Some wonder what is the point of blogging? Why let everyone in on such personal private feelings? For me, writing has always been an outlet, a way to develop my thoughts. I never claimed to be any good, but I don’t have to be. It’s my words…my feelings…my life captured on a page. It allows me to pour my feelings onto a page, set it aside and move on until I want to revisit it.
I thought about starting a blog for a long time but never had true purpose until we lost DJ. I find myself drawn to words by other people who have had similar experiences. I combed the internet for blogs and writings that spoke to me. Reading these things validated my feelings. It lets me know that what I am feeling is normal. Reading and writing for me is a way to navigate my grief. If my words on this blog help one person realize they are not alone, then the vulnerability I feel by “putting it all out there” is well worth it.
