In this very moment I am sitting here anxiously awaiting the arrival of my 3 siblings who’ve decided to road trip it from PEI to come visit for the weekend.
I am ecstatic!!
I haven’t seen them since June of last year at my wedding.
So while I sit, impatiently, and wait…I decided to give this blog another go-at-it.
You see, yesterday I tried. I tried. I tried again. But I am not a patient person and the Virgo in me is a HUGE perfectionist, so there is A LOT of backspacing that goes on when I write.
So why bother with a blog?
Because I can’t shut my brain off!!! That’s why.
There are literally about six novels being written in my head on a daily basis.
“Who’s an over-thinker?”
Also, not saying I’m the next Rachel Hollis, but when I read her book I thought, “I could totally write this book.”
But like I said, I am super impatient and a perfectionist. So for now, all you fans out there get a blog 😉 You’re welcome.
Now that I’ve covered that, the BIG question is: what do I write about?
I could tell you about the time I was proposed to by a 70-year-old man. Not kidding. Real proposal.
I could tell you all the adventures I’ve had as a mom. (SO many poop stories!)
Or the time my minivan rear ended a 15-passenger van that was hauling the Three Days Grace band. True story.
I can get to those another time though (except the poop stories, I may leave those in the past).
Oh yay! Incoming text from the little sis….they are a few hours away 😀 Best-Friday-Ever!!
When I decided I wanted to blog again, well, I was actually inspired to do so while following my girl friend’s blog Let There Be Fight. She received some gut wrenching news and decided to blog about it every day. Real. Raw. Honest. Funny. Emotional.
It got me thinking about how we all have so much to share, so much to say, and yet we mostly hide behind our filtered pictures on social media. It’s gotten to a point that when someone shares the raw & real genuine stuff, it’s actually refreshing.
I currently have 423 friends on my Facebook and over 500 followers on Instagram. The number of people who actually know me? *Raises up 10 fingers*
So I’m blogging. Until I am patient enough to write an actual book, I’m opening up on here. I want people to know me. The real version, not just the girl in front of the snapchat filtered pictures who sells Avon and posts about her kids.
“The graveyard is the richest place on earth, because it is here that you will find many hopes and dreams that were never fulfilled, books that were never written, songs that were never sung, inventions that were never shared, cures that were never discovered, all because some people were too afraid to take that first step, keep with the problem, or determined to carry out their dream.”
It goes without saying that the graveyard is also the one place in the world filled with the most untold stories, wisdom, and knowledge.
If all I ever do is blog, so be it. But I’ll be damned if all people remember me by are my social media posts.
I’ve got a lot to say (six novels in my brain, baby!). I’ll be honest, I’ll be raw, I’ll share secrets, some stuff may even shock you. But I promise, I won’t be boring…and I will try really hard not to share my children’s poop stories.
