Introverts get in trouble for thinking by way of writing and publishing without editing. The internet only encourages this habit for introverts.
After receiving a barrage of emails, it has come to my attention that I need to explain a few things.
Why am I still blogging? The journey is over. Mission accomplished, right?
Wrong. The journey has just begun. This blog will morph throughout the rhythms of my life and will look a bit different as I continue.
It will serve to document my days adjusting back in America.
It will be a place for me to sort out the thoughts clouding my mind.
It will be a place where I strive to keep a Vertical focus in this horizontal world.
So, what is the aim of my blog?
To reflect and react.
To notify and inform.
To engage and inspire.
To open eyes and touch hearts.
The underlying purpose of this blog is to share my story with you. At times, the storybook of my life reads more like a tragedy than a fairytale.
I pray that my story bears witness to the sighting of God.
I am not held back by shame or brokenness. I know others encounter similar struggles along the way. So I hope…
and walk alongside
until we see His glory revealed.
Disclaimer: The purpose of my blog is not to evoke shame or pass judgement on America. Having been away from the States, I can look at things with a fresh pair of eyes. That doesn’t mean that my vision is 20/20, but that I tend to see things from a different perspective. If you disagree with a statement I’ve made please comment on that to generate a broader discussion among other readers.
Reverse culture shock is a sticky swamp of emotions. Wading through the swamp is messy. And if it’s too painful for you to read about the process, I understand. But if you’re willing to watch me embrace this season of re-entry, feel free to stick around.
