My first entry = new territory!

When I was encouraged to start a blog by friends, I had no idea where to start. I tend to be a bit more of a private person and so writing about myself would definitely be a stretch and a bit awkward for me. However, I love to write, so a blog wasn’t too far out there. I started dreaming, thinking, and envisioning what this blog could be, as I knew I needed to write. What do I love to do? Ask questions. Tell stories. Not my stories usually (learning to open up more!), but other people’s stories.

I have amazing people in my life. I am actually really blessed to know so many people from all different avenues of life, who live all over the place. They are treasures in my life and I have learned from them by just watching them do life, asking questions and from them speaking into my life. So…I started dreaming; why not include their stories in my blog? They are inspirations to me and I know they would be inspiration to others. We all go through highs and lows in life. We have a story to tell. For some reason though, we tend to hide the lows, the struggles, difficult parts of our journey. If we share the wonderful times as well as the difficult times, we have the ability to encourage, challenge and enlighten someone else’s journey! So let me share some stories, some food for thought, and words of love and hope. I will share from my heart as well, as I have some experiences and lessons that I have learned from.

I am excited to introduce you to friends of mine, from all walks of life and who have so much to offer this world!

So here I go! I may only have 2 or 3 people that read this and I am ok with that! To be able to share stories that might have an impact, may challenge and or encourage just one person is a pure joy! Sharing our stories brings us together, to know that everyone has struggles; everyone deals with hardships, joys, and life adventures. It brings us all on the same level, same playing field! Communication is one of our greatest tools.

Find the joy in today!
