When I decided to join in the experience of blogging and then found this site began to think about what to say. What I realized was how much I would need to change to actually register and enter this. Clicking on that button represented a kind of internal change. I often think about doing some little thing, like sending a card, but life is busy and I ignore those little urges too often.
What I have realized I need to change most is my idea of how unimportant I am; how little I impact the larger world. I believed that those little things might be nice but weren't that important. My heart knows differently. I may not be able to stop a war or feed the hungry masses but I can say thank you. I can make a difference in one person's life by taking the time to smile at a stranger, send a card to a friend, or do any of the little things my heart asks me to do.
Change is often about taking a risk. Writing this blog is that kind of risk. Maybe I don't have anything to say that rates as important but then again maybe it isn't what I say that is important but that I am willing to say it. So instead of writing pages and pages of thoughts that come to me and keeping those thoughts inside a file cabinet that will never be opened I am going to share those thoughts through this new communication tool. I am going to allow myself to change. I am going to share and find out who I am.
