I have started “the first blog post” several times, and I have finally decided that it’s just going to be what it’s going to be. So often in my life, I want to appear put together, clever, or funny, when the reality is that those moments are quite rare, and the real stuff of life is messier. So, I finally realized that if I ever want to actually start keeping track of things, I just have to get over it and jump in.
That reminds me of some of the reasons I’ve decided to start a blog in the first place – to have a record of important events in my life, the little things that make me laugh so hard that my stomach hurts, the memories of high and low times, and how God has brought me through them all. I want to know who I’m becoming, and what it is that makes me that way. I want to share the things that inspire me, and connect with people I love.
Life is about growth, and if I wait for the perfect topic or segue, it will never come, and I’ll always be wishing that I had started keeping track of things a long time ago, and so it begins…
Also…I wanted to use the word segue. And I have. Twice.
