Going On 40

The blog’s name and website title will only be relevant for 11 more days. Isn’t that the case with so much going on in our lives; one day a thing is relevant and the next it’s not?

My writing partner suggested I start a blog. Scratch that. He reminded me that I told him I wanted to start a blog. Doesn’t it suck to have good friends that hold you accountable for the things you say? Even though sharing my thoughts and feelings is scary, I really love the process of writing and making a habit of doing it.

I know because in 2012 I started a blog while on a car trip around the United States. The blog served as a nice outlet at the time, but as it caught traction – people following me and wanting more, I kind of freaked; the pressure was too great. So I quit.

I enjoy the experience of being seen today; mostly, I think, because I like who I am.

I am awkward, direct, and intimidating at times.

I am spontaneous, impatient, and constantly in a hurry. I am judgmental and compassionate. I ask a lot from those around me, but I ask for more from myself.

All that to say – I’m excited about this blog! I think it’s going to be a good time. I plan to share a little wisdom, a few laughs now and then, and maybe even get a little vulnerable. We’ll see how it goes. Thanks for coming on a ride with me.

Love always,
