The “Who I am and Why I’m Here” Post

It’s day 1-ish and the email said “You’re a blogger! Time to publish a post that gives readers a sense of who you are,” from WordPress.com’s Blogging University being the ever enthusiastic motivator.

I stare blankly at the email.

Let’s see…”Time to publish a post that gives readers a sense of who you are.” (Insert eye roll here) Who I am?! After 49 years on this planet, I am still trying to figure that out! Hence, the purpose of starting this blog, to find my voice…to discover…just maybe…who am I.

Giving it the old college try…

I wrote a poem the other day that may shed some light on the “Why I’m Here.” I call it On Writing

I write because
I need to
I have to
I must

I write to be
healed
whole
happy

I write because
it is therapy
it is discovery
it is creativity

I write to be
free
safe
focused

I write because
I need to find me
I need to know me
I need to transform me

I write to be
authentically me
