I believe I have many positive qualities I bring to all of my relationships in my life, be they with my coworkers, friends, family, or a boyfriend. As we mature we refine our qualities and everyone in our life helps to either buff or hone those qualities as needed.
I think one key quality to any lasting relationship is the ability to compromise. And recently I’ve noticed a lot of compromising going on at my end of the relationship. A few examples:
My 15 year old daughter is a freshman in high school. In one of her classes she has to rewrite and memorize a “slam poem” (don’t ask me, I have no clue what it is and I haven’t gotten around to Googling it yet). Continue reading →
I read. A lot.
As in, “I-have-three-to-six-books-going-at-one-time-and-I-finish-at-least-70-books-a-year” a lot.
And all of the books I have read all have little bits of paper marking various pages that have resonated with me in one way or another. A couple of books even have dog-eared pages, but this is only a recent development as I’ve always felt this is a desecration to the sanctity of the book. As I get older, I’m ok with dog-ears.
It’s been a long time since I’ve attended to my blog. Life takes over sometimes, and when I started my blog in the past I was hung up on such things as, “What should my blog be about? Am I supposed to stick to one main theme? How personal can I get and what shouldn’t I talk about?”
All of those concerns and many more prevented me from JUST BLOGGING. There are many blogs out there that are themed-based, and that’s ok. I like those blogs and follow many of them specifically because of the themes they blog about.
I’m not that specific. My mind goes in a thousand different directions and I want to chat about all of them – sometimes. That’s another hang-up; being too closed-off. But I think it’s time I just let it all out there, consequences be damned, and hopefully experience a euphoric release of a mind full of topics in a world willing to soak them up.
So get ready, world. I’m about to open the gates. Let’s see what charges out, shall we?
