It’s been far too long.
I’ve missed this.
You know how when you don’t do something for a really long time, you feel a sense of paralysis to tackle it again?!
That’s been me.
Why is that? We shy away from the very thing that helps make a better us.
For me, it’s been fear- fear that I have nothing valuable or clever to say, fear that I will present a post that is boring or grammatically incorrect (for shame, you know), fear that the FEARS I am currently facing in my life would bleed through to my writing and readers would play on their tiny violin when reading my failures. I am so often constrained by expectations still (need to work on this more)!
But then it hit me: I write because I love it. I write because it frees my mind. I write because if one person can resonate with my thoughts or feelings and it encourages or helps them, my heart is HAPPY!
My blog means something to me and I have neglected it. I intend to change that starting today. You may find an occasional syntax error and I might just type some offensively strong language at times, but I am OK with that.
I strive towards integrity in all things and this can be done only through candor and without fear.
To that end I will write. Hang on. It might be crazy!
