Introduction


Hello, thanks for checking out my blog!
I started this blog for two main reasons: 

1) Because I want to return the inspiration
I used to think blogging was self-centered; what's so special about my thoughts that I need to share them with the whole world? Who really needs to hear what I have to say? However, I am constantly being inspired by other people online, whether it be through a blog, a video, or even just a simple comment. And while I would NEVER claim that the things I write will be inspirational to others, I realize that the people I am inspired by are able to inspire me because they share. And I think sharing ideas is extremely important! So I have decided to return the favor and share back. Will my thoughts actually turn out to be inspirational to even a single person? Perhaps not, but I am willing to give it a shot.

2) Because I don't want to forget
Sometimes an inspired thought comes into my head, as I'm sure happens with everyone, that really changes the way I see the world. Maybe it's triggered by something I've read, or seen, or heard from someone else. These inspirations can be life-changing...for about five minutes, or five days, or even five months. And then I'm on to the next thing and forget that I ever had that life-changing inspiration, until it comes back again in a different phase of life. Or never comes back at all! Some of these inspirations I really do not want to forget, so I decided to put them here. That way, when I forget that the Lord will always be there to fight for me, or that expectations lead to disappointment, or that prayer is essential, I will have this blog to return to to rediscover those life-changers.

xx,
Leanna

  1. Thank you, Leanna! You expressed beautifully what used to scare me: that writing about myself was boring to other people, or worse a self centered rant.

    I have found that this is not the case. I mean, only I can say whether I am writing selfishly. But it is definitely an inspiration that other people want to read what I write.

    Secondly, I totally agree about remembering. My blog might inspire other people, but it also inspires me. haha! But seriously, sometimes I look back at things I wrote and think "Wow! I used to be smart!"

    Reminds me of the quote from Amazing Grace:
    William Wilberforce: I'm here to seek your advice.
    John Newton: When you were a child, you used to ask God for advice.
    WW: Then I grew up.... And grew foolish.
    JN: And now?
    WW: Now... slowly, my faith is returning.
    JN: How slowly?
    WW: No bolts of lightning.
    JN: God sometimes does His work with gentle drizzle, not storms. Drip... drip... drip.

    1. Thank you, Alison! It is encouraging to hear that you do not feel self-centered when you write on your blog, and also that you do look back and appreciate the insights you had or learned!

      Love that quote from Amazing Grace...I need to watch that again now! Thank you again for your comments.
