We all come here for different reasons. Whether you read online blogs to escape or publish your own to engage, no doubt you have come across writers whose focus or voice is quite unique.
I write because that’s all I know. Oftentimes it seems as though I’m writing about things that are very personal and that I’m willing to share my every thought with anyone who happens upon this page.
Lately, though, I’ve had to take a second look at why I put my life out there like that. I have to take into consideration the other people in my life that are affected by, or who could be affected by, the words I write, the stories I share.
The last few weeks have been crazy, interesting and inspiring. I’ve had deep discussions with many wise and thoughtful individuals about life changing events that I just cannot write about – at least not yet. And it has been killing me.
On one hand, it feels like I am keeping a secret by not sharing everything. On the other, I know that there are special stories that take time to evolve and that once shared will be more rich for having that time to reflect on what has truly taken place.
Life takes us on unexpected journeys. We’re never given more than we can handle and the people who are placed in our path are here to teach us, guide us and push us to grow, challenge us to rise to our full potential.
Each and every one of you has given me strength to continue, inspired me to laugh at myself and encouraged me to store away these details and tidbits for a greater story that I know I will share, soon. I hope you stick around. The best is yet to come.
