The Power of Words

My mind and tongue are heavy with the all of the things I wish to say. Personal things. Surface things. But I don't want my words to be just flippant responses to the day or vents about the challenges of living out of suitcase in someone else's house. (Although I may need to have that discussion on here soon...) Or publicize my deep dark secrets about my thoughts on motherhood.  I haven't quite figured out what I want my blog to be. Is it my personal journal? Am I writing to an audience? Are my personal thoughts on something other than moving or military life going to be relevant to the small number of people that read this? (And does it matter?)

The fact is, whether solely for me or for you that read, I need my words. I want them to be used for good. That good may just be for the purpose of cleansing the cluttered space in my brain or there may be someone (even one!) person that can relate to what I write and they can breathe finally, someone else feels the same way I do. But I believe in the power of words. Words that express a purpose and make a change. Big or small, we all write for some reason: we have something to say and we want to be heard. 

If you are a reader of my little space, I would love for you to leave your blog address in the comments so I can read what you have to say. Let me know who you are! Social media can sometimes feels like everyone is talking and nobody is really listening. Let's build a community of support and let's listen to each other words.

Hi Heather,

I have found your blog via Springpad a few days ago and read all your entries since then. You are a true inspiration to me! I can relate to every topic you write about. I am a new military wife, feel like left all alone in a world since I left home. Currently living in the Philippines.
My blog is: http://cinderella-mystory.blogspot.com/
I choose the name for the blog, because I felt like Cinderella, when I have met my husband on his previous post, got married and gave up everything to start a new life.
Still learning how to write a blog, and what to post.
I absolutely love todays's post! It even made me cry.
Thank you for making my days better and for giving me strength far away from home!
