The last time I blogged was in September 2016. A lot has happened in almost two years. Folks have died, grown, moved. I have gained friends, I have lost friends. Most of all: I have evolved. I stopped writing for several reasons. One: I was ( and I am still) going through a transformation phase in my life. It sounds cliche and pseudo-poetic, but it is true. Two: I really was not in a space to write about knowing your worth, etc. when I truly haven’t dealt with my issues. Don’t get me wrong–I believed what I wrote. I still do. However, I really wasn’t applying those lessons. I was still on the same hamster wheel or hurt, pain, low self esteem. Three: I love God. However, my blog posts weren’t as authentic to who I really am. They were too……..churchy; a tad too preachy. As much as I love God, He created an individual who thinks outside the box, sees different perspectives ( even if I may not agree) and likes to use colorful, less than Christian, non politically correct language to get her point across. I guess I didn’t want anyone to miss the message so I packaged it in a churchy box with a bow.
Now-I can say I am in the process of getting off the hamster wheel. And I want to blog about it. Hence the name change. Hence the change in background. It is all symbolic of evolution. I also want to write from a space that is truly authentic to myself.
I am back.
Are you ready to go on a ride? I want to show you some nuggets I’ve collected since the last time we spoke.
