Entry #1 August 9, 2009
Hello! Wooooooow. This is my first REAL blog. I’ve been wrestling with the idea of being a “blogger”. Is it an opportunity for me to keep up with the “new thing” or simply a way for me to redeem myself for all of the papers I literally threw together for my writing classes in high school and in college??? Or am I finally doing what my creative writing professors wished I would do in their classes? “Just write.” How about this… Will I have to censor my thoughts and feelings? Do I write about subjects that are interesting to others or to me? Or both? I guess it doesn’t matter. What seems to matter most, right now, is telling you what and how I’m feeling. Why? Well, can I be a little selfish? I guess this blog will serve as therapy for me. Hey, I am NOT so proud or so presumptuous to think that I don’t need therapy! I have a good friend who says, “It is better on the outside!” In other words, let it out. Get it out. Talk it out. Good and/or bad. I believe there is healing in that. Let’s do it together. In addition to that, my blog will be my way of keeping you updated on my music and… great restaurants and…. telling you about my babies and how important God is to me and, well… you get it. You game? I thought so. I hope that you will enjoy this journey with me and I pray that you get as much out of it as I already have! I think I’m excited. Or is it the 16oz of coffee I had this morning? I feel like a squirrel. This blog was supposed to be 150 words or less. Great. Until the next blog, LOVE! Heard this today:
“You may not be where you want to be, but CELEBRATE and APPRECIATE where you ARE.”
–Bishop Walter S. Thomas, Sr.
That’s a word!!!!! I love it! SHINE y’all!
