Cheynoea`s thoughts blog

 

My blog is called Cheynoea’s Thoughts. This name came from my Native American heritage. I was given this name as my adult native name by one of my elders. It is more like just a nickname because it is not on any of my legal documents. It means White Dove. A dove stands for peace and I am a peacemaker above all else.

My blog does not follow any one topic of conversation. I write what is in my heart and in my thoughts on any given day. This can range from non-fiction, self-help or self-improvement, thoughts about what is going on in the world, true-life stories, writer’s challenges, poetry, music, and even fiction or fantasy.

I think this recent post about my writing journey will explain most of why I write. It is in my blood. In my soul. It is as much a part of me as my limbs, hair, eyes, and ears.

My Writing Journey

I started my blog in 2015. I posted here and there but never really maintained it like I do now. I struggled to obtain followers and became discouraged. I knew and still know very little about blogging. What I do know is that I have a strong desire to share my life story, thoughts, and opinions in a way that will inspire and encourage others to fight through their struggles. I wish to leave the world a better place for our youth. If my writing can somehow do that, I have succeeded.

 

Character is Moral Integrity.

It goes hand in hand with your personal happiness!

If you have poor character, and treat others distastefully,

You will surely be unhappy in life.

If you have a good character, and treat others well,

God will provide happiness in your heart.

LOVE is the most precious Gift you can give to yourself and others.

In 2012, I moved away from the hustle and bustle of London, to a peaceful retirement in a small country village. One of my friends suggested I start a blog, to record the experience of that huge change in my life.
What began as a tentative journal soon developed into so much more. Recollections of my previous jobs, music nostalgia, film reviews, and memories of my youth in London. Then I got a dog, and began to add stories of daily walks with him. Encountering local wildlife, enduring often awful weather, and meeting other dog walkers on a daily basis.
I later added fictional short stories, some of which were subsequently published in a magazine, and on other websites.

Blogging went from an idea to a way of life within a few years, and I am now part of a great community, lucky to have many loyal followers who have become good friends too. I now try to help new bloggers too, by adding posts about blogging do’s and don’ts, help and advice, and suggestions to inspire them.
It is a great way to combine self-expression with meeting a diverse group of people from all over the world.
