As you may have noticed, it has been a minute since my last post. My previous post asked you to answer 5 questions about your experience with my blog. I wanted to know if my words fulfilled a purpose beyond me clearing space in my brain.
Here are the results of that post:
I received 2 verbal responses. Those responses were from two of my biggest cheerleaders, so I wasn’t surprised to hear from them.
That’s it! Just two. No more, no less. Maybe there were too many questions. Perhaps 3 questions would have presented a less intimidating task. As I watched my ego slink off into a corner to pout, I spent quite a bit of time trying to figure out how to get the information I was seeking. That lead me to wondering why I write. I have frequently stated that I write this blog for Me, and I most definitely do.
I write to remember and reflect on my thoughts and feelings about a particular event in my life. I use it to ponder new a concept or point of view I come across. The Edge of Fitting In… exists so I can remind myself that nothing or no one is perfect, and it confirms that I am still a work in progress. I write this blog because I believe that when we express ourselves, that expression transforms into energy. Energy is… … EVERYTHING. So, I contribute to the Ether with what I hope is a mostly positive impact. We need more of that in this world.
While the above is true, it I recently learned that I’ve been telling myself and you a half truth.
(Here comes the other half of the truth)
Recently it was revealed to me that I also write this blog for YOU!
That revelation came in the form of a support call at work. While assisting a user that I know is one of my regular readers, I apologized for not having posted recently. She told me that it was okay because she frequently re-reads her favorite posts. She went on to explain that her dad had recently died, and my blog posts helped her deal with that loss. Externally, I, hopefully was expressing my gratitude and joy that something I did was able to help her heal. Internally I was a jumble of emotions! I was overwhelmed, shocked, elated but mostly puzzled. How could my written words help her heal from the loss of a loved one? As our conversation continued, I learned that in addition to providing laughter, my words, or better stated her interpretation of my words provided her with metaphors to fit her situation and aid in healing. It was really a light bulb moment for me.
So today I can tell you that I write this blog for me, and I also write it for you. I write to encourage you to laugh at yourself and the world we live in. I write to let you know that you aren’t the only one living on The Edge of Fitting In… (see how I did that!!🤣🤣). I write to spark those special memories, events and feelings in you that make your heart sing. I want to help you find that common thread that holds us together. My hope is that if I share my words with you, and you share them with others, together we find ourselves embarking upon conversations that are capable of making us laugh, cry, smile and dream. Those conversations can bring us closer to understanding and accepting each other.
By speaking what is in my heart I strive to be impactful through humor and storytelling. I hope to enlighten, perhaps educate or maybe even inspire you. I know what my words mean to me. I have learned that I don’t know what they will mean to you. I have decided that I can only put them here in the Ether for you to experience. I will keep writing for both of us. I will continue to encourage you to leave a comment or two. Even if I don’t always hear from you or see you, I will trust that you are there, with me on the Edge of Fitting In…
Thank you for being you.
