I volunteer on a daily basis to share my thoughts and feelings with the blogging universe. My followers include old friends and new, through WordPress and email, and even some exes (yes, exes). It’s not always comfortable or easy to share my innermost thoughts and feelings. It’s as if I’ve given everyone a key to enter my mind, my heart and my soul. In the beginning, and even now, I worried that I would be judged on how I write or what I write about or see me as weak when I write about my flaws, my failed relationships, my vulnerabilities.
The opposite has actually occurred. I have been called strong, brave, talented, creative, real and many other compliments that so very humble me, yet lift me up. I cannot stop writing, I won’t stop writing. There are times when I am laughing as I am writing, times when I am absolutely angry and times when I am driven to tears and sob as I hit the keys to bring my words to life. I write who I am, flaws and all, grammatical mistakes included.
One thing I have become is more confident. It’s not always easy to bare your soul, your feelings, but I will keep doing it. I am confident of who I am, and what I am capable of, both in real life and on paper. My hand is up and I am volunteering to continue this journey as well. Thank you for coming along with me.
