January 3rd, 2015 was a day I remember well. I sat down at my desk with a new blog to be developed, and wrote what was on my heart. One year later I find myself a different person with the same passion: Writing what’s on my heart.
I didn’t quite know what I was going to write about. In fact, I was rather lost about the direction I wanted to go in. As time went on, it became clear to me that I had a passion for mental health. I had dealt with depression before and it so happened that I was dealing with it at the time of Confessions’ beginning. I took my pain and wrote about it. Writing became my therapy.
What lingers within these pages is my journey through 2015. It’s been up, it’s been down. It’s been honest, it’s been hard. I’ve lost hope and I’ve seen the cross of Christ. Through everything my hope and goal was to create a refuge; a place of honesty.
Bringing to Light that which is Hidden
I wish to open doors for people. Doors that typically stay closed and its contents remain hidden. I have realized that there are so many people hurting in this world. I don’t have all of the answers (even though I pretend) and I never will. I only want to walk with people through their pain. I want to cry with them, hurt with them, and rejoice with them. I have seen the pain that life can bring but I have also seen the peace that God gives. He has been so incredibly faithful in my life and to not share that would be a grave error.
So, one year has gone by. I’m most definitely a different person but ultimately I am still me. Through this next year I wish to grow and I can’t wait to experience life with you all. Here’s to a year past and many, many more to come.
