Personal blogging is supposedly the most common type of blog. Coming from an environment whereby private issues regarding one’s self were not considered used in conversation outside of family, it has not only been difficult to start blogging also to bring friends closer than arms reach. Please do not confuse this with shyness, or being ill at ease around others. My outspokenness is well known. It is just difficult to communicate personal issues. Please bear with me as this near fatal (just in my head) attempt at blogging proceeds.
It is a gorgeous day today! The sun is shining, Michigan moods are basically happier, and I am filled with hopes, prayers and the joy of renewal of life that spring brings. While following the walkways in the park, thoughts of past footprints, crossroads and future routes overwhelmed my soul. There are days I wonder if the courage to avoid entrapments and be receptive to new directions, walkways and information has been replaced with being complacent and knowing the road. I am one of those fool-hardy people who enjoys the “journey”. Like a walk leading no where, sometimes you need to wonder away from the path, recognize influences of the past, take the qualities of a good map and search for the unknown.
For my having a firm belief in the Creator, lends way to the thought of what it means to really live. When you are unemployed, inexperienced, non-degreed and fifty it is difficult to always believe that new trails can be blazed to construct an innovative global positioning system! I am being forced and called into change, which is the only way some of us transform. So, here goes a new adventure.
I salute everyone who commits to change and makes it happen!
