Freedom to Speak

In the news and online lately, much is being discussed about freedom of speech. I am grateful as a writer I can speak my mind and instantly communicate via this blog or other social media posts. It’s truly self-expression revolution.

Sharing thoughts, feelings and impressions through public media has become the way in which the world communicates.

I had a reader really enjoy my post from yesterday.

But, for that same post, I also had a reader tell me that others ‘may not care’ what I have to say when I write about my own personal process.

My first thought was: ‘Wow, if you aren’t interested in what I have to say, read something else.’

But then I reflected and thought more about that comment.

Because of who I am and what I do in the world, I have to convey my feelings and often share my process.

This is how I contribute light to the world: By being transparent.

In a word where so many things are secret, hidden, unspoken, condemned, and judged, this way of sharing brings in light. It lets others know they are not alone.

I am transparent in my writing, my work and my art, all of which I feel are blessed and supported by a large community who care about what I have to say and do.

It’s important to include all voices, that is what freedom of speech is about. Some people care about what I do and say, others don’t. Such is life.

Learning to trust my voice, I offer it for those who want to hear. That’s what freedom of speech us and I am grateful to be a woman living in a country that has this right.
