To Blog or Not to Blog
I wanted my own.
Sarah, being the good friend that she is, held my hand and helped me take my first baby steps to blogging. She knew that I had something inside that needed to get out. She knew that this would help heal some wounds that I just couldn’t get past. She knew that this would be EXACTLY what I needed.
I was nervous and honestly didn’t think I had anything interesting to say. I thought that I would just write to purge some of the stuff I’d been feeling and it would be a good way for me to sort some things out. I can honestly say that I didn’t think anyone (besides Sarah) would actually read it. But then I all of a sudden, I hoped that someone would read it.
Last year was a hard one in many ways. I’ve learned a lot about myself but there is so much that I’m still discovering. As cheesy as it sounds, my writing (blogging) helps me straighten it all out. I’ve also learned that it is something that I LOVE to do. I’ve never been a big writer, but have always liked doing it. Now, I have found a love for putting things down on paper (computer screen) even if I’m the only one who “gets it.” Somehow, writing it all down takes what is crazy in my head and makes it a tad more logical. It starts to make some sense.
I think I most love blogging because it is mine. This is something I don’t share with the kids and the hubby. Its MY thoughts and feelings and I’m in total control about what I post. Its me pouring out my heart or telling a crazy story about my kids and the understanding that comes from those who might read it. And for those that don’t understand…that’s okay too. There is a part of me that hopes that I am able to touch the lives of those who read my blog or make them laugh, just like so many of you do for me.
I’m excited for this blog. I’m excited that I can be a part of such an amazing and dynamic group of people. I’m excited to learn about other people’s experiences and how it has affected them. I’m excited to continue with something that I enjoy so much.
I’m excited for what this will bring.
