In all honesty, I’ve spent a lot of time deciding what my internet platform should be. It’s not easy trying to express the various facets of myself, all of which are supremely important to me in different ways. It’s come down to this simple question: what pieces of myself are worth sharing? I’d like to say all of them, but I don’t have the time or energy to pursue every avenue, to further every single passion. I love too many things and I want to be too many things in this lifetime, which I suppose is both a blessing and a curse, since it has definitely been the facilitator of some great internal dissension.
After some careful consideration, I’ve come to the conclusion that all of this warring with myself is futile. Seriously, it doesn’t matter. I might as well share what’s on my mind unapologetically, and if I’m trying to fulfill a certain image just to build an audience, I really don’t see a point anymore in even establishing a public persona. The world doesn’t need that, since it has enough inauthenticity. I can’t move people if I’m more consumed in viewership than content. I can’t move people if I write what I think others want to hear. That won’t get either of us anywhere!
So here I am, in my own little electronic corner of the universe, talking to you about the way I wrestle with myself in terms of who I want to be for the world. And I have no clue if anyone is listening or if it matters to you. But this is me, and I hope you can find something here you resonate with. Even if it is one small phrase or one song or one piece of art, if I can strike something within you, I have done my job. That’s what this is all about.
