I’ve been thinking and thinking about how to put all these ideas I have for blog posts into my blog….and then I realized it was time to start another series. And then the question became, what series? What should I name it? What will it be about?
Then it hit me.
I write best about what troubles me, what inspires me, what hurts/has hurt me, and what allows me to ramble.
Also, recently I’ve had a lot of younger girls around me just starting college, and as someone on their way out…I can’t help but feel nostalgic, but also at peace with a lot of the 3 year journey that has brought me to this point today. You see, they have no idea what they’re about to embark on. No clue, what they’re gonna go through. Neither do I, because everyone is different. BUT I felt as if some things might be learned if I share some of the lessons that I’ve learned these past few years.
NOT just any lessons though.
The HARD lessons.
The lessons that have made my heart break, and my heart ache. The lessons that molded me and whipped me into the shape I’m in now. And although everyone’s journey is different, and the “best 4 years of your life!” will look different to every young college freshman no matter how many times adults around them say it… I think it’s important to be open and honest about the hard stuff.
Now I will say, I don’t think this’ll be a series just for those young girls. My hope is that in each entry about a different lesson, anyone and everyone can gain something. That’s the goal right? Reflecting, and learning together.
I’m not perfect, nor will I ever pretend to be or try to be…but I think I’ve grown the most by sharing pain instead of hiding it. I’ve grown more by working through things with folk than tucking it away inside. And so this is what this new series will be about.
I hope you enjoy it, feel free to email me suggestions at any time : firstname.lastname@example.org
Be on the look out for the first post in a few days from now.
