It’s the eve of 2016: what better time to take the plunge and write my first post. Truth be told, I have no idea what will come of this blog, where it may take me and where I will be next year on the eve of 2017. I choose to believe I will be in a great place mentally, which is far more important to me than being at any specific physical location.
Which is why I am here now.
This blog is my way of getting back to my roots. At my core I am a writer and I always have been. I got sidetracked many years ago, when I chose to accept the belief systems of others as my truth. Now in the second half of 2015 I have come to find that my truth, my belief system, is vastly different than many I have surrounded myself with in the past. What was true to me once is now false. And so I have begun to build myself up again, brick by brick, thought by thought, so that I may feel complete again. Deep? Yes. Laughable to some? Sure. But do the opinions of others matter, when I know in my heart I’m doing what is right for me? No.
This is my truth-seeking, soul-freeing, story-sharing, ever-evolving manifesto. I hope you’ll join me and share your stories as well.
