So I have decided to start a blog, why? Because one of the things I want to do is write. I have a lot to say. I get idea's and inspirations. yada yada yada ... and things come to me when I am getting ready for work, taking a bath, riding my bike or just cleaning my house.. and all of this while no children or husband is around. Very Zen like times when my mind gets to relax, which in my life seems very few and far between =-). I do find when things come to me, it is never when I have a pen or paper on hand, and have considered carrying around a tape recorder, like columnist or real writers do. But that also will not work when I am in the ocean on a surfboard..aaaah my new found love. (something I will blog about later).
What brings me here? Well, you know every women after they turn 40 decides " I want to write". " I have so much to give". SO where do they end up? Where do they start? On a blog of course.
My mind goes in so many different directions all the time, and so do my moods. (Although I think I've tamed my inner "Sybil") which will make this interesing, SO...
....here I go a blogging.. are you entertained yet?
I assume someone out there is reading this. If that is the case, I guess I should tell you a bit about me. I will start simple.. I was born in January in the year 1967in Chicago Illinois, during a horrific snow storm, to a mom and dad, who I would end up never knowing....
Psych.... I really wont go that far back.. but that is all true.
Seriously My name is Michelle. I am a Mother of 5 and Grandmother of 1. I'm over 40 and love the great outdoors, getting to know and listen to people, out to save every animal, and I am obsessed with seahorses. I have a new hobby, (surfing), which I am becoming in love with. I told my sis I was bit by the surfing bug, she says it is more liked consumed. LOL.( wow sounds like I am applying for one of those dating sites)however I am married! I am a very unique individual, if I do say so myself. I love tradition, but yet seem to think outside the norm (notice I did not say box?)
I have finally come to the realization that at certain stages in your life, you try to be certain things to different people. Which sometimes makes you get lost and forget who you are, and you can't be true to yourself. Then you get to an age where you say to yourself "why in the H E double hockey sticks do I care what people think". Who are they to me? If they are someone to me, they would want and love me to be myself. If we are not true to ourselves, we are not living our purpose on this earth we were meant to.
Why am I telling you all this? What does this have to do with blogging? Well it brings me to why I am blogging, I want to write and express myself. I am putting myself and feelings out there for the world to see. I know I'm not going to impress or please everyone, with what my pen puts to paper or my fingers strike on the keyboard. But, at least I will be honest and put down what I feel and what I believe is true to me. It will be anything from what my day is like. To my experiences surfing, bike riding, camping, to when my grand baby does anything. What my beloved Chihuahua or any other member of my pack of dogs gets into. It even could be a new discovery I have found. (Like I have discovered using less expensive brands and getting the same results.)
I look forward to welcoming you all into the crazy world that is mine.
Welcome to the life of Michelle.....PS.. don't be afraid to leave a comment.
