i think. a lot. for this reason i write. a lot. it’s a main staple of my sanity. i’ve relied on social media for many years to get my thoughts out. i have this need to share, be seen, heard. and while i often share what’s in my heart and how i’m internalizing life, it’s censored, of course. we all censor. we all show our best sides to the world.

if you’ve made your way here, thank you for caring enough to see what i’m up to. i’ve taken a break from social media and am hoping to quit altogether. for some reason it’s scary. but in being afraid and doing it anyway, i have faith that i will learn and grow.

i am a human being having a human experience on this earth in this lifetime. i want my life to matter. i want to look back and know that i’ve made some small difference in the world. i feel like part of my gift is the ability to see things differently. and i best articulate through writing. so i’ll keep writing in my personal journal, because i have to. and i’ll share some of those thoughts here. i will try to censor less, because i think it’s important. i’ve titled this online journal  P E R F E C T L Y   I M P E R F E C T,  because i am. and i am done with shame.

i assume if you’re reading, i might resonate with you in some way. if so, please leave me a comment on any post … let me know where/how i can find you – email, text, a website/blog. would love to connect, have a conversation about things that matter.
