(Original photograph )
I have not written formally in months, not because I had nothing to say. But because I had too much to say.
Life has always come at me quickly. And I have been perpetually ill prepared. I have been angry. I have felt every emotion and I have not enjoyed any of them. I have been overwhelmed.
I began this blog with the the grandiose idea that we should be our own hero. We should embrace the warrior within us. I wanted to share photography. I also wanted to share strongly written words that might help someone on their journey. Looking back, it was horseshit. And mediocre at best.
Honesty helps people. Truth helps people. Not carefully worded diatribes. Real experiences no matter how ugly help others. But foremost purging myself of these pent up and locked away emotions will help me help others.
When life punches you in the mouth a couple of times and laughs, you need to consider whether a blog entitled Virago is your calling. Especially when you cannot get out of bed.
So this warrior pressed pause.
To be honest is a part of the warrior spirit. So I have decided to share the good, bad and ugly of my journey. And I have decided to stop censoring and overthinking what I publish. Come what may.
“The right word may be effective, but no word was ever as effective as a rightly timed pause.”
