I have spent a lot of my life getting lost in my thoughts. I have a lot of them.
I have also spent a lot of my life reading, and wondering how people put their thoughts into words. How authors can create a single sentence that takes your breath away, or puts your life into perspective, or gives you hope. I struggled for years to find my “writer’s voice”, a voice that people would listen to, that was captivating and concise. Until one day, I realized, my writer’s voice is the one inside my head. Unfiltered, raw, and ALWAYS talking.
I started by making a list of topics I would like to write about. These ranged from “Things you can do from the comfort of your room to combat depression”, to “Why you should buy real pajamas”, and everything in between. It wasn’t long before I realized I had a lot to say. And as I read through my compiled list, soon over 50 ideas, I could hear my writer’s voice becoming her own.
I have hopes and dreams for this blog, of course. I hope the content is relatable. I hope my words have meaning. I hope it makes someone out there smile or laugh or cry. But most of all, I think my biggest hope is that it makes someone feel less alone.
I have spent a lot of my life getting lost in my thoughts. I have a lot of them. But if there is one thing I have learned from all of this introspective thinking, it is that no, I am not the only one thinking this particular thing. In fact, I think if I were to say this aloud, a lot of people would relate. And so, mind-chatter was born…but it’s a working title.
