I am a full-time working mom with two kids who wants to share my life (the good, bad, ugly, funny and random experiences) at work and at home. I am a down-to-earth, straight talking Midwest girl and reader beware – I sometimes use sarcasm. I am not a best-selling author, guru or someone who can provide professional advice. My musings will not change the world or start a trend, they are simply my thoughts on a topic that caught my attention at that time.
I am a brand new blogger. This is meant to be my personal blog where I suspect I will write posts mainly about being a mom, daily experiences, perhaps something related to work and other random stuff that catches my attention, like something on TMZ. There will not be a theme that I strive to write content about. I am not a literary genius – I admit that right here and now. So why am I doing this?
I am doing this as my method of personal growth. I’m a mom, I’ve branded myself as such and I wear my mom badge with honor and pride. But I have realized that for the past six plus years my focus has been on my kids/husband and work. I’ve been buried under the day-to-day aspects of raising two small children while working full-time. I finally stuck my head up and realized that I feel that I have forgotten or lost my voice, personal thoughts and opinions. I am not looking to set the world on fire with radical thoughts, be controversial, rant and rave, or even be overly thought-provoking. I am simply looking for a hobby that I enjoy. (nope, it’s not a mid-life crisis, not that I am aware of anyway)
Writing appeals to me. It has always been easier for me to communicate via written word than face-to-face. And the fact is that I am very shy, it takes me time to be comfortable in new settings so going out and joining a new group for a socializing doesn’t appeal to me. If someone who knows me reads this they may disagree with that statement. Truthfully, I like people, I like having a good time – with people I know and have grown comfortable with. If you put me in a room where I don’t know anyone, I will find the nearest corner, pull out my phone and pretend to be occupied until I have wasted enough time and can make a graceful exit. Plus I want a hobby that I can do on my own time, when I want.
I guess I am channeling my inner Carrie Bradshaw to some degree albeit in a slightly different format. Thanks you for reading. I appreciate comments and feedback.
