Honesty and the Courage to Share

I am pretty skeptical of sharing my inner most thoughts.

Actually, to be totally honest, I am petrified of posting my writing. I am afraid of rejection and being perceived as dumb. The only remedy I could think of to sooth my fears, is to share relentlessly, thus begin my ramblings. I hope this blog will turn into a place for at least one person to turn to when they need inspiration, advice, or to realize that they are not alone in the experience called life.

Tonight, as a share my first entry, I want to set the tone for the rest of my musings and say that I will be as honest as I have the courage to be about my process. I feel that it is critical in our digital age to remember that as humans, we must choose to bond over the things that unite us in similarity, as well as, support one another around the things that make us different. It is my intention to write for the collective, about the collective, so that we can all remember that we are celebrating and struggling with similar themes as those around us, even if most of us decide to suffer silently in the solace of our own minds and hearts.

May we have the courage to speak our truths and in the process, inspire others to confide in the notion of community to do the same and liberate suffering from our collective consciousness, one step at a time.
