Before this blog even had a URL, we wanted to tell peoples stories. We can offer our story to share, yet it’s only so much. We want Inkblots of an Idealist to resonate with everyone who is in search of hope. We believe there are stories just waiting to be shared.
Profiles of an Idealist has been something that has been in the recesses of our mind for over a year. We never expected to tell our story on this blog with a multitude of posts. Maybe a couple of articles here and there concerning the obstacles of chronic illness, but we wanted it to be in the minority of the posts. When circumstances drastically changed with a dramatic decline in health and full time caregiving, and the desire for people to be in the know, Inkblots of an Idealist became more about us and our trials.
Yet we know so many people who have their own trials. We are looking for people to briefly interview that encapsulate the message of Inkblots of an Idealist: recognizing the raw reality of life, yet still seeking to ideally find solutions.
We mainly wanted to share our story because we ourselves know that vulnerabilities shared on a page can make someone out there feel not-so-alone. Do you or someone you know have a story that could make someone out there feel not-so-alone? Or do you have a story that could encourage or inspire? We would love nothing more than to hear from you! We apologize in advance if there is any delay in getting back to you. Time has a way of slipping into weeks when it feels like just days for us.
We already prayerfully have some people in mind who hold the realist/idealist perspective in their own lives who have stories we are excited to tell. Maybe you or someone you know has one as well. “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” (Maya Angelou)
