From the Ground Up

Posted on

I cannot begin to express how great it is to begin feeling a sense of community. To have come to make wonderful friends, acquaintances, and neighbors. It gives me such a sense of arrival and acceptance. Having learned to accept myself, I have also learned that others accept me. It sounds so simple, but this is such a distinct shift in my mind.

I’m learning how to be myself and how to share myself. I’m learning how to build and sustain healthy relationships and how to see myself a part of a community. The piece that seems to bring that all together is the article I wrote for the local newspaper’s lifestyle column, Live Local: The Pulse of New Rockford. 

I share it with you now and hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
