I am a very shy person by nature--always have been and probably always will be.
when i first began blogging, almost 2 years ago
gasp!, many of my friends were kind of surprised when i told them. probably because they couldn't believe that a shy person like me would "talk" so freely to the entire world via the internet. and i must admit that when i first started blogging i was very guarded. i tried to write in a very non-detailed, general way when it came to things about my personal life and such.
and then i remembered the reason i started blogging--i felt alone. not physically alone, but alone in the everday up and downs of life. i felt like i was the only who had a kid who rubbed snot on the walls or the only one who struggled with the pressures at work. there were certain aspects of my life that i felt no one fully understood. and i began to think...maybe i'm not the only one out there who feels this way. i felt i had a lot to say and that what i had to say needed to be heard and so i started this blog.
it has changed a bit since that day, almost 2 years ago, but no matter what it looks like, it will always be me.
this is my promise to you, dear friend. i will always be open and honest--most importantly i will always be me.
i started this blog to help others, to let them know they are not alone, to be a friend when a friend was needed...but the funny thing is through this blog i ended meeting new people who helped me. i ended up making friends, i would have otherwise probably never met.
i have met women, who, when i tweet about my bad day, send me a tweet letting me know they are praying for me. i have also met women who will email me and offer words of encouragement when i need them the most.
it's funny how i started this blog in hopes to help and bless other and in turn, i was the one who ended up being helped an blessed. and to think if i had never started this blog on a whim, that day, almost 2 years ago...
