Well, for one, I’d write this first blog post. I wouldn’t worry about what the audience would think. I wouldn’t listen to my inner critic (a very vocal and bossy lizard named Frederick) when he asks, “Who are you to have a message to share?”
I wouldn’t get stuck on the first page of the journal, the first paragraph of the story, the first steps of the journey. I would dive in, head first, blissfully in the moment… with no concern for “What’s next?” I would let all the words spill from my brain and onto the page, my internal editor sent to lunch.
Fears quieted and love unfolding, I would write. My opinions, thoughts, feelings – all worth being shared. The exposure, vulnerability, transparency – all worth the risk.
So with this, my first blog, I welcome you to the meaning within my mess.
Sincerely, Dr. Sarah
