Everyone seems to have a blog these days. I originally thought “why does everyone think their life is sooo important that they need a facebook page, a myspace page, and a blog?” I just didn’t get it. I finally gave in to facebook a year or so ago and now I am venturing into the blog world. Mostly because I secretly wish I was a writer for a living (someday..) but also, I have really enjoyed keeping up with people who are important to me and seeing the changes, both joyful and sorrowful, in their lives. Most of my good friends or those that are dear to me do not live near me so the internet has been amazing.
My first entry for this blog is taking place today in a coffee shop in downtown New Bern on a somewhat sunny day. Right before I logged in to start writing, it poured down rain outside. One of those crazy, super fast, out of nowhere showers that comes and goes in a matter of seven minutes. I love rain. I love the sound of it, the smell of it, and the air it leaves behind. I actually LOVE going for a jog in the rain. And today, it is giving me the time to write.
I have been through so many changes in the last six months – really the last two years – and writing has become my free form of therapy. I feel so very different about a lot of topics than I did just a few years ago. I know I’m still learning and growing, and always will be. I have most definitely not “figured it all out”!
I am starting to make life goals for myself and try to check off that crazy bucket list as fast as I can. None of us are promised tomorrow and I am striving to find all the joys that are to be found in every day.
I am so out of my comfort zone, it’s almost comforting. Nothing is normal but everything is great. So much has changed but I am content. And ‘content’ is not the same as ‘complacent’. I still feel like there is so much to accomplish in life but my outlook is so much more fulfilling now. As you change in life, you find out who your true friends are.
So, here I am. I will be 30 in four months and I am at an “open-door” crossroads of my life. I have all of my decisions at my fingertips for the first time in my adult life. I can move anywhere, work anywhere, do anything, be anything, etc.
This blog is going to be a story of decisions, self-discovery, love and LIFE.
Everyday I learn something else.
Everyday I find something else I want to do or achieve.
I think I am like everyone else in that I just wish I had more
