A tonal shift

Please note: If you like the content on this page, many of the pieces on this site have been edited, updated, merged, consolidated, or entirely rewritten (as necessary) for inclusion into my new book series (which also features entirely new content).

If you’ve sensed a slight shift in tone of some of my posts lately, I can explain why thusly (off the top of my head, so paraphrasing):

I don’t always enjoy sticking my neck out, showing vulnerability, or openly challenging people or their beliefs, but when I do, it’s because I want to grow and learn from the experience as much as I want to help people grow and learn from the experience.

And finally, one of my favorite quotes…

“If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve gotten.”

Writing about stuff you _think_ is one thing. Writing about stuff you _experience_ is another.

I prefer real-life experience and the lessons it provides over relying entirely on theories, quotes, and folk tales.

Beyond things that are simply common sense, if you don’t try something that’s new for you, and simply rely on other people’s results, how will you ever discover if their results and their conclusions are in line with your own?

No two people who share an experience will ever describe it in exactly the same way.

It’s good to take risks (within reason) and try new things.

If that’s not a vital part of living a well rounded life leading to personal growth, I don’t know what is.

*And if you’ve ever taken something I’ve written about personally, it isn’t.

The only people I’ve specifically written posts for are my family (a few they’ve never acknowledged) and my unborn children (many).

And someone I wanted to help through their depression. And another I didn’t want to be so hard on themselves.
