This blog represents me – scattered, authentic, passionate, compassionate, and spontaneous. I have many passions, many feelings and many thoughts that I want to share, which is why this blog is the way it is. It isn’t professional or direct. It’s raw, honest and vulnerable.
As someone who has a desire to write, this blog and my Instagram account fulfills that desire. I’m not sure if it is the same for all writers. I find myself jumbling over speech. I have thoughts that are clear but when I try to speak them I struggle. I’m not incapable, I just feel that there is a translation error from thought to voice. Words come out easily, but they don’t often convey what I’m trying to say. Writing feels more like my primary form of communication. There’s no need for me to spend time thinking, like I do when I am talking. I often find that many people respond quickly in a conversation and I feel that when I type it comes out in that same manner. Text is clearer and more to the point and conveys exactly what I mean. There’s no stumbling or long pauses and I don’t have to say, ‘I’m sorry I’m not very good at explaining things,’ or, ‘you know what I mean,’ or any related phrases.
With writing, you can reach more people, especially now with the Internet. The voiceless now have a powerful voice that can inspire, influence and guide others.
If you feel the same, I encourage you to write. You have a gift to share with the world.
…and that is why I write.
