Personal Reflection & Advice

About a month back I had made a promise to myself to write a little something every day, even if it was bad, even if it was just thoughts. Because creators must create, and practice makes perfect. And because it felt good. Because it felt right. So I wrote some very thoughtful pieces, just thinking about where I was in my life. What I had gone through, and where I was trying to go. I think thats a process we all go through. The ups and downs of finding self. When we are teenagers discovering things for the first time, to our twenties as we build who we are as adults, to our 50’s and midlife crisis wondering how so much has gotten away from where we wanted to be. To our late grandparent years reflecting on where the time has gone and truely looking at who you ended up being just through simple experiences. Some of the pieces I wrote were damn good, and yes I do say so myself. And some sucked. But I share the good ones, just looking for someone to tell me I still had the Gift. They all loved what had to say, and many were thoughtful when I was done. And I was overjoyed because I had made them think, to reevaluate, and that was the whole goal. And so my grandmother told me, when I shared with her, she told me to share with as many as I could. She said people don’t talk about their progress in the moment, as they endure it, as they figure it out. They only remebered later what it was like, once they have overcome it. She said to be a voice from one young person to the next. From one just floundering young person to the next. And maybe we might have insight for others. Maybe this blog can help as many as possible, and maybe we can figure it out together. So I am going to write to you, for me, and for you all, every week. Sometimes it will be stupid. And sometimes it will be brilliant. And I want to hear ya’lls voices too. The old people , you know what they say? They say we are stuck in our electronics, that there is no community anymore. Let’s show them our voice.
I want to hear all your voices and I want to hear about everything. I do not care what color your skin is, or what walk of life. It doesn’t matter if our cultures differ, or even if we disagree. I value your life experiences, your thoughts, your feelings. I hope you enjoy mine. So key in as we talk about everything under the sun. Lets blow it up! Lets live it up!

  1. I’ve been writing from my own sense of inspiration for a long time, since my early 20s, and it’s only over the last couple of years that my writing has improved to the point where I actually enjoy reading it. Persistence has paid off, at least in personal gratification. Now if it could just pay off in that other way. 🙂
