So, this is my first blog post…ever. (Pause for the sound of faint applause and angels harmonizing in the background) You see – I have been trying to sit down and start a blog for – um – well it depends on how far you want me to go back – truthfully, I’ve wanted to do this for years. I procrastinated for a long list of reasons. The main one being I have a full-time, life-sucking day job. You, too? Great! We’ve already got something in common.
Why I am writing this blog:
This blog is about me finally, for real, no I’m serious this time, no this time I really mean it – getting. the shit. done. And not just in regards to writing this blog, but in doing ALL of the things I want to do, talk about doing, think about doing, and dream about doing. It’s about escaping my jail term in the cubicle, once and for all. I’m 43. I think I’m eligible for parole.
Due to a recent mysterious injury involving my hand, I had time off the dreadful day job to contemplate what I’m doing with my life. And here are the results of said contemplation: I’m stuck in a rut, stuck in my job, and stuck in a town I don’t like. I guess you could say more simply: I’m stuck. I feel like this time off work is a do or die moment. Like I said, I’m 43 and dying is not on my bucket list.
Who I am:
I am a grounded dreamer who believes in herself and periodically feels insecure. I have a PhD in procrastination. I live in central PA. I’m a legal secretary by day and a wife, cook, Director of Our Home, creative-wanna-be by night. While I am sleeping, I dream about being a jewelry designer, writer, photographer, creative Martha-Stewart-worthy genius, and interior designer. I analyze things too much. I’m a perfectionist. I will do just about anything to eat a piece of chocolate cake.
Why I need You:
I welcome and appreciate your comments. I would love to hear your stories, struggles, and successes with similar issues. I want this blog to be a conversation for all of us to support each other on the things that get in all of our ways to creating the life we want. Thank you for your support!
