Welcome to the new LynnDaue.com! I’m so excited to share this shift with you, as I leave behind social media consulting and dive head-first into writing about becoming + being.
“Becoming + being” is about transition and seeking one’s place in the world. It is about the shifts we make as we grow in our lives, and an exploration of the pieces of ourselves that make us whole. “Becoming + being” is broad, like our lives.
Why the change?
The short answer? It was time.
The longer answer is that I used to write about these very topics. I changed direction for a variety of reasons, including getting married, raising children, for job security, for national security, because the Internet changed, because I changed. Many of the reasons for abandoning the personal essay were external, which makes them not very good reasons at all.
The time has come again to start dissecting and analyzing the world around me. I must pursue this. In doing so, I am happy.
In honor of that happiness, I have a copy of The Happiness of Pursuit: Finding the Quest that Will Bring Purpose to Your Life (aff), by Chris Guillebeau, to give away to one lucky person.
