February 2020. 2 months without my Dad on this earth. 8 months without my Grandma Fellure on this earth. 19 months without my Uncle Steve on this earth. 1 month before the pandemic began.
The unexpected grief I had been experiencing led me to share my words with others. It was partly for me to navigate this world, and partly because I knew that as I learned on this path, I could connect and help others. After writing my first post, I gained the courage to share it in March 2020. Would my words be well received? What if no one reads it? What if no one likes it? What if they do?
Then, I realized that it didn’t matter. Those who resonate with my words will find them. And if my journey of finding beauty in the unknown could help at least one person, it would be worth taking the time to write and share my words. And the amazing thing is, I have received comments and messages letting me know that my words have inspired or helped others.
I have found truth and passion as I have connected with my intuition. This is what keeps me going. I recently found something that I had written when I was 8 years old. I saw that the 8 year old in me wanted to be a writer and a teacher when she grew up. Maybe the path has been winding and uncertain, but when I read those words, I knew they were still my truth. Writing is where I feel the most alive, and I love the idea that my words can have a positive impact on others.
So, I will keep writing. I will share my words with the world, even if I don’t know who will read them or how they will be received. I will do this for me, and for you. I will do this to share my truth and offer connection. If you think that my words can inspire or help someone else, please share them. I so appreciate you for being here on this journey.
