OUTSPOKEN – A New Decade



Happy New Year, Everyone!!

With tremendous gratitude and sincere love, I wish you all the best in the coming year. Thank you for listening!


R & R Is The Reason… Plus Some Gratitude



An explanation of the reason for my brief hiatus, and gratitude for YOU, as a person and as a listener, and yet more gratitude for the things Outspoken brings to my life.

With love and kind intent,

Justin W.

 

Note: At one point I say “accrued” when I meant “incurred”, and it pains me to leave it in, but I’m attempting to go easier on myself and to allow for the occasional gaffe or misspoken word without it meaning something about my self worth. The fact that I didn’t edit it out should be balanced with the fact that I saw it necessary to write this note, when considering or evaluating the extent of my spiritual development, and the fact that I have put so much time and energy into something so seemingly insignificant may perhaps also serve as a window into my unrealistic standards and expectations, and my somewhat unforgiving self-criticism. My goal is to be kind and considerate to all who are trying to be good, including my current self and the little guy who lives inside and punches my heart while telling stories about not being good enough. It’s not hard to see that each of us had  certain needs that went unmet when we were tiny humans, but some of us have a harder time than others letting go of the emotional pain our circumstances may have created. Whether you are one type or the other, or somewhere in between, thank you for reading, thank you for listening, and my apologies, and you’re welcome, and I salute myself, and all those like or unlike me, for the effort and progress, and I forgive us all for the mistakes made while learning.
