It’s been nearly a year since I’ve shared in this space, and I have missed it. But, I’ve struggled with doubts about my ability, my message, my direction, and my purpose here.
Does the world really need another blog? Do people really need someone else to read and hear from? Do I really have ANYTHING worth writing and sharing?
There are a myriad of blogs on the world wide web, so no, there isn’t a dire need for more. There are tons of bloggers with messages and writing much clearer and more poignant than mine. So no, the world isn’t going to run out of people who are putting their words out into the world.
But, in spite of those things, I do believe that I have words worth sharing. I may feel like I am just a mom most days, but I’m a mom who God has given different experiences and different perspectives that maybe, just maybe, I can encourage others with. So, I’m going to walk in that. I’m going to believe that God stirs words and thoughts in my heart and mind for a purpose and that sharing them here is a good thing.
But, I’m also going to give myself some freedom. I’ll write and post when I can and when I have a message worth sharing. I’ll write because I love to, not because I feel I have to. And I’ll write from the lens of seeking the true, good, and beautiful in this life. As imperfect as it is and inevitably will be, there is still much truth, goodness, and beauty to see. I want to help you see that too.
So, that’s me, and this is my blog. I’m really glad to be back here.
