I have been told that I’m a private person, and I think my unwillingness to share has grown exponentially over the past few years. I won’t open the proverbial can of worms as to why, at least not right here right now, but I will say that I’m consistently surprised and inspired by people that are so open and willing to share. Misgivings about a job or trouble in a relationship, epic failures, and great triumphs. These moments, good and bad, are what make me realize how important it is to push through the discomfort and connect with other people. This, for me, is easier said than done. But, I’m going to make an effort and begin here, on the blog. I’ll utilize this space as my journal, and maybe this opportunity to uncomfortably share how I feel will help me grow, and/or resonate with someone else.

I know it won’t be easy but I’ve found that when I write out the heavy stuff, I can often stand back and figure out the root of the problem. I also have a hard time not worrying about what other people think, so this will be an exercise in not giving an eff.

So… let’s do this.

    First of all, I love the new logo. Such a clever idea! And then… I can totally relate! The funny thing about blogging is when you think every blogger is an extrovert and so outgoing and when you finally get to meet them in person, it’s mindboggling how private and introverted they turn out to be.
    I think the internet is for everyone. For those who are open books and for people who are not willing to share life’s curve balls and both patterns are valuable and important and totally fine.

    Welcome back!
