I have always enjoyed writing, but I haven't always made it a priority. I think words have power. The power to lift up, or tear down. The power to inspire, to encourage, or to make you think deeply.
There is something satisfying about seeing my thoughts written down in black and white. I like having a record of the things I'm thinking about and learning about so that I can reflect, learn, and grow from them.
I've played with the thought of having a blog off and on over the years. I've even attempted to start one a time or two. Recently the thought of having a place to order and share my thoughts has pressed heavily on my heart. I decided I want to have a place where I can share those thoughts and glimpses into my life.
You have to start somewhere, and I'm stepping out and starting right here, right now by establishing this blog.
As I contemplated the creation of this blog, I began to think about what I would call it. I wanted something that reflected who I am and the things I love. It didn't take long before my brainstorming lead me to one of my favorite things--Wonder Woman. It doesn't take much time being around me before you realize I LOVE anything related to Wonder Woman. People know she's my favorite super hero, but not many people ask me why she's my favorite. I'm drawn to Wonder Woman because I think she's a good role model for young girls. I like that she believes in truth and honesty. I love that she bravely fights for those who don't have the power to fight for themselves. She is a fierce, brave warrior who doesn't give up even when things seem impossible.
As I thought about all of this, I knew I would want my blog to have some allusion to Wonder Woman. I also knew that I want people to know that although I can be tough when needed, I'm also fun and silly and a big kid at heart. I couldn't think of a better word to incapsulate those ideas than "whimsical." So that is how I landed on the name Whimsical Warrior.
I invite you to come along with me as I chronicle my ideas, my inspirations, and my wonderings.
