From journals to posts
Going beyond a draft
There comes a time when sitting on a mountain of lessons learned is a selfish act. I often tell myself if I had known 10 years ago what I now know, I would have saved myself a great deal of time, energy, heartache, and money.
I’ve shifted away from a “competent/unaware” square and settled into the “competent/aware” space. Like millions before me who shared what they’ve learned with their communities, I’m writing for mine.
My work for the last two decades has been confined to handwritten pages in journals, drawings in sketchbooks when the words could not come out, and hundreds of unpublished posts on blogging sites. I couldn’t see why I’d put anything out in the public domain when I wasn’t sit-down-and-listen-up years old. Having spent the past few years almost exclusively in the mentoring and managing spaces however, I’ve come to understand that I had lived at least three lives so far, and my time in the sharing circle has come.
The time has come.
