Welcome! My name is Dajanae Cole and I am grateful for your curiosity and I hope you can connect with the things written on Blue Bicycle. This blog is all about my journey and how I have been given the privilege of being liberated to BE ME. It has been in the painful places, darkest places, filled with brokenness and with a shattered heart that I have found great discoveries. I have found the hope and the passion to live again! When my mom passed away the thought of living and really enjoying life did not seem like it would be possible again. However, through my grieving process I have found out some things about pain, fear, courage, hope, and love that I would like to share with you.  

I believe that encouragement is not valued nearly enough in our world. We get to use words in so many ways and the way I choose to use words will be shaped by encouragement. Blue Bicycle is just one of the places where I will encourage people. I’m not here to put limits on the type of person I encourage because I believe encouragement is for everyone.  My hope is that you will continue to choose to partner with courage so you can live a liberated life of being ONLY YOU. The adventure of becoming me is a ride that only I can take and the adventure of being you only has room for one as well. Enjoy the ride! Embrace your process, and always choose to land on the side of hope! :)   

It doesn’t matter to me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for - and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing. It doesn’t interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool -for love - for your dreams - for the adventure of being alive. —Oriah Mountain Dreamer
