I am a tad OCD and also a tad "delicate in my sensibilities" in that I place way too much value on what people think and say. I want to write stuff that resonates with others, but I don't want that to be my driving force. My prime motive for writing this blog was to wrap my head around all the changes and thought processes I'm undergoing at this midlife stage I've entered. I'm sure some of what I think has been thought a million times before and some is completely random but I needed to get myself in a place where I knew what I wanted to write and how I wanted to write it.
The funny thing is that I never expected anyone to read anything I wrote - I didn't realize that there were wonderful communities of like-minded women who were writing blogs too. I didn't know about link ups and blog building facebook posts or any of that stuff. I have already "met" so many lovely ladies and I'm noticing that I am commenting on their blogs and they've noticed they can't comment on mine.
So, with great trepidation and a firm grip on my wavering self-esteem, I'm going to undo my comment blocking and open myself up to more conversations and feedback and camaraderie and just go with the flow of being part of a big wide blogging world that I was completely unaware of less than six months ago! So......it's a big HI!! from me and I'd love you to leave a "howdy" back to me in my newly established comments section and thanks so much for reading this and being one of those lovely people who I have had the pleasure of encountering online.
