It’s been almost two years since I last posted. Well, since I decided to start blogging. A lot has happened during such time: started a new job, got a new car, lost my dad, miscarried, lost my grandfather and three uncles, moved to a new store, battled wills with employees, almost gave up multiple times, met new people who will have forever changed my life, moved to a new state, found myself. It’s been a wild 20 months and because of that I have come to realize writing – whether good or crappy – would probably be the best thing for me right now. So, in an effort to offer what I promised I’m embarking on a month long post-at-least-once-a-day-about-anything-and-everything-good-bad-and-ugly blog blast. I can almost guarantee you that it’ll be pretty blah, but from my heart to yours. In either case, it is better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. So lets do this!
I seriously hate writing about me. What do you tell people? The customary who I am, where I'm from? Those are all well and fine but gets kinda redundant, doesn't it? If you want to know me, come read a long. I'm an open book - or at least try to be. I took a writing class recently and the one thing that I’ve clung to was the statement, “You’re either a writer or not. There isn’t anything aspiring about it.” So, here I am, writing. I try to write a little about everything. I should one day find my niche, one day. I figure, if I keep writing eventually it’ll come. Mostly I write to help inspire. This world can be a pretty damn scary place to live in.The hate crimes. The sexual violence. The bombings and shootings. I want to be able to shed some hope. Even just a sliver. Something to help someone take another step in their day. I started this blog in the hopes I could help change a dark and hatred filled world. I'm not exactly sure I'm actually doing it or not. But, I'm trying. I also write to get the practice I need. Sometimes I’ll be sweet and awe inspiring. Other times I’ll show a bit of my true self with some dripping sarcasm and stupid humor. Then there are other times I just don’t make sense. Bear with me! When you come across my page, please feel free to leave me comments - about anything. Open forum. Open door. Open, open, open. I like having discussions about feelings (ya right) and hearing opinions of others about what I write. And other times, it’s just nice to know that someone out there goes through some of the same things I do. Thanks bunches in taking the time to stop on by! xoxo
