“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” -Laozi
It has been on my mind to start writing a blog for a long time now and, until today, I have never even made it to step one. To be honest, I feel intimidated by this undertaking. What am I going to say? Who am I even writing to?
There is no definitive answer to the latter question, and I struggle with that. It is hard to know what to say when I don’t know who I am saying it to. But I realized today that there is one member of my audience who I do know: me.
It could be that no one else ever reads this blog. It could be that a small handful of people I know read it. It could be that millions of total strangers read it. I have no idea. But I do know that I will come back and read these entries in the future. So I am going to start by writing to myself, and I invite you (whoever you are) to read along as well!
And that, my friend, is the first step on this journey.
