"My aim is to put down on paper what I see and what I feel in the best and simplest way." 

 Ernest Hemmingway 

My truth...

I believe I have spent my life hiding and then being saddened by not being seen.  I set myself up for feeling small and then blame you.  However, recently, I have been given the courage to live more honestly.  I have a new openness to show you my whole self; my personality, my sense of humor, and most importantly, my heart. It is a willingness to do that that brought me to start Naked Random Thoughts...

I have no idea what I am doing and no clue whether you will find anything I have to say interesting, insightful or helpful.  I do hope that at least one person finds something comforting in my words but the point of this whole deal is for me to be honest in how I am living.  To be accountable to myself and in turn, you.

This isn't completely altruistic - I also want to heal.  I want to stop being afraid to own my life.  My most sincere hope is that the life that I have lived and what I have learned from that life just might make a difference to someone who is suffering similarly.

May we each learn from each other and may kindness, love and authenticity prevail.
