Once upon a time in Retail Land…

…there was a manager whom I enjoyed. Every time a customer came inside, she would say “Welcome in!” There was something about it that made you feel like you were entering her home instead of her store.

That’s how I want you to feel here.

This is my writing home, not my blog spot.
You’re invited to sit and chat,
not just scroll and click.

If we’re honest with ourselves, we hear what we need, yet we do what we want.  A few years ago, I made a vow to change that. Some days, it’s practical questioning and reasoning… other days, it’s an epiphany or a shot of happiness. The one thing you can count on is that I’m going to write down my moments of Truth as I hear them. I encourage you to listen at the speed of life as well and keep a notebook nearby.

Your future self will thank you.

Yep, Desiree Danielle Photography did it again.

The purpose of this blog is to share motivation and inspiration for everyday life. Feel free to share my posts. Just use the hashtag #thewritewade or tag me on social media using @thewritewade and I’ll support it. In the meantime, you have an open invitation to join me here with your favorite beverage in hand. Like any good visit, it can be short and sweet or long and lovely. I pray that something on the blog blesses you richly, convicts you lovingly, and inspires you deeply… just as it does for me.

If you want to keep in touch, feel free to sign up for my e-list. I barely email once a quarter, but I blog every other month. So, you’re in good hands. 🙂

Peace, Thanks for listening, and Welcome In.
