Having spent plenty of time looking through websites about blogs, how to start them, directions for setting them up, and sorting through my pictures, the voice in my head finally asked “Well, are you, or are you not going to write?” This is THE voice that pierces the armor of my ramblings, with no place to hide. Me, face-to-face with me.
I’ve started this blog many times, in my head, wondering what I would say and how I would say it. I realized that I have practiced 2 writing styles. One is for business and business related articles. These, I write in 3rd person and at arms length. The second style is personal, sharing one-on-one conversations with my daughter, dear friends, and colleagues.
The fact of the matter is that I also have a 3rd style – the place where I share my deepest thoughts. This is the writing I have been doing, almost every day, for the past 13 years. I call it “my conversation with self” because in this place, when I am willing to let go, my physical self, my mind, heart, emotions and my spiritual self, talk.
Until today, those writings have been safely kept in the journals in my closet and the files in my computer. For the past six months or so, I have been wanting to bring these personal conversations out into the open – to share what I have learned about life and my journey to self. I just needed the courage and the confidence to trust my voice, my inner voice. And, who is it, after all, that needs to do this trusting? … Duh…. me. How simple is this?
I am in awe of this incredible billboard called the internet, where I can just go, write and share with anyone who finds me. Each week, I will write about discovering life, full of richness, paradox, and delight. And, we will just see where we go. The important step is beginning and we have just begun. Thank you.
