Welcome to A Bite-Sized Life… because in the grand scheme of things, we are all bite-sized.
Originally, this blog was created to tell about my struggles, my travels, my adventures and my life in New York City.
In the past year or so, however, I’ve barely written at all. Why? Well, I realized that in the grand scheme of things, MY life isn’t what matters. To be fair, yours doesn’t really matter much either.
I got sick of writing only about my day-to-day life, because well, what’s the point? My life “adventures” will hold no value in 10 or 20 years. Yes, they are humorous and sometimes stupid, insightful and entertaining, but I am not here to provide you with entertainment anymore.
Instead, I am rebranding myself to write about things that actually make a difference in the world.
I was scared in the past to write about things that truly matter to me (and things that should matter to you): social issues, politics, policy and basically everything we are told to keep to ourselves. The only problem with that is those are the things that we SHOULD be talking about, and failing to discuss them is kind of how we got in this current predicament (and no, I am not referring solely to Trump, but rather to the partisan divide that keeps us from accomplishing anything and the bubble that we ALL live in, whether it’s urban or rural).
I realize more and more every day that silence is just as bad as not doing anything at all. I have a voice (figuratively), and I don’t think I should be scared to use it.
That being said, these articles are not supposed to be an end-point; they are meant to inspire you to dig deeper. Do your own research, read about what is going on from multiple sources, and make up your own mind about the issues going on today (if you send me an email, I would be happy to refer you to some of my favorite outlets and newsletters).
Individually, we are all “bite-sized”, but when we work together we have the power to make change happen.
I am not here to start a fight. I am not here to fix everything that is wrong with our system. I am just one woman who firmly believes that effective communication is key to success.
