My silence on this blog the last few weeks had some of you concerned.
C’mon, Brenda. What’s wrong?
There was a time when I had to have a constant stream of ideas and motivational thoughts in this online “diary” of sorts. All, of course, intended to inspire and uplift.
But as I grow, I feel led to choose my words more carefully.
This blog is a joy to write and to connect with you? It’s wonderful.
But recent events in our country rendered me silent. And in the silence, I could be still and listen. And think; learn.
I didn’t want to speak, because I didn’t want to mis-speak.
Other voices needed to be heard, and boy, I listened. What I heard in the silence shook me from the complacency of my upbringing and I think I’m starting to “get” it.
This is a pivotal time in our nation and I want to be on the right side of history.
I don’t want to live by default or on auto-pilot.
Turmoil? It’s a good thing if it causes us to question ourselves and leads to growth.
I haven’t arrived, but in the silence, the seeds for growth have been sown. More on that here:
I wish you and yours good health, much resilience, and an abundance of love.
