Friends and friends to be,
I am beginning a new journey….would you like to join? I am a writer trying to share her words with the world. The only problem, I haven’t worked up enough courage to actually share it!! Silly, that I can sit here and write a blog post about not being able to write a word. But that is the paradox of me.
I can, but I can’t.
I want to, but I don’t.
I am passionate, but I sit back.
I care, but I give up.
I have strength and power, but I am weak.
But maybe soon, I will be scared, but I will put it out there anyway.
I sometimes think I am so unique. That all these personalities and opposing forces inside me make me so different from everyone out there, and if I could only figure out who I am and what I stand for, I will be able to write what I want to say.
Has it even occurred to me that actually everyone is doing the same and then building a cover, a mask, a layer of designer clothes and pretty makeup just to hide that one thing that makes us all the same? Why am I trying so hard to present a person who is fully formed and has the answer to everything, who is brave enough to share words with the world? I could just present the little mess that is me and figure it out as I go.
So here you are and here I am.
