Let me properly introduce myself to WordPress.com. Hi, welcome to my very first blog! Yay me! My name is Dorothy, hence dorothy’s page. Clever right? I know. I’m a genius. Here, you’ll learn a little bit about who I am through short stories, poetry and other forms of the art of writing.
As the second eldest of four girls living in the south, my desire was to succeed, overcome the weight of poverty and pursue my life’s purpose. Purpose and success haunted me constantly. I had never seen success, but I knew I wanted it; needed it.
I imagined it would be fairly easy to obtain. Just go to school, get good grades, graduate then make it through college. Funny thing though, I had no idea what I was going to do to obtain this illusive success. A gymnast, flight attendant, journalist, executive, whatever would yield the most results the fastest. But I never seemed to stick with anything that required patience or endurance. After watching others run up the latter ahead of me, I figured “There has to be a better way. How are they doing this? I have a degree just like they do. What gives?”
One day I was introduced to the word process. I was intrigued. “What is this process you speak of?”, I pondered to myself as I absorbed the wisdom of one of my many teachers in the faith. The moment I heard that seven letter word I knew that it would be the bridge I would have to cross to make it into the land of success. It’s ironic that the word process has seven letters. For seven is the biblical number for perfection or completion. Because success, is a process. How apropos.
Thank you for reading and following dorothy’spage as I share the journey to me.
