love, life, and the pursuit of liberation
I’ve spent the past weeks brooding. Brooding about life, trying to sort out my feelings and name the source of my melancholy (*cough*depression*cough* more on that in another post), observing my feelings and sitting in silence. When I’m in this frame of mind, it’s hard for me to write, socialize, and interact with the world. I know that so many of you appreciate my words and learn something new when you visit my blog, but it’s been hard for me to figure out what to say to encourage your liberation when I feel so stuck in this place.
I was sharing how I was struggling with CD this Saturday and she encouraged me to tell my whole truth, not to feel obligated to put on a smile and offer optimism when that’s not where my heart is. She also encouraged me to get clear about what it is that I intend to offer with this space and to not be afraid to be fully myself—the good and the not-so-good. Sounds familiar? This is just what I have been encouraging with my posts about authenticity here, here, and here.
So all that to say that I’m spending this month getting clear about who I am, how I got here, and what I’m learning about myself. My posts this month will share my reflections about my spiritual journey, my real feelings about infertility, what I’m learning as a writer, and what it means to be authentically me. I also will be sharing some tools, exercises, readings, and steps for you to use as you embark on your own journey towards liberation.
Ready for this ride? Hop on.
