Here I am, embarking on a new life adventure as a blogger. Who knew!
I best begin with an exercise I still need to practice periodically, facing my fear by acknowledging its presence. I am definitely feeling trepidation and dread about writing this blog. I am a visual artist, NOT a writer! In fact, I often struggle with even the slightest need to write anything!
As we travel forward, you will primarily be reading excerpts directly from my journal pages (which weren’t always pretty!). One doesn’t journal for purpose of publication (quite the opposite!). It is however a highly personal exercise that can be an amazing tool for self-discovery and personal growth. In retrospect, I imagine I found it successful primarily because of one thing – when journaling I completely suspended judgment of what I was writing because no one would ever see it. That attitude may not work here!
