This image sums up the blog: out of the dark can come inspiration, that aha moment and the creative momentum for change. We all need some where to go for inspiration and my wish is that in its own small way this blog will offer that.
The blog is a place on the website for articles about a range of subjects related to alternative approaches to life. We are naturally drawn to that ‘glow in the dark’, so you are invited to take your place round the camp fire, feel welcomed and join in.
What’s offered here then is another form of support – for ideas, thoughts and experiences that aim to provide you with somewhere to come when you need to connect, to find a new perspective and to share with like minds. Though sharing is always a personal choice, know that your participation will always be valued.
The power of blogging
One of the things that has inspired me this year has been writing. Whilst this has included keeping a journal and producing poetry on a more regular basis; there has been nothing quite like setting oneself the deadline of producing a piece for potential readers and sticking to it. This focused writing has been one of the most helpful things that I could have done to understand and develop my own sense of the contribution that alternative approaches are able to make – to improve and nurture our physical, mental and emotional states.
What’s to come?
The blog is a space for sharing ideas, thoughts and experiences both from myself and other voices – through bringing you curated content and inviting guest bloggers to write articles.
Rather than just being another set of ‘how tos’, the blog is intended to be a reflection upon the challenges that we often face in life and ways that we might be able to overcome, adjust or in some way remain as balanced as we can, despite them. So whilst some of these posts will be be based upon my own experiences, there will also be plenty embracing the perspectives of others.
Will you engage too?
I would very much like to receive your thoughts and comments. Without this interaction I can offer a particular perspective of course, but it will be so much more meaningful if you are able to contribute too – and of course disagree (politely) by all means. Your contributions also keep the blog vibrant, giving us the opportunity to ‘spark’ ideas off each other.
