This blog has been quiet for quite some time.. the truth is that I was scared to write because writing to me is putting the beatings of my heart out into the world. And my heart has been fragile, and torn and tattered and taken for granted. Broken over the loss of certain things, in a way…the loss of certain dreams. And so I stood in the silence. Unwilling to open my heart to those around me, and even more so to open it to complete strangers.
But, in the silence I wither.
It is almost as I cannot breathe.
Sometimes this life gets too heavy…smothers me..
My release is to write. To share. To invite others to help me make sense of the things that happen to me.
And in my joys…if I do not share them..they do not feel as real.
So even in the moments when it is diffcult. I will break the silence.
In the moments where I am most alive, I will remember to invite others into that joy with me.
Life is meant to be shared. And this is my way of doing so.
I will no longer choose silence.
