What can you do today that you were not capable of a few years ago?
When I think back to where exactly I was 365 days ago, it never ceases to amaze me the jagged artwork that change has woven into the tapestry of my life. Each seemingly unconnected event has worked to put me exactly where I am supposed to be.
Many philosophies support the idea of a preconceived plan for everyone. I am not sure about that yet, but sometimes it seems like things fall into place in ways that you would never believe.

There are few things that I have done in life which were both restrictive and freeing all at once. Writing is one of them. After a short hiatus and much soul searching, I have found that returning to this genre is the right thing for me to do personally.
Anyone who writes their thoughts and publishes them has the hope that there will be a connection made somewhere, that someone will “get It” and understand the emotion that you were feeling and the thoughts that they provoked.

It all started so innocently, I was looking for a way to improve my personal writing and to increase the original content on my website. I was also looking for a way to write more about what I feel without a filter and to express what is going on in my mind.
