So, I think I want March 1st to be my official blog (re)launch date. March doesn’t signify anything. It’s only that it will be the first of the month – and I just like starting at 1. They say that the people you spend New Years with are the people you want to be with and that will be in your life during that upcoming year, but that’s really not a true statement. I am sure that there are many people that are wishing that they could take their New Years Eve and New Years Days back. I personally feel indifferent about it. I truly believe that the great people remain in your life – as you seek to be a great person in their lives. And whether I spend a day with the wrong person or the right person, I have solace in knowing that I always try to be a great person in someone’s life.
Around New Years, I had so much to say. I felt happy and free – and motivated to get back into my craft. Writing is my passion. Sometimes, I wish I were a better writer or even, that I could really unleash and be myself in my writing. I’ve always felt bad about saying things that I feel might offend someone. But, the truth is – we will always offend someone. Our words might very well hurt someone. Unfortunately, that’s life.
I want to shy away from talking about relationships and friendships, because, as of right now, those subjects are tender areas for me. I want to focus on the things that have recently brought smiles to my face – the things that are actually worth being talked about. I want to share laughter with you, or encourage you to shake your head in disgust with me. I want my words to introduce you to a me that you’ve not met yet.
One who has seen hurt up close and bounced way past it to a place of love and forgiveness – who chooses to hang on to the good memories and discard the bad ones for the sake of remembering why I chose to have those specific people in my life. I want to share a story of a arrogant/shy female with feminine/masculine qualities and affinities, who struggles/thrives in a society that thinks it ideal to place people in boxes that, in most cases, many (including myself) do not fit into.
I hope that you love this old new me as much as I love her. I invite you to join me on my journey!
