So I start a blog, now what?

Of all the crazy things I can add to my life, I somehow thought that it would be neat for me to start a blog. I spent the day thinking about my life. Where I am now, where I was ten years ago and where I would like to be in ten years.

I can honestly say that my life, my journey thus far has been interesting and great. It hasn’t always been easy. But whose life is? I thought that by creating his blog, it will be my way new way of journaling. I have contemplated starting a blog for quite some time now. At first it seemed so impersonal. However, the reality is ,is that life is so very busy. There are so many friends that I have made along the way that I don’t get to talk to much, but always think about. And when I want to see how they are doing, I check their blog.  Therefore, it made perfectly good sense to me that I'd start a blog.  I figured it would be a good thing just in case there was a friend or two out there who had the urge check mine.  LOL.  

Working in mental health, I spend the vast majority of my work day alone, or with people who have severe and persistent mental illnesses. That isn’t always easy. And I so desperately need a break from that at times.  Most people who know me know that I am a facebook junkie. Actually, a borderline addict. I cant help it. Sad, but true.  It is my connection to the outside world.

As I mentioned before, I have a very busy life. I am a wife, a mother to two amazing children, an employee. I am a friend, a volunteer. Bottom line, I am a busy woman. And there are times where there downright bizarre things that happen in my life. I guess this blog will be here for anyone who wants to follow me on my life's journey. And my hopes this time is that I wont abandon my blog and am able to keep it up.
