Saying Something

I've been intrigued for quite some time about the whole blogging phenomenon but haven't had the courage to really dive in and do it. When I try to figure out why that could be, I realize that I fear that I might not have something to say, or that no one will care what I say, or read what I say, or worse yet I'll be criticized for something I say. Yikes!

There is also something about putting my thoughts out there in cyberspace for all the world to see that feels really, really vulnerable. Yup, it is a vulnerable thing to do.

So why do it at all?

Well,... I've believed for most of my life that I was a writer with something to say. I've been told that I write well and that others enjoy what I say when I do take the time to write. I enjoy writing but I also resist it at the same time. When I write I learn things. I learn things about myself that I might not have been aware of before and sometimes I learn things that I really didn't want to know. So it's a blessing and a curse, this writing thing I do.

But sometimes I just might have something to say. Sometimes I might want to put it out there, own it and see what happens. So, for those times I now have a place. If I have something that feels worthwhile to say, I'll say it here in my new blog.



  1. YAY You! FOr being willing to be vulnerable and to put your words out there. I always appreciate what you have to say and how you say it, so you know you have at least one fan! :->
    much love, Y.

  2. In Positive Psy we were told for one assignment to take a drive with no music and just hear our inner voice.. sometimes try to hear our inner thoughts come to the surface. I'm glad you're a blogger now :) Please see if you can schedule time for yourself too.
