I finally did it! I started a blog! I have been thinking of doing this for a while now and tonight is the night. I welcome this into my world and I welcome anyone who will follow me on this adventure.
I guess I will start by saying that I have no designated theme for this space… I just know that I have been needing a place to express myself in a little more detail, with a little more depth, and it seems that everyone else is doing it, so why not me too?
I also will say that I have a lot to say these days. And, as a sort of warning to those of you who might stumble upon this and read through, not all of the things I have to say are nice. I feel like maybe I should have a disclosure agreement… a waiver… if you read this and you feel as though I am talking about you, in a negative way, please don’t take it personally. I have no ill intention.
We are taught to watch our tongues. The age old expression of “If you haven’t got anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all” comes to mind. Maybe writers who do daily pieces and create their works by extrapolating material from their daily lives struggle with this issue. Is this a valid boundary issue? Or maybe it is more of a self proclaimed racket of mine; projecting feelings of guilt that I have after seeing people in their moments of vulnerability, darkness, and their short comings…. and being able to take something from that to perhaps create something positive for myself and possibly for someone else? Lord knows I have those moments myself and someone else’s perspective could be and probably is as negative… maybe it is not negative at all… let me stop…. move onto something else…. I don’t know where I am going but hopefully you can see what I was getting at.
Today has been a day full of change for me and I will explore those changes in full a little later as I don’t seem to have the energy to get into it all just now. The weather today was chilly, rainy, grey, and gloomy. Perfect for a saturday, but it is Tuesday and it seemed to throw everyone I spoke to off. But in the laziness of the day, I found some themes. Certain words and topics kept popping up today… like the topic of the weather.
Listening is very important. If you cannot hear, you cannot feel, or see. Listen to your soul. Hear your surroundings, and what they are saying. If you can listen, really listen, than I believe you will find something that resonates within you. It is the vibrations that we are able to tap into that tune into where we are and connect us to ourselves and to each other. When we are able to connect, we find the space to create change and by changing and opening up we become more easily reformed.
I hope that today I was able to listen closely and I think I heard some things that have been calling out to me with a much more intense frequency. I can’t wait to see what hearing this will bring. Thank you for listening to me. See you later.
