|It's mine, I simply chose to share... that's all.|
It's how I share life experiences, noodle through trials and free my head of all my thoughts. To me, the process is very cathartic and I do it because it brings me pleasure - that's it.
This blog is my space. It's my place to write about my life, for me. Bottom line is that it is really nothing more than my personal digital diary. Sure, I share it with the world but that is because I choose to - I have been writing online for close to 6 years - yeah, it's true. For those who are the curious type, you can click here to see where it all began.
I don't sugarcoat things, add fluff or view life through rose colored glasses. Why would I keep a false record of my life for myself, I know the truth. I don't write for advice, condolences, commiseration or praise. I write because it brings me joy. I write because it brings me peace. I write... for me.
If someone else gets a bit of joy from reading what I write, that's wonderful and I'm glad. If someone else gets a bit miffed from reading what I write, well there is really nothing I can do about that because it's my account of my life. I'm not a sanctimommy - I'm glad that you believe yourself to be a perfect mother, I know I'm not. I'm not June Cleaver - I'm glad that you believe your husband finds you to be perfect, I know mine simply finds me perfect for him. I don't compare myself to anyone because I am no one but myself. I have failed in the past and I will fail again in the future... they work in a strange cycle just as my successes do.
I am human. I am flawed. I am genuine. I am me... and I am a writer.
