I’ve always been someone who was worried about the next step…
Every agonizing detail, every minute laid out – I needed to know the when, where, who, and why to every what that was laid before me. Ask those closest to me if you can – it drove them insane.
I wish I could say that through my twenty-eight years I’ve been able to gain a sort of mastery over this obsessive anxiety, but that would be a lie. I can, however, say that I’ve been introduced to a revolutionary idea that is making the process easier – choosing to live life on day at a time.
Writing has always been an outlet for me, but in the process of selling my soul to the gods of acceptance and acknowledgement, I willingly laid it down on the altar. What a waste.
Here is what this blog is not and will not be:
- A self-help website – You won’t find three easy steps to overcoming _______ here. That doesn’t mean I don’t want to encourage you but I often find such topics to be lacking in – how do you say – reality.
- It won’t always be positive – Sometimes life is dark and there are questions that remain unanswered. I’m not afraid to let the silence be.
- A place of hiding – If you’re reading this and expect to find positive “vibes” here, go read another blog. The overall goal of my writing is to move towards healing through Christ, but healing is messy. It requires a willingness to dig into the mire – a willingness to be challenged – a willingness to ask tough questions and not be afraid of silence in return.
Here is what this blog is and will be:
- An open space dedicated to mentally processing the journey we are all on in my own unique way. Whether through poetry, photography, or random ponderings, perhaps you will find a bit of healing for yourself in the knowledge that you’re not alone.
You are loved.
You are valued.
