These Times, They Are A Changing

Well, hello there, blog land!

It’s been a hot minute, hasn’t it?

I’m sure if you’ve been around or reading for any length of time, you’ve noticed that I tend to drop off here and there. Mostly because I always felt like I didn’t really have anything interesting to talk about, but also for other reasons. Mainly, the voice that I had taken in my blogging.

I haven’t really been happy with where this blog has gone. And it’s no fault of anyone but myself. I have a few general rules in life, that I practice in real life and on social media, and they are as follows: I don’t post or talk about politics or religion, I don’t get sucked into arguments involving another’s personal beliefs (no matter whether I agree with their statements or not), I don’t get involved in the GMO/Organic/Vegan discussions and my dirty laundry stays in the hamper where it belongs. I simply try to avoid these topics in real life and in my social media life. I don’t care what you want to post about. If you are super into your religion and want to shout it from the roof tops, go ahead! You hate/love the new president and want to bitch/moan/gloat/praise, I’m not going to stop you.

*Not saying that if you ask me about my beliefs or opinions on any of these matters, I won’t share them with you. I will, they just aren’t something I am passionate about, nor do I feel/want to argue with you and cause a rift in our friendship/relationship/whatever we have going on.

But at the same time, I have felt very inauthentic when it comes to my blog. I feel as though I am just throwing crap up here, trying to at least put something on the screen that you might find at least a little bit interesting. If you ever knew me in real life, and then happened across my blog here, you would in no way, shape, or form think that I was the same person. Profanity on the blog? Nope. Real life? I’d make a sailor blush.

I’m not a fitness blogger, a fashion blogger, a running blogger, a yoga blogger, or even a cooking blogger. I’m not even remotely qualified to give any type of adult advice, especially about finances or being the perfect wife/daughter/sister/friend. But I do really enjoy writing. And these past couple of years have been a bit of a personal struggle for myself to figure out who *I* really am. I mean I am going to be 33 years old this year, shouldn’t I have some sense of identity? Or is it normal to still feel like you don’t have shit figured out from one day to the next? I certainly don’t have the answer to either of those questions.

I guess what I am trying to say, is that I am working on figuring out an identity for this space of mine on the interwebs. I do love running and yoga (even though I can’t do either one of those right now), and I do love cooking. I love being outside and I love creating things, whether it be food, art, or crafting.

I’m hoping that some of you will stick around while I working on getting this little space a bit more authentic with myself. I hope that I don’t offend you, but if I do, we can talk it out. There are so many different things that make up who I am, it seems, and I’d really like to share those with you. If any of you have any feedback, I’d appreciate it greatly. Let me know if there is a specific element you like about this little blog, or if there is something you’d like to see go. I’m currently taking a physical pen to actual paper to try to figure out where this journey will take me, so it would be great to have some input along the way!

Thank you!
