Jaren's Blog

Why I have a blog

If you take me back about two years and asked me “Jaren, will you write something?”  My response would be, “Ah, are you kidding, I failed English.”

When our economy hit a brick wall and every investment holding was met with limited cash flow, no capital and devaluation; I found myself one day sitting at a computer typing some of my feelings.  What I discovered was that my writing gave me a break from the pressure and relieved a great deal of stress.

I have observed people my whole life and enjoy the discovery of learning what makes each of us unique.  I have always had a desire to share my observations with others.  My sharing would either be one on one or in groups and typically through speech.  Some of my greatest joys have come through watching lives change, as I share these simple truths I discovered.

For me the writing began as personal and necessary for my well-being.  I was originally asked to post something on Facebook; I thought to myself, okay but where and how?  After learning about Facebook, I gave it a shot.  For me, the shock of having anyone interested in what I wrote was one thing.  Then finding people who read my posts all over the country was when I about fainted in disbelief.  I had individuals who I hold in high regard thank me for my words, even suggesting it made a difference to them personally.  “You have got to be kidding me,” I would think to myself.

The feeling I get when I speak to a group of people, motivating just one to a better existence is indescribable.  The comments I was receiving from my thoughts now in written form is very similar, exhilarating to say the least.  Understand, anyone enjoying these reflections is icing on the cake for me.  Again, the relief I get from the stress of the economy was my initial driver.

I acknowledge and thank those who may read this blog.  I offer your interest, support and recommendations are heart-felt.  Each time I have tried to express myself in a different venue it is because of one or many of you encouraging me.  I can’t tell you how much it means that perhaps something I say is either meaningful or may somehow help.  It has made my day many times!

This blog is here because a few asked me to put my writing somewhere other than Facebook.  The blog may be elementary and even a little odd; it is because, “I don’t know what I am doing.”  It will improve over time as I listen to those who know, “What’s up” and advise me.

Please, as you read anything here on this blog, comment and suggest; it helps me and allows me to learn.  Most of all thank you for taking the time to participate in life with me.
