No Longer Silent

I'm what you might call..."non-confrontational". It's in my nature. I don't like to ruffle feathers. I've always been naturally quiet and generally say less than I need to.  That being said, I'm no longer as I have been. I think I might even be Maybe? Well, I've definitely been doing some changing. Growing. And it's probably about time. I just turned the big two-seven. On the cusp of "late twenties". Yeesh.

Anyway, my point. The past few years have basically forced me into situations where I couldn't react in the same way as I have in the past. It wasn't so much that I was going outside of my comfort zone. It was more like my comfort zone was completely yanked out from under me, often finding myself floundering. But I guess I should be grateful, since it truly has helped me grow. "Build character", I guess you could say.

The reason I mention this is that there's a lot I want to say on this blog. I'm still the type who thinks more than she says, so I do A LOT of thinking. I also read a lot and keep up on certain topics with the help of social media. When I'm working and such, these topics roll around in my head and I feel the desire to share my thoughts and feelings about said topics. So I'm going to. It won't be a complete shift in theme, but occasionally, the subject may be more serious than my recent blog posts. And now I'm not afraid to "ruffle feathers". Part of the new and emboldened "me". Maybe the subject will be touchy or uncomfortable. Maybe it'll be upsetting. I don't know. I'm just giving a bit of a warning so it's not such a huge shock.

There are quite a few causes that I'm passionate about. I think it's time I add my voice to them. New blog posts coming soon. Get ready for my Fight Face.
