Isn’t it interesting that a blog all about Living Authentically is written by someone who chooses to remain anonymous?
I am a woman who also happens to be a wife to a handsome husband, a mother to three young kids, a physician, a runner, and just as importantly, an avid blogger. I started blogging at least 5 years ago and back then I was never anonymous. It was difficult, however, to say what was really on my mind. It was almost impossible to express what I was really thinking, feeling, and experiencing, without feeling vulnerable or fearing criticism. So after two years of blogging as “the real me,” I started an anonymous blog where I talked about everything and anything that I wanted to say. For three and a half years, I opened up to blogging in a way I never had before, and I discovered a whole new way of living: vulnerably and authentically.
How liberating, and therapeutic, and human.
This blog will become a new space for me to explore an authentic approach to living. Authenticity is not always easy to come by in today’s world, especially when we are accustomed to living without it. For that reason alone, I have decided to close another chapter in my blogging career and begin anew.
I look forward to a time in the future when anonymity is not the only way that people can be authentic.
