitude 1/3/14

GratitudeToday I am grateful for the beginning of a new experience. I have started my two year quest to earn a Master of Fine Arts Degree in Poetry!

I will admit, I am overwhelmed, exhausted, and my mind if reeling from all of the information that it has been filled with today…

I will admit, I have never been happier in my life. I know the snippets I thought about yesterday have become clear images of where my writing will go from here.

I will admit, it’s a ton of work and my social life will be nonexistent while in this program.

I will admit, I am taking on a workload that will alter everything I’ve understood about who I am as a writer up to this point.

I will read more books in the next two years than I have have in the past 20. How thrilling is that?

I will admit, I am one very fortunate human being.

I will admit, I am filled with love, compassion, understanding, and a sense of realization that my life is about to change in ways I can’t even fathom yet!
