Update on the update...

Update

Well.

That whole process took rather longer than I expected.

It seems a lot of things take longer than expected, perhaps because I am also really good at procrastinating.

I also learned that I write rather differently in my personal journal than I do when the words are going on a public blog. I am not sure if I can learn something about myself there.

Anyway, I have added some of the more HSP-related musings from my journals, since moving from Texas, and spending a little time here in Port Townsend. Whether anyone will ever read them remains to be seen... but it felt like they should be part of this "journey" I am sharing here.

Pausing for Station Identification

After a considerable break, I am returning to the HSP Notes blog.

I recently moved across the country, from Texas to Washington state. With all that a major move entails-- especially for an HSP-- both my bandwidth and inclination to post updates here were somewhat limited. Besides, I did not have particularly good Internet connectivity during the past few months. "Wireless Internet" is not all it is cracked up to be, especially when you live "At The End Of The World," as I do now.

Over the next few weeks, I am going to add some "back posts" about the process of moving when you're an HSP, along with the challenges and feelings of leaving one life behind, and embraching a new one. I say "back posts," because I am merely going to copy some of the most relevant journal musings from my journal, to this blog, with the dates as I wrote them.

Some might say "Why bother?"

And it's a valid question. The heart of the answer lies in the many HSPs I have gotten to personally know over the past decade, and in knowing how many dream of making "a major life change," yet are fearful of doing so because they have so little sense for what is actually entailed in the process of completely changing one's paradigm. Whether it is "altruistic" or "self-centered" of me, I feel that if sharing this experience helps even one HSP make a major life change for the better, then it is worth my while.

Stay tuned.
