Letting Life Lead
When I turned forty-two — I thought I would get the answer to life, the Universe, and everything…
No such luck.
My 2015 resolution was to dust off a blog that I’ve had plans for since 2011, but just never seemed to have the time for. I’ve been a college instructor for twelve years and I love it; it is a path that chose me. With a husband, two children, two cats, and a house — energy is spread pretty thin. I woke up one morning, looked in the mirror, and realized that the image of myself in the Matrix is not the person in the reflection. Is that a chin hair!? I haven’t written that novel I’ve been wanting to write since I was ten, but that seems like a daunting task right now.
I am not sure of this blog’s direction, but I am sure once I start writing once again the path will reveal itself. I started with writing Amazon product reviews (take a look and if you find the review helpful you can like it) which I found I really enjoyed writing (something I could actually get done in the few minutes before a small person needed me to do something like blow their nose or break up another fight) before I revived this blog. I then decided to try a number of things: a diary of my mad crafts and projects over the years, my adventures in being an inconsistent cook, domestic whines, some tutorials, accounts of my parenting journey of five years so far, and other random musings. I may dabble in some videos, but being an Introvert I am not quite as motivated for that, but I haven’t taken it off the table. I might even amuse anyone who cares to read my recent attempts to do the Couch25k program in an effort to fit into my nice clothes again. My first passion is fiction writing, and through this blog I hope to find that part of me that used to never be without pen and a notebook to scribble in wherever I went.
It is time to just start writing and see what happens. I am not going to worry about blogging rules or single focus. I am quite tired of so many rules. My birthday reminds me that life is passing me by, and I just want to do…something! Well, something that doesn’t involve base jumping or white water rafting.
