I am not sure how many of you read any of my old posts or really keep up with me at all for that matter, but if you do you’ll notice that I deleted everything. I’ve always loved to write. Recently due to a lot of self reflection, I have come to realize that I feel the most free when I’m writing. When I feel free I am able to be a better me. I’m able to be the best me actually. Freedom for me is love. With that being said, writing is and always has been my one, TRUE calling. I want to be a writer and share all of these different parts of myself with the world through my writing. This is why I deleted my old posts. They didn’t feel free at all. They didn’t feel like me. Thinking about them even now has me tensing up because they were just so…off. The issue was that I was trying to write for others instead of for myself. That ultimately led to me creating blog posts that were incredibly generic. When I read them they just seem to try too hard. They weren’t representative of me at all. I don’t want to get too much into why that is or why I felt that I had to do that. That’s a story for another time. But I do want to declare that from this day forward I do consider myself to be a REAL writer. I will write with love and authenticity. I will write with care for the art and the heart of it all. I will write for me, and in turn I hope you all are able to get a few gems from it. After all, this is the Gems of Jas.
Thank you. Always.
