Well it's been a while, hasn't it? In the last year so much has changed and as much as I'd like to dedicate this to an update of all the rocks I've been hiding under, I think it's best to just say that it's good to be back.
For those of you who are new to my blog, I am a dedicated rambler of thoughts, ideas, and words that sometimes form sentences. For those of you returning, welcome back old friend. I'm intending to use this blog to talk about my usual nerdy stuff, writing, and most importantly spreading ideas that I can't fully express on my Twitter account. What can I say? I'm greedy and need more characters for the vast majority of my ideas.
I'm sitting here, a pink quilt draped over my lap and a dog snoozing in the sunlight pouring onto the couch beside me. I'm lucky. I'm thankful. Ultimately, I'm saying thank you to all of you because I have finally found direction in my creative life for the first time in a long while.
Twitter has changed my life. I now host a weekly writing chat (#WritersPatch at 10:00 a.m. on Sundays) and I've met so many amazing people I couldn't have ever dreamed of knowing. I'm actually making youtube videos; something I've always dreamed of doing but was too afraid to try. I'm happy and it's because I'm finding my purpose. My goal is to encourage each and every artist I encounter to reach and not be afraid. I spent too much time not following my dreams because I was scared. Now reality kicked me in the a** and told me to get going. You need to get going too. Take a chance. Create without apologizing. Don't be afraid to be happy with yourself. Take pride. Be bold. Share kindness.
I promise future blogs will be far more sensible and formulated. These were just some things I needed to untangle from my mind. Hope you didn't mind.
What are you going to do this week to be bold?
