Omg, More Good News!

Hidden In Childhood: A Poetry Anthology Gabriela Maria Milton

How It Started:

As I mentioned in my Goals for 2023 post, I want to write more. As much as I love doing everything I offer on my services page for work, at the end of the day I’m still a writer. My heart beats for writing. All I have ever wanted to do and all I want to do is write. That’s why when I read this post by Cindy about Hidden In Childhood: A Poetry Anthology, I decided to also submit a poem of my own.

The Real Story

Well, that’s not the full story to be honest. I read that post and was like maybe I should submit something. But I also get anxious about stuff like that and procrastinate because I’m scared of failure. And I was intimidated by the fact that so many talented poets had submitted their work. I’m not really a poet and I know it. Sometimes I read the poems that you guys share on your blogs and get so intimidated because it’s better than anything I will ever write. So, I was like “nah.” But out of nowhere, a poem came to be that I thought would be perfect for the anthology. So I decided to ignore the always present voice of anxiety in my head and submit the poem anyway. What’s the worst that could happen? I get rejected?

I submitted it on 2nd January and in a couple of hours I got the confirmation that my poem was accepted. It was so exciting reading the confirmation email and I was excited to share the news with you guys! I also want to thank Gabriela Maria Milton for editing Hidden In Childhood: A Poetry Anthology and putting all this together. I’ve discovered her blog more recently and love her content. And I think it’s wonderful that she is giving writers a chance to share their work like this.

  33. I will say to you one thing, whether you like it or not.
    Stop undermining yourself. Never ever doubt yourself or tell to yourself that you cannot do certain thing.
    Your subconscious mind picks up the wrong idea, and it will prevent you from doing it.
    Please practice self-appreciation my dear friend, you have endless potential.

    1. Thank you so much, trying my best to do just that!

      1. You have unlimited potential.
        You ever thought of doing blogging daily 8 years ago?
        No, right? Now look at you.
        Have a creativity, knowledge and skills, just believe in yourself more.
        Now smile, this may sound like berate, but it was not. 😅
        I care about you buddy, and I want you to excel further. 🤗
        Here’s a 🥝 for you 🙂

                  What’s your favourite?

                  1. Top 5 in order
                    litchi, kiwi, custard apple, mango, green apple. Then I like strawberries, oranges, grapes, Pineapple and banana in top 10

                    1. Oh I see, very interesting. We’re opposites with fruit lol.

  34. That is AWESOME news to hear. What a great way to start the new year.

    Two words you used in this post are 2 words I have taken and replaced in my vocabulary. Your success in at the end of this post is the reason I have made this change.

    The words “failure” and “rejected,” we use as building blocks for anxiety and depression. These 2 word build on the anxiety and depression in some ways, which create negitivity.

    I choose to use these moments of “failure” and “rejection” as ways to learn to build positivity. Think ot them as not giving up but change direction or leaving options open. Which is exactly what you did. You did not give up, created tha poem and achieves success, a positive movement forward.

    Again, CONGRATUlATIONs!!!

    1. Thank you so much! I’m working on pushing through the negative stuff and just live my life instead of fear holding me back.

      1. One way to face fear. HEAD – ON

        1. Yup, absolutely.

  55. Congratulations on your submission. You are an excellent writer. I think I’m still trying to find my niche with my writing. I have been concentrating on news stories and not on my personal story. The poem idea was like a light bulb going off, I might give that a try and see what happens. Thank you for the inspiration.

    1. I’m glad that gave the idea. I think poetry is a great way to share your story or even just express yourself. Thanks so much.
