I’m just an ordinary 40 something woman figuring out life and making mistakes along the way. I had a private blog for several years in which I recorded all my private thoughts which included my private hell and my private joy.
I’ve always enjoyed writing. I still have stories and poems I wrote as a child and teenager. In recording my thoughts I find clarity and release from compulsively thinking about the same things over and over. Over the years I turned to writing when my life got out of control. Sometimes I think its the only way I survived. My situation in life changed and I no longer felt the need for total privacy. I started wanting to share my thoughts with others. I wrote a guest post for a blogger. I wrote an essay to submit to a magazine but wasn’t ready for that kind of public display of my life and mistakes so I didn’t submit it. Finally I’m ready for feedback on my thoughts and maybe to share some of my experiences with others so that they might learn something. If only they learn that they are not alone, that will be enough.
I’m ready to start sharing some of my experiences past and present with the world. So here goes.
