Bare (bear) with me?

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.


Where it all began…

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.

Getting out there

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.  🙂

It’s New Year with new resolutions!

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.
