I’ve been searching my soul a lot lately.
At the beginning of the year, I set some goals. One of them was to talk to y’all three times a week. I did that, and then life got in the way. I got busy.
I lost my mojo.
I focused on one tiny category, and failed to see the mojo of my life in its totality, and to make sure the pieces were woven together efficiently. I dropped the ball on several of my other goals that are also really important.
I have so many things I want to say, to share, to spew out.
I talk about adoption and orphan care issues…because it’s a big part of who I am and what I believe is important
I talk about making a difference in the world, because a purpose outside of ourselves is critical to living a full life.
I share bits and pieces of fiction and creative writing that are just a ton of fun to write.
I even talk about, gasp, work. And how to survive as a dreamer in a dreamless environment.
But this is getting all a little bit random.
Why are we here?
My dreams are to string words together in ways that really resonate with people, and to help kids who have been abandoned, neglected, enslaved, and forgotten.
I want this to be a place where y’all feel you can relax and connect, and where somehow my words can say something that will encourage you or make you laugh, or inspire you to get up off your butt and do something, anything, to chase your dreams and make this world a better place.
I know I will never be everything to everyone. I don’t want that. But what I do want is to serve the people who come here loyally. I want to know what brings you here, and what brings you back. I want to honor where it intersects with what fuels my heart.
So I’m going to toss it out to you with a couple questions.
If you’re a regular reader at River of Thoughts, I want to hear what you think.
If you’re here for the first time, I want to hear what would inspire you to come back.
I am not fishing for compliments like “If you wrote a phone book, I would read it” Because I’m not going to write a phone book unless someone offers me a crapload of money, and insurance, and four weeks of vacation. Everyone has their price.
I really really want to know what inspires you. What leaves you craving more? Leave a comment…
