Today marks the 3 month anniversary for myspokenheart here in the blog-o-sphere. I am surprised that it has only been 3 months. It feels like it has been so much longer. Blogging for me was a very scary idea in the beginning, but I have met some wonderful people… some I would even call friends… they have become very special to me… and I never knew that sharing the written word could be so freeing, I think I have fallen in love with it…
It is like I have found a missing piece in my life puzzle. I know there are many, many more pieces yet to find, but this is an amazing step in the right direction. It is like trying to complete a puzzle that has been removed from the box, put in a plastic bag and mixed up. And to make it more difficult you have never seen the picture of what it’s supposed to look like. So you start by putting together all the outer edges first. You know the four corners and all the flat edged pieces. That is the foundation of your puzzle.
Now you have to sort the pieces based on colors and textures. You start to try and put them together. But you still have no idea what the final picture looks like. You start to find small sections that fit together but you are not sure where in the puzzle they actually fit. You can only put them in rough proximities of where you think they may go.
This puzzle represents your life. You start with a foundation. That foundation, the edges of the puzzle, is the basis of who you are. The basis of your personality, the building blocks. The areas you fit together are lessons learned throughout life, but you aren’t really sure what the point of the lessons are or how they fit. How do they contribute to your personality? Just as you aren’t sure how the sections of puzzle fit into the final picture. But as you put more and more sections together the picture becomes more and more clear.
I have my foundation, I have large sections pieced together, but I am not yet sure how they all fit together, and I am sure that a few of the pieces may have been misplaced. But I am working on it, I have found one misplaced piece, one that I didn’t realize was a key piece, and I am excited to see what my final picture will look like. I am eager to find out what other misplaced pieces I will find and to see how and where they fit in.
I have in my life found other pieces along the way leading up to this point, but it seems I only know that now, as I am able to look back. I truly believe that this point in my life is pivotal. It is the turning point. And I hope that all of you can find yourselves in this place too because well… it’s pretty cool.
