I’ve been promising so many that I would write, again. I’ve especially been promising myself. So, probably the rest of you haven’t cared one bit. But, in my mind I thought you did.
I’ve done this before: in handwritten journals, in typed journals, in word document journals, in two or maybe three other blogs. And each time, I stop after a while because of many reasons, but the main one being that I can’t stand being pretentious one iota. I don’t think that I’m more important than any other average person. I will live and die just like the billionaire celebrity and just like the Iranian woman who doesn’t speak any English and who sits at the back of my yoga class at the gym only raising her hands every once in a while because that’s as much as she can do in the class. I have an aversion to navel-gazing.
Yet, I still do it. And I definitely don’t want to publicize that I do it.
But, I’ve been understanding lately that I need to be heard.
I have a ton of stuff floating around up in my head: stuff about kids, yoga, church, minimalism, music, comedy, friendship, memories, hopes, grief, anxiety, mid-life disappointment (that’s a thing, really, look it up), and various other quandaries (except the Presidential race --- I do not care about that so I will not ever write about that, guaranteed.) And I realize that I need to communicate because my husband needs other people to listen to me. Ha, no, he’s nice to me.
This blog will not be well-crafted themes to coincide with my yoga classes each week (even though that’s what drew most of you to this blog). But, you never know! They might be!
At 45 years old, having raised six sons, losing one tragically, trying to maintain healthy relationships with my husband and my sons through stress and tragedy and PTSD, I’m allowed to make my blog be about what I want it to be about. Any given day.
So, it will be.
Come back and read what may be on my mind at any moment. There’s often a whole universe on my mind and I will try to distill it in the best possible way.
It might not be what is recommended for attracting readers to my blog and I probably won’t have a post entitled “6 Ways to Achieve the Perfect Abs After Six Children!” but, I will be honest and tell you how I see things.
I will consider it quite an achievement if I post again tomorrow. So that’s my goal. And maybe you’ll want to read what’s in my blog.
