A new Idea for Me

Updated on November 8, 2016

I learned about making sheep's wool during my stay in South Africa. An interesting process to oversee.

Life is what you Make of it!

Change showed from within, and from the outside life.

I did not give up the hardship, instead grew stronger and relied on my thoughts.

My stay in a foreign country gave me the opportunity to write, and share my experiences with faithful readers.

My new idea is to write a memoir.

I am writing a memoir not a biography.

An autobiography is about an individual's life story, and sharing everything in order about a person.

A memoir as I have chosen is on a specific event that made a change for that individual.

For example:

I am writing about the change in my life since the move to a new place.

My focus is on the events that changed my life.

There is no starting at the beginning when writing a memoir, so I would start from the middle, or whatever comes first to mind.

I am using my different senses to allow my readers to know more about my new life.

I was hurt and now I am free from that hurt.

I let go of what was, and know that, that will never be again.

My past is a memory and present life is very important to me.

I feel like a new person from all these experiences.

I am positive and got my life in control.

My lessons learned from one continent to another, is that people are unique and handle situations differently.

We all do have lots in common but in the most unique way.

Everything happens to everyone for different reasons but people tend to see their issues in their own ways.

Writing about a series of events from my life, especially from the African continent to the European continent is a huge lesson for me.

How do you see it?

It gives me confidence and an understanding in life.

I view issues lightly knowing how my life changed.

In my writings I find out more about myself. I don't ignore my problems I face up to it.

I appreciate my new life but I want to let others know how I passed the obstacles and had moved on.

I see more value in friendships and in family life, that won't change.

Off-course, life will never be the same again! I understand the reasons for all that change. I had to get up and move in my own footsteps.

Who said life was a bed of roses?

No such thing!

I can't be what I am not!

I am far from family and have grown with that adjustment.

The heart knows better and mine is no different.

When I talk to people who understand me that gives me a whole new attitude towards life.

The small community have accepted me but I know deep down that is all it is.

Getting together with the local people is a good experience but can be a bit tiring when conversations become boring.

I prefer to be with my kind of people.

Through the changes I discovered my new life.

Change is not for everyone but you can't escape change in life or anything that comes to you.

I have been locked out of life, the only life I had ever known for a long time.

A kind of life that I can only have back during my visit back home.

I made my own life in Croatia to be happy, and free from all troubled thoughts.

I learned more from this new life than from the old life.

I grew up naturally with the change and peaceful surroundings.

Living in a less- stressed out lifestyle has shown me more than I had expected from life.

I cherish every moment and enjoy each day.

What I now have I did not have before that is a good way of looking at my life and that is my freedom.

You can't always have what you want. You can change that thought by improving your lifestyle.

Live the way you want to not from what others want for you.

Show character and be yourself.

I am trying to identify the pieces of my life, and to put it all together to write a memoir.

A memoir is a great idea to allow others to learn from my lessons learned.

In telling my story I learn more from my mistakes. I inform readers of my experiences and to where all that got me.

My aim is to write what comes to mind and edit later. If I edit my work while writing each word that would interrupt the process.

I don't want to forget what I want to say.

Writing my memoir in the first person is ideal.

For example: The use of I, my, and me are the words used mostly in such cases.

Also, I want to tell the truth about all my experiences from the good experiences to the not so good experiences.

Readers must get the story clearly and from all sides.

So what is it really?

Based on my memory I need to be at my best in writing my memoir. I have lots to do, and to catch up on. Research must be accurate and I know that from within.

Me, sharing what had already happened to me, and had affected me in such ways, that is why it is important for me to get on with it.

The most important facts for all to know of and to learn from is through my writing.

I don't believe that everyone would want to share a memoir, it is personal.

The whole experience is great!

I like to be myself when sharing my memoir.

People relate better to anyone showing their true self.

I know to be simple in my writing, and with a simple understanding.

Imagine you are writing a letter to a friend, that is how you should write that memoir as I have I learned during my research.

How my life changed, only I know what I had to go through for all those times.

Sometimes i feel alone, and wish for what I haven't had the taste of in many years from my old life.

My story has many emotions once shared I will learn more about that part of me.

Words are just words, but when spoken with a great meaning can change a person's life forever.

I don't like to keep it all in, it makes feel unhappy, writing about my thoughts is my best choice.

I couldn't change the way change came to me, I had to move on and live my life.

I took each day as it came, and knew from then on I was going in another direction.

I didn't walk away from my hardship instead, I stayed and worked it all out.

I am positive and my strengths took me forward and not everything is about love

No money in this world can bring anything back to me to what my life once was, I don't think of my life in that way anymore.

I think of my life with happiness, laughter, and good health.

Life is what you make of it!

Reflections of my personal life brought me here today. To write what taught me the many lessons.

What I learned about many people have opened my mind to only a few.

Learn from your mistakes!

      I don't see myself ever moving from my hometown, but it's interesting to read about the process through your eyes. Thanks for sharing.

      For a few years I moved away from my home, and I was happy. I now live back home and I am happy. I know moving to another country, as you did, must have been difficult but you survived and learned to be happy. I admire your courage...

      Life is what we make of it, well said. It must have been difficult in a new place without family and friends. You have gone through difficult times and have come out on top!

      Loved reading about your idea. Can I make a suggestion? By posting chapter for chapter in Hubpages, like I did with the Self Employed Housewife, but instead write it as if you are writing a page into your own daily diary and start it from whenever date suits you. The date above your chapter ( and the image of a diary) might become the title of your post. Just an idea. You can always many chapters later publish it as an ebook while still keeping your chapters for people to read here for free!

      " I cherish the moment and enjoy everyday", what more can any one ask for. The changes in your life my friend have been challenging and at times must have been very stressful, but you seem to have over come the hardest and most hurtful. I look forward to reading your life story. That is a great idea from Nadine May {above} I wish you all the best with your writing.
