Fear is inspiring me this afternoon. It’s a healthy fear–heart racing with excitement and amazement that I’m actually doing this. After encouragement from many friends, I’ve decided to start a blog. The thought of starting something new is scary, exciting, thrilling, and frightening for me all at once. What if no one reads what gets written here? What if no one understands or connects with what I write? The list of “what if” questions goes on and on. I’m afraid, but I’m doing it. Everyday challenges, activities, and interactions inspire me to write, and I’ve decided to jump in and give this blog idea a try. Shouldn’t we all do what we are inspired to do, even if we are afraid to do it? I love to write–I’ve always loved it, but once life took one path, I stopped writing and put it away. Today, I’ve decided I want to share what I write with others. Welcome to my blog. I hope what this inspired mom chooses to share here will inspire, connect with, or encourage you in some way.
