Back when I first started and up until a few years ago, I was fearless. I used to be able to write posts easily and hit publish without worrying about it. That’s different now. I’m not sure exactly when or how but things changed. I got quiet. I stopped posting. I took down my site. I deleted a lot of things and destroyed physical journals. I started communicating online almost exclusively through Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
I wish I hadn’t done that.
I’ve been thinking a lot about how I might get back to feeling comfortable sharing my thoughts again. I’ve missed having my own space to publish things. My site is my own space, as opposed to a profile that’s owned by some other people. That’s fine too but it shouldn’t be all I’ve got.
For now, my plan is to just publish things here and on my other blog. I’m going to try not to overthink myself back into silence. I’ll work on finding my voice again.
I’ll remember how to do this in time.
