Well crap! Crap, crap, crap! When I made the decision to begin a blog, I immediately began brainstorming all the entries I would soon submit. Prose like none other. My blog would be inspired! And here we are…I’ve got nothin’.
I’ve always enjoyed writing and found the process cathartic. I could build a tower with all the journals I’ve begun over the years. unfortunately, like so many other self-care actions, writing often gets pushed aside for other “more important” tasks like laundry, meal preparation, and sleep. After a difficult 2014, I made the decision to focus on taking better care of myself in 2015. I don’t want to curse the challenge by calling it a resolution, because here we are at January 12th and two of my resolutions have proved to be less than resolute. I’ve been hesitant to blog because it seemed self-indulgent. I don’t have anything earth shattering to say and don’t want to appear at all to brag on my stellar existence. On the other hand, I don’t want to be Debbie Downer and go on and on about how hard my life is and how I can barely hang on. That just isn’t true and it just isn’t me. (Plus, I know some amazing people. People who are incredible writers and gifted with grammar. I will likely fall short of these people each and every entry.) So here we are. I’m going to begin a blog to use as a personal brain dump and as a part of my “Lauren, you are good enough to indulge sometimes” 2015.
You are welcome to join in this adventure. You are also welcome to abstain. No pressure. If you choose to read, please don’t send me all the grammar/spelling mistakes because I’ll get a complex. Also, please don’t tell me I’m a gifted writer, because I’ll get a complex. Ok, how about this? From here on, just assume I have a complex. Fair?
