Welcome to my blog

Congratulations and welcome to friends, family and others who have found something of interest in my blog. The reason that I have created this blog is to share some of my experiences regarding my own journey of writing and publishing my autobiography. I am really excited and motivated about this whole process. I hope that what I write about is interesting to you and thank you for your encouragement and support.

The roles we play

How often does what you think, say and do, turn out to be the same?

For me, I know that isn’t very often.

I wish it happened more often because I really do want to be someone that walks the walk and talks the talk.  Though sometimes, no matter how hard you try it just doesn’t seem to match up!

Why is this?

Why can’t I just be the one consistent person all the time?  Why can’t I always be the same person that I really truly love? 

Often our lives are so full of things to do, places to be and people to see that we that we just don’t realise that our life has just become a big masquerade.   Full of drama and acting and masks that we wear.

Now sometimes it feels nice and safe to be able to hide behind a mask and keep the world at bay.  From behind our mask a multitude of excuses LIE.

We hide our shame, our pain, our hurts, our grief, our loss, our guilt, our fear, our anger, our bitterness and our resentment.    

Unfortunately, this can only mask the pain for a short period.  Sometimes instead of hiding behind all of our masks, we need to actually FACE the world.

So next time you look in the mirror, who do you want to see looking back at you?
