I want to introduce myself, so you know where I’m coming from, so we can connect on some level and so you can put a face to the name of the girl who writes out the random, hilarious, awkward, interesting and sometimes useless thoughts that go on in her head. I am in my early thirties but prefer to tell people I am 29 plus tax. I don’t own a house, I don’t have children or a sparkly ring on my finger. I don’t have my ducks in a row, or a white picket fence. Heck, I don’t even have a career anymore and somedays I don’t have a click or a clue! But I do have a life that I have created that took courage, strength, selfishness, and taking risks, a life that I am incredibly grateful for, and that is what matters to me now and why I feel the need to write about it in the hopes that I can encourage others to take a step back from the demands of life and see light where there are shadows of darkness.
I recently moved across Canada; the country I love and adore, leaving behind a farm, my beloved animals of every shape, colour and temperament, a career that pushed me to my breaking point, a family of people I love dearly, and friends, things and a community that made saying goodbye a real feat. I left this all to create a life that I know is just beginning for me. I wanted to find success not in money or style, in possessions or things, but in what made my heart beat faster, what made me wipe away happy tears and a life I could be proud of, knowing I did what I could to make the most out of my time here on this earth.
In a world where everyone has a blog, an average of 4 sites to share things on, a world where we become “friends” with people we’ve never met in real life, and a place where everyone knows everything about you with the click of a button, I was hesitant to do this and to be honest I still don’t know what direction I want this to go but If I am able to influence even one person in the smallest way, then this will be worth it. If we can connect, relate and influence each other in a positive way then I will be forever grateful! Thanks for stopping by, I will warn you, your eyes will roll – a lot, some things I write about would only happen to me but I promise you they are true, and I am not the “beat around the bush” type.
