The thing that is really hard, and really amazing, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself.”
|Anna Quindlen quotes (American bestselling Author and Journalist, b.1953)|
Well look at me I am blogging! My middle daughter would call me names right about now but I don’t care. New to the blogging world hope that you will be patient with me as you were once a newbie too.
So I guess I am supposed to give you little clues about who I am and what I may write about. Well plan to pour out thoughts from my authentic self, a woman I have been excavating over the past year or more. We all have one, an authentic self I mean; we have just buried her or him under piles of debris. You know the kinds of debris I am talking about, other people’s ideas of who we should be and what we should like, how we should behave and what we should believe in. We owe it to ourselves to dig her out and allow her the freedom to explore what it is that truly brings us joy.
As I have taken the shovel and begun my personal dig I have discovered many things along the way. My most recent discovery is that I want to write. Not novels or non-fiction although there may be a time for that, but short stories, essays, blogs. I do not necessarily have a plan for this blog or a theme although these may emerge from time to time. I really just want to share with the blogging community some of the joys I have found along my journey.
It is never too late to become the person you could have been. ~George Eliot
Hoorah! I am blogging.
