I’ve lived in my town for 15 years now. In that time, I’ve been mighty busy raising a family, going to school, and working at or running three businesses. Down deep, I’m a pretty private person. I’ve tried a lot of things. I’ve succeeded at some of them, and I’ve failed miserably at others. I’ve kept most of that to myself.
I don’t know why I don’t share more. Part of me thinks nobody else would be interested. Part of me thinks that other people will just think I’m trying to get attention. I’m always surprised when I write something and 40, 50, or 100 people “like” it and/or comment. Maybe it *is* interesting. Maybe it *is* okay if other pay attention. Maybe, just maybe, someone will find help, or hope, or strength, or joy in something I share.
I’m going to just start writing what i know. I know something about a lot of topics. As a “jack of all trades,” these are a few of my areas of knowledge, for better or worse:
Family: Marriage, divorce, raising a family, blending a family, losing family
Health: celiac disease, morbid obesity, weight gain, weight loss, learning to exercise
Spirituality: faith, loss of faith, searching for truth,
Mental health: psychology, psychobabbe, depression, anxiety, loss, learning to love myself
Cooking: gluten free, casein free cooking
Misc: laughter, spreading kindness
Currently, this blog has no one direction. As it progresses, I may find a path for it to follow. For now, though, I will just write what I know.
