Welcome to the inaugural post for The Blue Bird Writes. My name is Lisa and I have been writing privately for years. But now I have the courage to share those words with others, with you. Now is the time. Now. Yes, now. I am still trying to ease the fear and nervousness I have of sharing my thoughts with others in a public forum. It takes spunk and sometimes it takes throwing caution to the wind. Today, I am throwing caution to the wind.
This Blog comes from a catalyst that was initiated by a major life event that happened to me on January 22, 2013. During the past two and half years, I have tried with extreme diligence to understand why things are the way they are. I have laughed, cried, gotten mad, been grateful, hopeful, encouraged, afraid, courageous, strong, serene and I have written, sometimes for hours, just to validate all that is.
Putting pen to paper was cathartic for me on so many levels. I learned to be still and listen…listen to the whispers of my soul. Those whispers said to write and write I did. This blog is to share those writings for my own soul journey and its continued growth. It is that simple, I need to grow.
