Hello! Though there are many things I could share with you about myself and who I am, I feel that my introductory first post to this blog sums it up well:
Why is it the brain struggles to function (mine at least) without writing out thoughts? Much like I find I forget to complete a task without scribbling in my planner, I often fail to complete a thought or even figure out what that thought even is without finding an opportunity to write it. It is because of an enormous amount of thoughts that have been flowing through my mind lately that I have elected to re-ignite my desire to “blog.” Though I do not do so at this time to write with an intent to reach an audience, I would be ever so grateful if you would join me on my journey. The address for this blog, Elle détient la clé, is French for “She holds the key,” the title of this blog. It’s a concept I strive to live by and have since half way through my high school education: that we each hold the key to our own happiness. No matter what we’ve been through, no matter what someone said about us, we can decide, right now, to be happy. I initially wanted the blog’s address to reflect this title in something easily discernible, I found that someone else already had taken my first choice and instead translated it to French (French always sounds fancy anyway, hehe).
Though I greatly prefer a pen and paper for most things (evidenced by many failed attempts to use my Smart Phone to keep a calendar), for writing thoughts I much prefer to type. My pen never seems to keep up with my mind, and through typing I seem to be much more capable of capturing the majority of the things I wish to write. I also have a particular attachment to the feel of the keys under my fingers as they elegantly ‘tick’ away at the keyboard in front of me. The sound produced from this, as well, elicits a pleasurable tone to my ear. :0)
