Why I Am Here

I used to hide my writings.  Even on Facebook, I would only show my writings to a select few as I knew others wouldn’t appreciate my thoughts and feelings as a lot of my views contradict mainstream social attitudes. And that’s OK. My husband who is a fan of my work told me I was wasting my time and that I needed real exposure, so he recommended I get my own website. I have another friend who told me that I need my own website as well and that I would attract people who would sincerely be interested in what I’d have to say, so he recommended me to come here.

I love to write and these two special people gave me the encouragement I needed to bring my work over here. I had been resistant to come here at first thinking who’d be interested in reading about ideas that don’t conform? Now, my writing is not for everyone and that’s alright. And I am not here to write for everyone. I am here to write for myself and the few who might appreciate it.

A big thank you to my dear husband and my friend for believing in me.

I have spent too much of my life wasting time and allowing others to define me. Now, it’s time for me to give full expression to who I am. And this is what I do.

Thank you for your support.

  1. Hello 🙂

    I’m so glad your husband supports you and encouraged you to get your own website. That is the best kind of support, those loving nudges from loved ones that bring us to uncomfortable places, yet those very places are also where we grow…

    As my way of letting you know I appreciate you and your posts, I have nominated you for the Mystery Blogger Award. I hope you know there is no obligation to participate, but I do want to highlight this fact here. There is also no time limit.

    It is of course all voluntary.

    Here is the link with all the details: https://michelesorganics.wordpress.com/2018/08/05/mystery-blogger-award-2/

    Sending you many good wishes and blessings!
    Michèle 🌸

  2. Hi Karen, I very much enjoy your writing, and your perspective and thought processes seem uncannily similar to my own, which is unusual as I rarely find this anywhere! Glad you decided to share your writing instead of hiding it away. regards, Stephen

  3. I am glad I found your writing here. I do resonate with your views. Can we connect over FB? Do you use any other social media platforms or just this website

    1. Hi Ariel, thank you for commenting. On October 9th of this year, I asked FB to permanently delete my account. It should take a month or longer for them to delete it apparently. If you would like to keep in touch, you can use the contact form. I am always happy to meet like-minds.
