Welcome to my life. I’m Paul. If you’re here I just want to say thank you. Even if it was by complete chance that you came to visit my site, I hope you will find what you are looking for. If you know me, then I want to say thank you for being part of my life.
This site came about after struggling to find a way to truly express myself in a creative medium. I challenged myself to blog every day for one year. In doing so I came to find that the structure of writing seemed to help with getting some things out there that I might otherwise avoid. It also helped me to learn a lot about who I am and was actually pretty fun to see exactly what happens in the span of a year. However, there was a certain point in which writing became a little more like a job than the original goal of a creative outlet. As such I took a step back, to really consider what it is that I’m hoping to accomplish with this site.
At this point I plan to use this blog for the following 3 purposes:
Discussing and thinking about topics that are occurring in my life. A large portion of this purpose will probably be tied into my current reading list, messages, podcasts, etc that are forcing me to think about life in a new way.
Updating people who stop by on just what it is that I’m doing with my life. This will also somewhat help me to document and record what I’m doing for my own purposes. While this is sometimes one of the areas I tend to not focus on, one of my goals for this year is to work on building better community and intentional relationships with those around me. Which as readers of this blog I encourage you to reach out and interact with me about what it is in my life that is helping you, or that you want to know more about, or just to start a conversation.
Creating a medium of output for my life. There are a lot of things that go through my head on a daily basis. Some good, some bad, some funny, some sad, etc, in the end though sometimes I just need a place to put it out there. I won’t apologize for the fact that some of this will come off as unedited nonsense most of the time, but for me it will be something that I needed to wrap my head around and for whatever reason felt like sharing at the time. While this purpose is almost entirely for me, if any of this type of output relates and moves you please feel free to reach out to me.
If you’ve made it this far, thank you for your time. I hope this site helps you as much as it has helped me, and please don’t hesitate to reach out, especially if you’re already apart of my life.
