I have been toying with the idea of blogging for quite some time . . . a few years, in fact! I think my reluctance lies in the fact that I sort of hate to be the center of attention. It’s true. Birthdays freak me out. The idea of being a bride and having all eyes on me? Totally puts me over the top. Even a family going away party my mom threw for me last year gave me serious anxiety. Needless to say, the idea of devoting an entire blog to ME seemed impossible for a long time. My turning point?
Recent events have put me back on the dating scene. And you know what? I think I might be a lousy date! I feel like my anxiety about being the center of attention has caused me to completely and entirely lose myself. 😦 A guy I went out with a couple of months ago asked me what I liked to do. Lamest date ever had no answer. What do I like to do, anyway??? Sheesh. This is a problem.
So here I am. The idea behind my blogging is to find me, focus on me, and discover what I want, value, and enjoy. I think I already have some of the answers, but learning and growing will only make me a better, stronger person. I’ll try not to get too mushy on you because it’s really just not my style, but I can’t promise a super peppy post every day of the week. I am a (fairly) normal person; I have up days and down days. But I do promise you this: I will be real with you. If you have a question, ask it. I’ll be honest. Afterall, how am I going to find myself if I’m not being honest?
Alrighty then! If you’re still reading, here’s a few things you need to know about me (would these be acceptable things to share with a first date???):
I have an unnatural obsession with Victoria’s Secret PINK. I have sweats, hoodies, bags, water bottles, you name it. Love!
I like running. Really. I have horrible knees and probably shouldn’t run at all, ever, but running makes me happy. So I do it. I have never gone running and thought afterwards, “Man, I really wish I had stayed home on the couch.” Nope. Makes me feel better every time I do it!
Wine is delicious. The end.
Last, but absolutely NOT least, I love love love to cook and bake! Living alone makes baking a pretty dangerous undertaking given the fact that I have pretty much zero self control around baked goods. But I love it, so I bake. And then I run. 🙂
There ya have it. A little bit about me. Hope you come back!!!
A Q for you . . .
What do you like to do???
