Its been a while since I posted. Life got a bit ahead of me in the past six weeks and I just barely kept up. In that time I came to realize how important and powerful honesty can be. It was one of those humbling life moments that reminds you, you can’t know it all, that in fact sometimes it is better that you live in the curiosity of questions you don’t yet fully know the answers to. Learning to appreciate the journey, understanding that those questions will find answers that will only lead to more questions and discoveries.
In the past six weeks my outlook has changed, my goals have shifted. I've had to take a hard look at my life and ask myself what I truly want. What I found, was that what I want has remained very constant. I want to help people. I want to help people so that this world can be full of more courageous empathetic forward thinkers.
Now I don't expect to accomplish this in any grandiose way. Rather, I hope that by sharing my journey through this blog that others will find inspiration and courage to follow their own paths and be the change they want to see in the world. Perhaps in this way I will leave this world a better place then when I came into it.
There is nothing about my journey that I believe is exceptional but there is plenty of wisdom I think I can cull from it. It may be your basic everyday sort of wisdom for some but for others it might be full of epiphanies. In any case this is just a long-winded way of saying I'm going to start writing more. But more specifically I'm going to start writing more about the fact that I've been diagnosed with a chronic incurable condition. A condition that has shaped my life for several years now and will continue to shape it into the future. A condition known as Fibromyalgia.
I hope that by sharing my journey that I am able to provide a voice to those who are like me but more importantly a voice that reminds us all of the humor, the tragedy, the hope, the opportunity, and the beauty that life can provide us. It is true that life is short, that it throws us curve balls we never saw coming. In the end it is up to us to find a way to catch those curve balls and make the most of what we have been taught by life.
…Its about the journey…
Hi, I'm Liz. I like to write about life and the wisdom I cull from it. I use words and images to inspire empathy and connection with each other and the world.
