First of all, which one of those is actually correct… I have never written it and for some reason I don’t ever remember reading it. I just know I have heard it.
But the main reason for this blog is to ask you to be patient with me. Though this has been a very long dream of mine, I just recently got very serious about it. But I am having a hard time seperating my “writing life” from my personal life and well, I am extremely disorganized as of now. So, while I attempt to organize myself just a little so that things make sense, I will not be updating too much. But, I will be writing (on paper) each day in order to keep myself going. 🙂
Thanks for the patience and I hope that when I come back, I promise my mind will still be a mess, but I’ll be able to communicate it a bit better.
You know, as kids, we always changed our minds on what we wanted to be when we grew up. I changed my mind a few times. First I was going to be a nurse, helping people out. But then I found out that to be a nurse, one should probably not puke everytime there was bodily fluids visible. Then I wanted to be a police woman but the news scared me and seeing anything about an officer getting hurt just made me say no way even more. And I’m sure there were a few other career choices in there that I nixed for one reason or another. But then, I KNEW exactly what I wanted to do! I was going to be a famous actress! I wasn’t sure how I would go about it, but that was my ultimate goal. I made this choice when I was 8 years old. I would prance around my room acting like I was an actress and I was acting out my roles. I had all these little scenarios running through my head. I wish I had written some of them down at the time. I bet they would have made some AWESOME stories. LOL
Now, I still held onto the notion that I was going to be an actress, but I also realized (when I was 11 years old) that I had a knack for making up stories in my head. Turning little everyday situations I experienced into something that could be filled with drama, with a ton back stories. And so I began to write them down. And I knew, that I could also be an author. I’d be an actress who wrote and could probably write her own scripts for her own movies! But alas, I found out that I had a MASSIVE case of stage fright. I tried out for a High School play and ended up not being heard over the rattle of the paper I was supposed to be reading off of because I was shaking so bad.
But my love of writing never waivered. My love of reading is still as strong today as it was when I was 7 and would go into the library with 2 big bags and come out with them full of books. And even though I struggle to find time to write as often as I would like (but for the very best reasons), I still find time to write even for a few minutes a day.
So, here’s hoping that the dream I began at the age of eleven comes true in the next few years ahead.
Well, I’m getting myself out there. I offically am now a part of Twitter. Something I said I would never do is “tweet”, but I guess if you’re really wanting to get noticed, you should try to check out all the ways you can. So, now I’m on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter…am I missing any? Let me know. 🙂
Or is it? Do people even make those anymore? And if they do, do they actually keep it?
I am a person who USED TO make New Years resolutions. And they were always the same. Get more organized, lose weight, eat healthier. But this year I decided that the only resolution I am going to make is the one that I try to do all the time without making a proclamation about it.
I “resolve” to be a better person to myself and to those around me. It’s a rule I live by on a daily basis. I can’t change people around me but I can change how I act towards them and to situations that have been thrown at me. Therefore, I ask this of my readers. Make this a “resolution” for your daily life. Be a better person to yourself. Be a better person to those around you. Don’t let a negative situation bring you down. Find the silver lining in it if possible. Take a page out of a childs book and see the innocence of the world. Hard to do, I know, but sometimes, trying to find it is an adventure all in itself. 🙂
I hope you all have a wonderful 2015 and find as much happiness as possible.
Hello 2015!! I hope that this year brings you all happiness and good fortune.
