Welcome to A Life Examined

What is the examined life? A life worth living! As I look at the road ahead, I take all the baggage from the past and use it as experience - the pain and the passion, the sorrow and the joy - allowing it to carve wisdom into my mind and hope into my spirit.
There is no experience that can't be useful to me at some point in my life. There is no lesson learned that cannot make a contribution to the future.
A tiny drop of water is a part of the ocean. A tiny speck in the night sky is a ginormous star in the distance. It all depends on perspective.
So, this examined life is to offer reflections in the hope of discussing things which are of value to myself and to others.
Love, Sarah

I was reviewing my writing notebook... a book I use for jotting down ideas, thoughts, stories and ideas for stories.  I came across a sort of confession -- I had expressed a fear that I had.  I consider it a confession because it was a fear I didn't think I should have, but was admitting I did have.  Anyway, when we jot down our thoughts, we can admit our deepest fears, regrets, worries, and depending on who we imagine our audience to be, it can be a confession, an apology, without the embarrassment of confrontation.
Of course, a face-to-face might be in order, and in that case, this bit of writing will be a good preparation.  It might even be the mode of self-revelation that takes us to the place of illumination, confrontation, or reconciliation.
There are millions of reasons to put pen to paper.
This is one of the more useful ones, I think.

Have a great weekend.
