As Rosh Hashana (the Jewish New Year) approaches, I would like to thank you for taking the time to read my blog. When I look at this past year, I can't help but review my writings. Sometimes, I feel the temptation to change some of the wording, expression and feeling. I have to remember that life is a journey and not a destination.
Although some of my feelings, thought processes and ideas have changed over time, it would be an injustice to myself and my readers to have my blog match strictly my current state of mind. All my articles are dated and hopefully provide my readers with a map showing my experience, strength and hope. As human beings, God blessed us with feelings. Sometimes, it's anger, hurt, pain, happiness, fulfillment, love,
In Alcoholics Anonymous, they tell us when sharing to focus on "what is was like...what happened... and what it is like now." I find this very apropos to my blog.
Another line someone shared was "Paint your story, Em. The colors, textures, etc. It will come naturally, because it is true... If the tears come, so be it. You will have earned every one."
My hope is perhaps you relate to a feeling, a moment, a thought or journey in my writings and helps you to know you are not alone. Just maybe, you'll be inspired to trust others with your feelings and open up your heart. Perhaps, it might provide you with an opportunity to understand another person's struggle. Hopefully, it will make both of us better people.
May you be blessed this coming year with serenity, meaning and happiness! Le'Shana Tov and Gmar Chatima Tova!
