I started a blog because my facebook friends were dropping like flies, apparently people not wanting to read blogs don’t appreciate them sneaking into their newsfeed disguised as status updates.
I called my blog The Elegant Odyssey because “odyssey” is defined as “a long series of wanderings or adventures, especially when filled with notable experiences, hardships, etc…” such is our lives, no?
“Elegant” on the other hand is defined as being “pleasingly graceful and stylish in appearance or manner” or in the more scientific definition “pleasingly ingenious and simple”.
The two words together contrast as much as they compliment, and in and of themselves tell the story of our souls journey through this human experience. We are so simple yet complex…learning how to be/know/love ourselves, while loving/knowing/being with others. Sometimes we fail miserably at both, but can also surprise ourselves by how much we can accomplish, how deeply we can love, how capable we are at healing (ourselves, others, this world) when we put our minds to it, put our hearts in it, and let ourselves live out all our perfect imperfections while giving this life our very best try…we’re all in it together…how elegant is that? 🙂
