I used to think I was weird because I was so sensitive to things and people around me. I thought something was wrong with me.
At times I would think, “why can’t I say what I need to say without crying or getting emotional?” Or, “what in the world am I giggling for or feeling all these butterflies in my stomach just because I want to say something?” Or the craziest of all, “why does this person make me feel overly protective over this other person,” or “wow! this person makes me feel excited and nervous when I am around them.”
I have learned that I am a somewhat highly sensitive person. But more to the point, an empath (actually an empath with highly sensitive person inclinations), if you will, and to me, that is weird yet strangely a relief to know.
I know many do not believe in the word and what it stands for and much less what that means about the person that is supposedly this “thing.” Believe me, I have tried to deny it for a very long time because I felt it put me in a vulnerable place, even more than just feeling it all. Now I am putting myself out there as having that ability and being looked at as weird, odd, and a bit out there.
I now realize it is a gift that was given to me and if I trust it, I can learn from it and help others with it.
No, I am not some great person and I will never see myself as being special (I never have), but I do know I was given my many special creative gifts for a reason.
I have decided it is now time to put my gifts to better use. Yes, I am singing when I can. Yes, I am writing a lot. But, now I will put both my voice and writing together and I will be starting a podcast in a few weeks. It will be centered around positivity. Positivity, motivation, and inspiration from people and things in this world of ours.
There is too much anger, hatred, selfishness, and childish acts of harm in this world. It is time to get more love, positivity, and hope back into it. Even if it is just a little at a time. I am going to do my part, and put my little bit back into it, one week at a time with my podcast. Then along with that, continue throughout with content on my blog and all social media sites.
I know it will not be for everyone. But I will be here trying to shine a little bit of light on the world. I will be here to share and to listen. If I ever do not have an answer for a question asked, I will find someone that does and point you in that direction. If there is a subject or a person you would like me to cover, please let me know. I welcome suggestions. Now, I will not always take the suggestions, but will always welcome them.
I am but a small account right now. One small voice in the many billions out there. But, I will do my best and my part to help in some way with my voice and learning that I share. For that is what, and all, I have to offer right now.
So, in a week or two I will share the name and art of my podcast to look for and then in a couple of weeks, I will be giving you the information you will need for my podcasts, the places you can find it and the other social media sites as well.
Right now, I am on twitter (@WonderingBelles) and Instagram (wonderingbelle or Belle Scribe) and I will put the information there as well.
I am excited and nervous about this new adventure. I know it is the right thing to do and share.
I hope you will join me, enjoy the experiences, and share with others. I love you all and look forward to your input and feedback once it all gets started! 🙂
