I was a very a shy little girl and friends and family know that the circumstances of life have sent me more inward than outward. Privacy and solitude have been the hallmarks of my life. My biggest desire was to fit in, blend in and never stand out.
Now, in writing my stories and this blog I have exposed myself. Taking this risk has been a long time coming but it is time for me to actually let this part of myself be seen. I have so much passion inside of me and I have been very afraid to let it out and seldom let it be seen by others.
The fear was if I showed anyone my true self they might not love or accept me. Wow – that is hard to even write down but it is the absolute truth! Now I am a bit braver and the more I discover about myself the more I am willing to reveal.
