“Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear.”
― Meg Cabot
As I have begun to consolidate my thoughts swirling around my head, wanting to put pen to paper - or words to keyboard? - I had been stifled by the concern that my words, my thoughts, my feelings would be misconstrued to a negative connotation toward L.
I'm beginning to realize that I can't let that fear continue to stifle me. Not, at least, if I intend to act on my blog title. If I intend to be brave. Be happy. Live fully.
I realize there is a difference between blunt honesty and tact, and I will try to always be mindful of this as I share my thoughts. But I must be true to myself. These are my life lessons and my growing moments.
Please take them as you will: learn from them, ignore them, whatever your fancy. This is as much for me to get thoughts out, learn, and move forward. If you happen to enjoy my stupid quips (I promise not all posts will be serious), or learn something along the way - added bonus. But don't come here looking to read in between the lines or with a vindictive nature. I have no intention of badmouthing him. He is a great man and I will always care for him. I own my experiences and lessons and mistakes, as I know he does his. This blog is *my* brave new adventure. My new chapter. I hope you will join me as I move forward now, on my own.
