It's been awhile...

It isn't a lack of things to say - I don't believe there's a day goes by where I don't have a wealth of words to share. No, it is the challenge of the fit. The "fit" is getting the words out on a regular basis and climbing over the wall of self-confidence to share my insights.

I'm no exception; I'm sure we all have a voice, a word to share with one another. As our world slowly moves into a value system where humanity is the asset we cannot live without, we must learn to value, first ourselves and then everyone else. We don't have to spend years "getting to know 'me'" before we extend a helping hand to our neighbor. And if one examines their life, you would probably find you're doing so already.

I love living the life of a "bringer of light." I find, it's a role I've been serving in since childhood. There are times when the challenge is to put a different color on the light (truth, compassion, honesty, creativity, ingenuity) to make it palatable, but simply doing so is just as much the challenge. And yet, I continue; I share what insights I've experienced and my unique perspective on life. There are times when it feels like I'm throwing a drop of water into a great stream, but toss it I do; perhaps the very words or an image will touch the lives of someone and alter their perception and bring hope.
