I thought of starting my writing support group last 2014 pa, but hesitated kasi baka walang pumunta. Finally, last week, I told myself, kahit may pumunta or wala, go lang. Eh di mag-isa akong magsulat and to do the writing exercises I prepared in case no one shows up.
I’m happy that two people attended during the 1st meetup of Pages Ink and Paper (PIP) held in El Pollo Loco, MOA last Friday – Voltaire Maniquis (an EENT doctor who would like to write about investing in the stock market) and Richard Viador (former seaman and author of the book “Dreamship”) ?
Based on our chat, Voltaire and Richard would like to write books like me. We plan to help each other attain that dream, and hopefully by 2017, our books will be out ?
Anyway, I’m just glad I took that first big step na lakasan lang ang loob ko to start this writing group, whether may pumunta man or wala. If I didn’t, I would never have met these two wonderful people with big dreams and big hearts. They made me feel that they are there to support and that anything is possible ? thanks guys!
I realized abundant blessings are indeed just waiting for us – only after we just have that courage to take that first big step ?
How about you, what’s that first big step you’ve been wanting to take? …
